Pattern Notes

Starting/turning chs do not count as a st throughout. Work is turned at the end of each row.

Cushion cover is worked flat, in one piece and joined on completion.

 

Colour Changes

Colour changes are made with the last yo of the previous st. The yarn colour not currently being worked should be carried within the sts, as sts are worked over the top. Gently pull the non-active yarn before changing colour to ensure that all yarns lay flat within the work.

It is not necessary to carry Yarn B to the end of each row. Yarn B should be released to the WS of the work once the final stitch of that colour has been made in each row. It will then be picked up again in the following row and carried within the stitches until needed.

Finishing

Lay piece flat with RS facing up, measure 20cm (44 rows) from the top and fold towards the middle. Measure 25cm (55 rows) from the bottom and fold towards the middle. There should be an overlap of approx. 15cm. Pin the side seams and sew along the side edges, ensuring that all three layers of crochet fabric are attached together in the overlap section. Weave in all ends. Turn cushion cover back through so RS is facing out.

Tassels

Cut fifty 25cm lengths of Yarn A.

Cut one 40cm length of Yarn A and tie all strands together around the middle (Photo 1).

Fold in half.

Wrap a 40cm length of Yarn A twice around all 100 stands approx. 3cm from the top (Photo 2).

Tie to secure.

Using Yarn B and a tapestry needle follow Photos 3-7 to sew on the ghost face. Knot ends and trim to create the mouth. Trim ghost tassel to tidy.

Make 3 more ghost tassels. Attach one ghost tassel to each corner.

Insert cushion pad to finish.
