Double thickness rug or chair seat cushion “The Sun”. Easy crochet tutorial pattern instant download -- Olga Andrew Designs Pattern 056.
This is a step-by-step tutorial pattern for a hand crocheted double thickness rug or chair seat cushion “The Sun”, which can be used as chair (stool, bench, armchair etc.) seat cover or decoration. The back of the cushion is one-colour (bright orange). The pattern can be made up with any yarn. The instructions have been tested on several types of yarn and thread. If you use a different yarn brand or type, use an average hook size between the smallest and largest on the yarn label. Variations and experimentations are unlimited!
The pattern includes detailed photos with instructions how to make it -- useful for beginners. This pattern uses only basic stitches, so beginners should have no problem with it. It is written in English using Standard US crochet terminology (with UK crochet terminology if necessary).
Skill level: easy (you only need basic crochet skills).
Materials you will need: 1) crochet yarn (I used Premium Acrylic DK yarn) bright orange (approx. 135 g) as a basic colour, light orange (approx. 80 g), bright yellow (approx. 40 g) and pale yellow (approx. 25 g). Total weight is 280 g. 2) crochet hooks (I used hook size 7 mm and 5 mm).
The approximate diameter of the crocheted rug or chair seat cushion without fringe is about 41 cm (about 16.1 inch), with fringe about 60 cm (about 23.6 inch). The size of the circle may vary depending on the type of yarn, hook size and how tightly you crochet.
