New Project

let's call it my birthday yarn. the Rowan pure wool DK selection I got on Monday. I am planning to make a cushion cover in Spring theme with popcorn flowers, for our couch. I made a couple before, you may remember them when you have a look here. the colours I choose this time are partly my all-time-favourite-go-to-colours; teal and blue. partly they totally match our interior colours; grey and dark gray, as well as peachy salmon. and then there's yellow, a colour that I am slowly starting to like especially in this golden hue. in real life it is not as orange as it appears on the pictures here. the yellow sure does bring a nice spark to the scheme. the idea was to make flower squares and join them with single crochet in yellow. but who knows what will happen on the way…

the pattern is based on the popcorn square pattern by Mille on her blog Mille Makes. I altered the flower here and there, and I am playing around with ideas for a smaller square shape. aaaah of course I started with teal, how I love this colour. the combination with peachy salmon is perfection to my eyes. calm and fresh, great for Spring.
