To Make Shorter Back Flap of Cushion Cover

  • Working with RS out attach A to bottom right corner (the row you will now work into is the initial starting chain row).
  • Row 1 – work 1 dc into each dc across (work into the body of the stitch not the bottom loop of the starting chain) 56dc made, ch1, turn.
  • Row 2 – work 1 dc into each dc across, 56dc made, ch1, turn.
    Repeat Row 2 for a further 43 rows or until back flap measures approximately 9 inches, fasten off.

45 rows worked.
Weave in ends.

Closing Cushion Cover Seams

  • Make sure RS is facing out, turn cover over and fold flaps up. The bottom shorter flap will sit underneath the longer top flap. Use dc stitches to close the seams of the cushion cover.
  • Attach A into the bottom corner space, (be sure to catch both back and front covers with your crochet hook), work 3dc into the corner space.
  • Work 1dc into each row space as your work up the side-edge of the cushion cover (work into both back and front sides of the cover with your hook).
  • At the top corner space work 3dc into same space, slst into next stitch and fasten off.
  • Repeat again to close the opposite side of the cushion cover.
  • Weave in ends.

    Looking to try this cushion cover, Hobbycraft square pads are 16inch,this pattern is for 15 inch? Have also checked out eBay and most cushion pads are in even measurements i.e. 14 inch square,16 inch etc. Is the pattern size a misprint or does it need to be adjusted?

  • Julie Knowles

    Hi Paula, a cushion cover should always be slightly smaller than the cushion pad – this way you get a plumper cushion. Also because of the nature of yarn it tends to ‘give’ more than say cotton once the pad is inside the cover. So this should work with the size of pad given in the pattern. But also remember that your tension may affect the fit so it’s good to check that by working a 10 x 10 square in your chosen yarn before starting. Hope that helps. Best wishes, Julie
