    Diamond Stitch Cushion Pattern

    Thanks for checking out my Diamond stitch pillow crochet pattern. I bought some lovely silver yarn to make something for myself, somehow it ended up being something for our home, ha! I cant be the only one who struggles to treat myself? I did really need some new cushions, I’m so happy with how this one turned out and I’m looking forward to making more. The Diamond stitch cushion is measures 18″ x 18″. It has a truly beautiful texture and looks really modern and cosy. As the name suggests, its made using the diamond stitch. If you have not tried the stitch yet, this is a lovely project to give it a go. You won’t be disappointed!

    How to crochet a diamond stitch cushion

    The Diamond stitch cushion crochet pattern is intermediate skill level. The diamond stitch is a 4 row repeat and is easy enough once you get going. You will need to know your basic crochet stiches to complete the pattern as well as ‘front post treble crochet 2 together’ (instructions included). Each side of the cushion is made separately and they are joined together at the end using single crochet to give a nice neat ridge. There is no sewing involved in this pattern. To make the diamond cushion I used Aran (weight 4) yarn. I also used a 5mm crochet hook but you may need to adjust your hook after completing your gauge swatch to ensure a good fit to your 18″ cushion. The diamond cushion uses approximately 410g (804m/880yd) of yarn.
