Crocheting: Citrus Vintage Popcorn Stitch Cushion Cover

 photo IMG_0805-160504-v2__zpsazf7aomz.jpgThis is the third installment of my crocheting journey with the vintage popcorn stitch cushion cover.  I made one in a citrus colored cotton yarn this time.  The first two are in vanilla and taupe.

I like the bright and cheery prints on this fabric that I bought in Japan.

I am going to take a break from this popcorn stitch pattern for a while.  There is another 3-D rosette granny square pattern that I have been dying to try and have only recently found a video tutorial on it.
