Follow-up Friday – The “Gelato Gemini”

maRRose - CCC - The Gelato Gemini Triangle Cushions-30The lovely customer that bought this triangle cushion cover, recently asked me if I could make her two more. They had to be identical to the first one, and so I started to work on the “Gelato”-twins. Crocheting the triangles is the simple part, but it
gets pretty fiddly putting them together.

Lots of doing and undoing takes place, just until I’m satisfied with how my tri shaped pieces of crochet are lined up.

I sewed them on the wrong side of the front (the inside of the cushion cover), and the spaces between the dc’s (trebles: UK) of the back were just the perfect little buttonholes.
