Apache Tears Free Pattern

Apache Tears

I have some squares left over from one of the girls blankets so I thought I would join them together and make them into a cushion cover.

But they would need a back…………., then I remembered a pattern that I found called Apache Tears that I have been wanting to try. Yes I think this is going to work just fine.

Thank you so much to Sarah for sharing this lovely pattern.

    I have this pattern in my Library on Ravelry, I’m inspired to try it now, it’s beautiful πŸ™‚

      It really is lovely to work up apart from all the ends, but I would stop and sew them in as I went along every 6-8 rows. I have just posted my finished cushion too so you can see it finished if you would like.

    What a lovely pattern. I really like your colour choices as well.

      I can definitely recommend it, the only down side is sewing all the ends in as you start every row from the right hand side but I keep stopping and am sewing them in as I go.

        Thanks! I didn’t get a chance to start it last night but I will give it a go as soon as I can.

    Do you carry your yarns throughout? I’ve always had an irrational fear of having to finish a bunch of ends off.

    What a gorgeous pattern, and lovely colours.

      Thanks, I am really enjoying making it, it provides such a strong contrast to the squares on the other side of the cushion.

    What a great stitch. I’ve never come across that one before.
    Your squares look adorable. Will be lovely when it’s finished.

      It was new to me too, that was why I could not resist trying it out. On another note how much sugar to you use per lb of blackcurrants to make your jam? And do you use jam sugar or regular?


      • lovelucie1 August 13, 2013 / 20:07

        My recipe is 1kg black currants simmered in 600ml water for 15 mins. Then add 1.5kg of normal granulated sugar (or golden granulated ) and stir til dissolved then hard boil for 5 mins then test. You can use preserving sugar but not the one with added pectin. Black currants have their own pectin

    Looks really complicated but very effective.

    looks difficult, cant wait to see it finished


      • xloz68x August 10, 2013 / 21:37

        Will need to wait until I don’t have so many WIP though lol , but I will give it a go.
