A crocheted cover for a flat seat cushion measuring 13¾ x 13¾ x approx. ¾ in / 35 x 35 x approx. 2 cm. The stitch technique produces a firm structure, almost like woven fabric. The technique and striping combine to give the cover a nostalgic touch of the old Swedish bolster fabrics. The cover can be machine-washed because it is crocheted in a durable 100% cotton yarn, Järbo Soft Cotton. It’s a practical and pretty furnishing detail suitable for outdoors or the balcony.
