The Ludlow Cushion is a beautiful textured cushion making a stylish and comfortable addition to any living space. It is made by crocheting a textured pattern that mimics the appearance of a woven basket. The cushion can be made in a variety of colors and sizes, making it a versatile piece that can match any decor. The basket weave pattern adds a touch of texture to the cushion, making it visually interesting and eye-catching.
