How many times have you splurged on a gorgeous skein of sock yarn, or beautiful hand-dyed 4ply, only to have it languish at the bottom of your stash basket awaiting the perfect project to make the most of its beauty? If it’s more than you care to mention, then this cushion cover might just be the one to finally tempt you into winding one or two of those precious skeins into a ball. The popcorn stitches - an absolute joy to crochet - are so good at making the most of variegated yarns by showing off every colour to maximum effect, and the white background really makes those popcorns pop!
