Granny Square Cushion Pattern - Free Crochet Pattern

Moving on from yesterdays blog post about how to stop a granny square from slanting (hope you have noticed a difference) I thought I would share a granny square cushion pattern with you today so you can put your granny square making skills into practice using the method i wrote about yesterday and make something instead of a blanket.

Pattern Notes


Materials Required:

> U.S. 6 - 4mm Crochet Hook
> Aspen, Cream (644 yards) Spring Green, Citron, Apricot, Fondant, Candyfloss, Wisteria, Sherbert - 322 yards each colour apart from cream
> Tapestry Needle / Darning Needle
> Scissors

Gauge:

> N/A

Sizing:

> 18 inch square (Approx)

Notes: 

> After each round turn your work for example, After round 1 is complete and you have turned your work to begin round 2 the wrong side of your work will be facing you, after round 2 is complete and you have turned your work to begin round 3 the right side of your work will be facing you - So you are basically flipping your work over after each round before you begin your next round, by doing this will stop your square from slanting as it gets bigger.

> Fasten off after each round is complete and join yarn in any ch2 space to start new round.


Colour Sequence Notes:

> Change colour at the end of each round by following the colour sequence below.
