Smashed hit – crochet avocado cushion

Simply_Crochet_issue81_avocado

Oh the Avocado – first they wangled their way into our fruit bowls, and now they want a spot on our sofas. But who could deny world dominion to something so delicious? Made using super-chunky yarn means this fellow is a speedy stitch, plus he’s not too tricky to make either – once you’ve mastered the front and back pieces, the features are plain sailing. Skip the pompoms if you like.

DMC Natura XL (100% cotton, 100g/75m) in Dark Green (08), Soufre (90), Ivory (03), Black (02), Bonbon (40)

A 6mm (US J/10) hook
