Candy Cushion: The pattern

Good morning sweet friend,

This is, as promised, the pattern of the candy cushion: It is very simple to make, you’ll see…

For my candy cushion I used Stylecraft special DK yarn with a 3.5 mm crochet hook…

First, you have to make a 66 chain loop and close it… and then continue making rounds of dc in order to have a big empty cylinder…

For mine I made: (from left to right):

7 rounds of dc in red color

and then 7 rounds of dc in lavender color

and after 7 rounds of dc in sunshine color

and then, careful here: 2 rounds of dc in green color, than 1 round of treble in green color and 2 rounds of dc in green color

(you have to make a round of tr where you want to pass a chain loop to close your candy) I’ll try to make it clearer with more pics after)

and then 7rounds of dc in plum color, 7 rounds of dc in shrimp color, 7 rounds of dc in turquoise color, 7 rounds of dc in pomegranate color, 7 rounds of dc in yellow color, 7 rounds of dc in magenta color, 7 rounds of dc in aspen color, 7 rounds of dc in red color, 7 rounds of dc in lavender color

and then again: 2 rounds of dc in green color, than 1 round of tr in green color and 2 rounds of dc in green color

and 7 more rounds of dc in plum color, 7 rounds in shrimp color and finally 7 rounds of turquoise color :)

You can see, the two small white pearls in the pic above, is where I crocheted a round of tr…

The whole candy is made with rounds of dc….The only two rounds of tr (where are the two white pearls) are for passing the chain loop between the stitches to close the candy…

Once you finished the big cylinder (as big as you want your candy to be), you have to crochet a border like this:

in order to have a perfect candy ;)

and then crochet two 66chain loop with the red color:

and pass the two chain loop between the  stitches of the two treble  rounds:

and then, pull well before doing a double knot on one side:

stuff good your candy and then pull well the second side and close it with a double knot…

Your candy is done:):)

Hope I made it clear with my explanations…

Please feel free to ask anything, I’ll be more than happy to help you:)

Before I go, I want to thank all of you for your nice comments on my blog and I want you to go to Maaike and see the cute poncho she made with my pattern…It is lovely, Maaike!  You did a really good job!!

Sweet day to you all,

    Love your designs! I live abroad in a country where people only crochet to make doilies and I can only get DK or worsted acrylic yarn in crayon box colors, so these are perfect for me!!!

    Thank you so much!!
