My Granny Square Cushion


Want to make a granny square cushion? Why not think of one yourself? I was on holiday a couple of months ago, and I did not bring enough yarn to finish my blanket. So while I was on the boat back home (Dover - Calais) I used the yarn that was left and invented my own cushion. I tried and tried until I had the granny square I loved. So I finished the cushion at home and now it is still a nice memory of a perfect holiday!

  2. So lovely--I've been wanting to make one of these myself. Perhaps after I finish my granny square blanket that I'm currently working on.

  4. Hi Mira! I joined them by crochet. I have written down the pattern but unfortunately it is in Dutch and I don't think that's working for you. Anyway, this is how I did it (in short). Just lay the good sides of the squares onto eachother. Then crochet into the holes between the stitches on the previous rounds. Perhaps the pictures on my blog can help you a bit. Remember that you make rows at first, and after that attach the rows in the some way you've attached the squares. Hope this helps!
    Bye!
