Last fall, after 3 years, I finally completed an afghan that was made in “crayon colours”. When it came to the outside border, I added more yarn for the border so I could make better use of the fabulous center colours by incorporating a customized colour-block design. When I still had yarn scraps in all of the colours left, I wanted to keep going. So, I created these crayon-coloured cushion tops.
In my early June blog posts on KNITmuch, I made several samples of the afghan design I made for the Fun with Flags series. The main afghan was red and gold, but one of the samples was made in blue and gold. This colour combination was admired by all who saw it, so I decided to try out the stained glass cushion top on the scraps of blue and gold yarn as in these pictures.
