A quick and easy project, great for using up scraps and makes a excellent gift.

This pattern is for turning the African Flower motif into a pincushion. (African Flower pattern not included)

Also available as a photo tutorial style pattern.

Skill Level:
Uses simple stitches, experience working in the round would be useful.

You’ll just need a few yards of 4ply/DK/aran or worsted yarn. (I used Debbie Bliss Baby Cashmerino)

A crochet hook, or size appropriate for the yarn you’re using. (I used 3.5 mm - E USA)

Toy filling or some other stuffing material
Yarn needle

This will vary depending of the weight of yarn and size of hook you use. (Mine are 8cm/3” across and 3cm/1” high)

Will vary with weight of yarn and size of hook used. You just want it to be tight enough to hold a nice shape when stuffed.
