{Crochet} Chunky Popcorn Cushion

cool crochet cushions

I have a slight addiction to round crochet cushions, so i wanted to share this free Simply Chunky Paintbox cushion pattern (the pink and blue cushions). This pattern works up quickly and can easily be finished in a day. It only take 2-3 balls of Paintbox Yarns Simply Chunky, depending on your tension. The Watermelon Cushion you see pictured here is available in my Pattern Shop and is an absolute bargain considering the amount the information i’ve packed into the tutorial. For Aussie shoppers, i have kits available too. If you’d prefer a PDF download of the Paintbox Yarns pattern, then head to Love Crochet for the FREE download. free round chunky cushion

  1. Thank you for the tutorial, this looks really fun to make. Nice gift ideas even if given as a kit to someone to make themselves.

  2. Thank you for the pattern. I love all of your round cushions. I’ve only made one but I found some round pillow forms at a rummage sale one time and I’d like to make some more.

  3. This is an awesome cushion should try. I am not good in reading the knitting. Is there any tutorial in video? Thank you :)
