off the hook...patchwork cushion

It's a good week for finishing things! This cushion front has been waiting for a back for far too long. It felt quite flimsy in DK so I wanted the back to be a bit more substantial. I used two strands of the DK in slightly different blues and a 5mm hook, and guess which stitch? Yes my favourite half trebles (hdc in us terms)! They grow the fabric so quickly and with less twisty wrist stuff.

I had only planned to do half today but with constant rain, a clean house and nothing else to distract me I ended up finishing it all and crocheting it all together.

I love it. The men love it. E said it was cool. Need to do a lot more cushions.
