Make your own mini bean stitch cushion

Mini Bean Stitch Cushion

By Jo Janes

I was lucky enough to be taught how to knit and crochet from my two grandmothers when I was a little girl.  I picked up my hook in my 20’s and then again in my mid 30’s and this is where my passion took off.  Since the beginning of 2018, I have had my patterns published in both the UK and US including Crochet Now Magazine, Big and Little Crochet Partworks Series and Interweave Crochet Magazine.

I particularly love designing homewares and I draw my inspiration from my surroundings incorporating simple colour combinations which bring a pop of colour to your home.
