Neon OMG! Cushion Free Tutorial
OMG! It’s a neon, pompom cushion! Say it with neon with Kath Webber’s fun and funky cushion pattern project this weekend!
Say it with neon with Kath Webber’s fun and funky cushion pattern! Tapestry crochet lends itself delightfully to this season’s slogan trend, and nothing says it quite like neon! Grab a few balls of Paintbox Yarns Simply Chunky and your pompom makers for a super-fun quick boudoir cushion.
You Will Need:
- Paintbox Yarns Simply Chunky (100% Acrylic, 100g/136m) 1 ball each of Neon Pink, Seville Orange, and Marine Blue
- 6mm Hook
- 5mm Pompom maker
- Toy stuffing or cushion measuring 45cm x 25cm
Abbreviations: ch chain; dc double crochet
The back and front pieces follow the same basic pattern- make the back piece in plain fabric using the Marine Blue, while you add the writing design with tapestry crochet.
Using 6mm hook, make 46 chain.
Starting in second ch from hook, make 1dc in each ch across, turn. 45 dc.
Rows 2 to 30. 1ch (does not count as dc), 1dc in each dc across, turn. 45dc.
Work in the main colour until the stitch before the colour change. Insert the hook into the next st, then draw a loop back through so that you have two loops on the hook.
Now drop the main colour from your yarn hand and pick up the contrasting colour, and complete the stitch by taking the yarn over hook and drawing it through both loops on the hook. Crochet over the main colour while you work your contrasting stitches.
Read a crochet chart starting in the bottom right-hand corner, then read from right to left. You can use a piece of washi tape to help guide the rows. Alternate rows should be read from left to right.

Place the two pieces wrong sides together and pin to hold in place.
Using a yarn needle and some left over yarn from one of the cushion pieces, over sew the pieces together, stuffing firmly with the toy stuffing before sewing completely shut.
Make four pompoms, then stitch one to each corner to complete.
And oh my golly gosh, an OMG cushion!
