Crochet Flower Chair Pad Finished! お花の円座

 
 
This week, I finished making this crochet flower chair pad while I waited for my girl's dance lessons. 
 
次女のダンス教室待機中にお花の円座(手編み座布団)を完成させました。
 
 
 
Remember this image from my last post? Now you know that I was crocheting a flower chair pad :)
 
この写真は前回のブログ記事でご紹介したものです。あの時点では何を編んでいるのかお伝えしていませんでしたが、実は円座を編んでいました^^
 
 

 
To make this chair pad, I first crocheted two exactly same oversized doilies in different colors.


 
この円座は2枚の編み地を重ねて作ります。まずは毛糸の色をかえて2枚の編み地を編みました。
 


 
Then the two large doilies are layered right side out and joined together using slipstitch, single stitch and chains.
 
編みあがった編地を外表に合わせて、2枚一緒に、目を拾いながら引抜き編みと縁編みで編みつなぎます。
 



Yarn (使用毛糸): Lion Brand Baby's First
Hook (編み針): J or 6.0 mm
 
Free Pattern: Hamanaka Garbera Seat Cushion (offered by Japanese yarn company)
 


 



Placed on our kitchen stool.
 
キッチンのスツールにのせてみました。
 
 

 
Finished size: 14 1/2" or approximately 37 cm diameter
 
出来上がりサイズは直径約37センチ。
 
 


 I took an image of the reverse side of the chair pad.
 
裏側はこんな感じになっています。
 
 
 
Here's the side view. Because of the layered structure, the chair pad is thick and comfy to sit on.
 
側面です。この円座は太めの毛糸で編んだお花を二枚重ねているので厚みがあり、座り心地も良いです。
 
 
 
To warm our butts during the cold season (lol), I like to crochet seat cushions for our kitchen chairs.  These are the seat cushions I made earlier this year for our family.
 
これからの時期、冷えたお尻を暖めるために(笑)、毛糸の円座は大活躍です。これは今年の初めに家族のために編んだキッチンテーブルの椅子用円座3枚です。
 
 
 
These seat pads were made using *crochet star* stitches. Blogged here. I really enjoy trying out different stitches and patterns when I crochet. I have a long list of patterns and stitches that I would like to crochet, and I try to use any small time slots that I can find during the day ;) 
 
But my problem is that besides the long crocheting list, I also have a long list of things that I'd like to sew, patchwork, and quilt... while I juggle time over work, family, and kids. Oh, and of course I can't skip the blogging time! Just like many of you, for me, time management is the key to success in crafting! You should see how (less) often I vacuum our house since I began crafting! lol
 
 
写真の円座は*スタークロッシェ*という星のような仕上がりの編み目で編みました。 この写真は過去記事より。 私にとって、新しい編み図や編み目に挑戦するのは編み物をする上での醍醐味です^^ 
 
もっといろいろと編んでみたい編み図や編み目が山のようにあるので、今後も隙間時間を見つけてはコツコツ編みたいです♪ ただ、編み物以外にも、ソーイングやパッチワーク方面でも作りたいものが山のようにあり、家事、仕事、育児と手芸の両立が一番の課題です。 もちろんブログアップの時間も大切ですし(笑)。 子育て中や、お仕事をされている方で、手芸をされる方は皆さん同じだと思いますが、私も手芸をするようになって常に時間管理を意識するようになりました。手芸をする時間確保のために私がどれほど家事の手抜きをしているか...(苦笑)。
 
 
Anyways, the finished crocheted flower seat pad is so pretty and comfy that I'd like to make more for this winter. 
 
仕上がったお花の円座は可愛くて使い心地も良いので、寒くなる前にもっと編みたいです。
 
 
It's definitely getting more autumny even here in Southern California. Hope you continue to take care good care of yourselves and enjoy your weekend!
 
こちら南カリフォルニアでも少しずつ秋めいてきました。 皆さんも風邪などひきませんように、楽しい週末をお過ごしくださいね。
 
***Love, Amy***

Hi Amy I absolutely love your flower chair pad... It's beautiful. I cannot read these type of patterns. I was wondering is there a written pattern? Thanks for sharing :0))

Hello moizee! As you may already know, all crochet patterns in Japan are written in crochet chart diagram format, and that's how I learned how to crochet. It may look intimidating at first, but actually it's not that bad once you tackle the symbols.

Unfortunately, I don't have a written pattern available for this specific chair pad pattern, but I've searched the web and found some links that explains how to read the crochet chart symbols:

Hope these helps! Happy crocheting!
