Popcorn Cushion Pattern
Hi everyone. Perhaps you've been looking out for the pattern of this very squishy popcorn cushion cover. The publication is a bit overdue because I'm working on so many different things at the moment and I simply forgot to post it. It's a very beginners-friendly design with a striking result. It's so tactile! I'm going to use it as a yoga cushion; very soft on the you know what ;-)
Enjoy!

Pattern Notes
  • Each popcorn consists of 5 trc.
  • Each square consists of 8 rounds but you can of course make the square as large or as small as you'd like.
  • Colour scheme: I always like the front and back of the cover to be different so I changed the order of the colours around. Please note that if you want the sides to be exactly the same, you'll need more than 3 balls of the colour you use for rounds 4 and 8.

Joining the squares
Put the squares with the right sides together and at the back work 3 sc in the ch-2 spaces in between each popcorn. 
To join the 2 sides of the cover, place them with the wrong sides together and again work 3 sc in the ch-2 spaces in between each popcorn.
