The Nomad by Fate cushion – FREE PATTERN INSIDE

Hi again,

It was a while ago that I updated this blog. Time is tight when you are a father of two wild daughters. Finally I found the time to write the final pattern in the “Nomad by Fate” series. It is a cushion this time, crocheted front and backside. Of course it is possible to sew fabric on the backside and only crochet the front. It is, as always your choice.



This time I used Scheepjes Cahlista in 7 different shades. On one side they run from dark to light and in the other side the other way around it is.


Ginger Gold, Saffron, Yellow Gold, Lemon, Lemonade, Candle Light, Snow White

The pattern is mostly written late at night or/and with at least on daughter on my lap. It is not tested, so as always if you find mistakes, please contact me. The structure of the pattern will (for the most of you) speak for itself. It is in U.S. / European terms this time. I hope to have the time to translate it at least to UK terms soon.

As I always try to encourage people I added a little, simple design tool. It is very easy to create your own version of an apache tears based square as it always follows the same structure. You will find an empty chart to design your own version, the “Nomad by Fate” stitch pattern (easier to crochet along) and the “Nomad by Fate” design version (easier to see what it will loo like) below. You do not have to use 45 you can stop whenever you want or make it as big as you want.  The first row of the chart is 4 row of the written pattern. I used the exact same structure for the “Nomad by Fate” square. So grab your crayons and start drawing!
