In this simple crochet pattern, you will crochet a cushion back using double UK (single US) crochet and then cross stitch a heart pattern on top.

This pattern fits a 30cm x 30cm (12” x 12”) cushion pad so you’ll also need to get yourself one of those. The cover is slightly smaller than the pad, to make sure it fits nice and snugly.

Don’t worry if you’ve never cross-stitched on crochet fabric before, I’ve included full photo instructions for how to get started with your cross-stitch once the crochet fabric has been completed.

To make this cushion you’ll need 2 balls of Scheepjes Stonewashed (one for the front and one for the back!). You’ll also need some Scheepjes Catona to make the cross-stitch heart. You won’t need full balls of each colour.

You’ll also need a 3.5mm (size E) crochet hook and a tapestry needle for making your crochet cross-stitch heart.
