This Sampler Square Cushion Cover is made by working Tunisian crochet in the round using a double ended crochet hook. The “forward pass” and the “return pass” are effectively worked in the same direction. The forward pass stitches are picked up in the usual way with Tunisian crochet, then the work is turned to enable the “return pass” to be worked with the other end of the double ended hook.

The main photograph illustrates the square made with Stylecraft Batik for the main colour and Stylecraft Batik Elements, a variegated yarn, for the contrast colour. It is a double knitting weight yarn, worked with a 5.00mm double ended crochet hook.

Please note you can use any weight of yarn with the appropriately sized hook for this pattern, but the tension/gauge and measurements will differ.

An intermediate skill level is needed. Some regular crochet is used to begin and finish which are explained in UK and US crochet terms.

An ideal pattern for making a blanket or throw!
