I'm really liking the stripes with the heathered blue and cream--very pretty. The section I'm working on will wrap 'round the top and bottom. Then my plan is to make a narrow ribbon in single crochet to cover the sides. I'm hoping to attach the sides to the main section with crab stitch--a nice little detail.

There's a quarter left to go before the main piece is completed. The sides shouldn't take too long to complete since they'll be narrow and short. Once I finish this prototype, the next two cushions shouldn't take too long (famous last words? Hope not). Besides, re-doing the whole project will help me refine my pattern notes.
Once completed rest assured I'll be posting the pattern here for free. I can't believe others haven't had the same idea percolating in their heads. And I know I've come across patterns online for chair covers.
