This is a “freeform” crochet project I started with the yarn I ripped out of my knitted Adult Surprise Jacket. Freeform means there is no written pattern, I simply crochet it as I go.  So there is (and will BE no) pattern to share.

I have a lone couch cushion I use to lean on when I sit on my bed that is falling apart, held together currently with duct tape, which I loathe as the duct tape sticks to the pillow, the mattress, etc. when I use it.  As we live in a tiny studio apartment, my bed is my work table, my computer desk, my dinner table, my TV easy chair, etc.

I used foundation single crochet to “start” the orange area right above the variegated area in the very top of the photo, then crocheted an oval “racetrack” until the orange (Red Heart Super Saver in Carrot) until that bit of the yarn ran out, then grabbed the variegated (Marrakesh, which has a bit of the Carrot as one of its’ colors), and now am working with Carrot again until I reach the bottom of the cushion (also = the bottom of this photograph)
