To all of you who have wondered what ever happened to my wiggly cushion: it's finished at last! Look:
You might think that I have been really lazy because it took so long, but I swear: I've been working on it ever since I've started it, but at times it seemed there was no end in sight. When the rounds got bigger, I really thought it would take forever! I've worked the ruffles with a rather thin cotton yarn (Catania) and a 2.5mm hook, so I had to add round after round before it had the size to fit the little (!) IKEA cushion. I LOVE close-ups:
All in all I'm quite happy with it: this is my first wiggly cushion that has exactly the same structure that my Grandma's cushions used to have, and it's not so... sloppy like the ones I've made before. But: I think it will take a while before I'll make another one, it's been a little too much effort for such a little cushion :)
With a front side like this, I wanted to have a simple back side and turned a striped pattern that I've seen on Petite Fee into a Granny Square:
Today I've discovered that I'm in very good company: Angie from Le Monde de Sucrette has used the same pattern for her Mosaic Cushion. It looks great with the colors she has chosen and you can also find the pattern on her site!
