Crochet – Granny Square Cushion Covers

I love making granny squares so I decided to make a couple of cushions for the lounge.  The lounge has tourquoise curtains and cushion covers but I have never liked the 2 cushions that came with the suite (in the same material), hence the idea of a couple of crocheted ones.

I didn’t use a pattern but kept crocheting until they were the right size.  For the back I crocheted trebles in rows and made a couple of flowers for the closure.

To finish the edging Iused crab stitch (backwards doubles) which takes a long time but give a good edging.

I used Rowan Pure new wool DK, does split a bit when crocheting but shouold wash well.
