Crochet Bobble Cushion Cover Pattern

Mar 2021

This cushion pattern combines one of our favourite yarns with one of our favourite stitches. We’ve made a crochet cushion cover pattern using a chunky weight hank that has the most tactile bobble stitch finish. We used just 1 hank to make a set of 2 beautiful cushions.

It has a modern, minimalist look, perfect for any room in your home and can be quickly made because of the super chunky weight of the wool. If you make a cushion cover (or two) for yourself, we’d love to see it! Remember to tag us on Instagram using @Woolyknit or send us your photos in an email.

If you’d like to see more of our free patterns, you can find lots of project inspiration from crochet hearts to knitted socks on our blog.

HOW TO DO A BOBBLE STITCH:
YO, insert your hook, pull up a loop, YO, pull through 2 loops. YO, insert hook into same space, pull up a loop, YO, pull through 2 loops. Repeat until you have 6 loops on your hook. YO and pull through all 6 loops.

Top tip: after each bo stitch, make your dc stitch tight to make the bo stitch pop out
