  • Yarn
  • Scissors
  • Stitch marker
  • Crochet hooks
  • Beads
  • Darning needle
  • Round cushion

Any type of yarn can be used for this project along with the yarn manufacturers recommendation of hook size. This project works best if you use two different shades of yarn that contrast with one another. We've used Cottonell by Wölle rödel. It's an aran weight cotton that comes in some fabulous shades. Creative cotton would also work great for this project. As recommended on the label of our yarn, We used a 4mm crochet hook for the main body of our cushion.

We bought ours from ebay and found that a quick search for "round cushion inserts" will give you a few options. Alternatively you can order round cushion inserts online from some of the following shops:
