Modern Diamond Bobble Stitch Crochet Cushion Pattern

The Diamond Bobble Cushion is a great bobble stitch crochet cushion pattern for any modern home. They are packed with texture, geometry and fun. Playing with mirror images and negative spaces, the bobble designs are simple yet really striking. 

Made as a panel for a crochet pillow cover to sew in place or a panel of each to encase your cushion – the choice is yours! 

They are perfect to stretch your crochet stitch knowledge and technique, they only use single crochet (US)/ double crochet (UK) and the crochet bobble stitch to complete the look.

About the bobble stitch crochet cushion pattern

Gosh it feels like an absolute age since I delved into the world of HanJan. In fact, it’s only a few months but so much has happened that it feels like forever.

A very long story short is that my husband has been extremely unwell and needed emergency brain surgery so with a six week old baby and a toddler too I literally had to ‘down tools’ and focus on our family.

I’m so happy to say that we are all doing really well now and I’m so excited to be able to get back here doing more of what I love.

So to ease me in gently I thought I’d share a really simple set of textured crochet cushion patterns with you that I designed a while back for Simply Crochet Magazine.

I have always designing and making home decor crochet patterns and we may have one, two or twenty crochet cushions in our house!

Other patterns you might enjoy

If you love a crochet cushion pattern as much as I do then you might like these too!

As you’ll see from my crochet cushion pattern collection – I usually choose the easy route and make a front to sew onto my cushions or pillows.

This isn’t just because I’m lazy! I much prefer them like this so that you can change the decor if you want by turning them around, plus it makes them really easy to unpick and change if you ever want to wash them or start over.

Yarn

For the original design I used Erika Knight Gossypium cotton (100% cotton, 50g/100m) – 4 balls per cushion of Iced Gem (504) but I have struggled to find anywhere to source this now.

My best recommendation would be Rico Essentials Cotton DK yarn, 100% cotton, 50g/120m, which is great to work with and a lovely soft cotton for homewares.

A great alternative if you want something a bit more luxurious is CotLin DK yarn by WeCrochet. It is 70% Tanguis Cotton and 30% Linen which gives it a beautiful texture and great stitch definition, especially for homewares.

Materials

Along with your yarn, you will need the following:

Tension and Sizing

18st and 20 rows = 10cm by 10cm (4x4in)

The finished cushion cover measures 45x45cm

Notes

A ch1 at the beginning of a row does not count as a stitch. 

Glossary/Abbreviations

ch – chain, 

ss – slip stitch, 

st- stitch, 

sk – skip, 

rep – repeat, 

RS – right side,
