Diamond Bobble Cushions – Free Crochet 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 cushion patterns with you that I designed a while back for Simply Crochet Magazine.

The Diamond Bobble Cushions are a simple and stylish addition to any home that plays with geometric shapes and the the idea of negative space by having a reflective design of the other. Hope you enjoy them!

Thank you so much for this pattern. It will go beautiful on my couch. I hope every one is doing fine and will keep you and your family in my prayers. Thank you for thinking of us.

Hi Love the look of these but could you explain why the row numbers from row 6 are only even numbers or have I missed something.

So glad you like them! Each odd row after row 5 is just a repeat of row 3 so rather than type that each time I just referenced it in row 5. Hope that makes sense! Best wishes Hannah.
