Front is a Flowers in the Snow granny square pattern, with a light green background. I used a continuous join-as-you-go, which I wrote up in a tutorial here.

Tip: Joining

I have seen many times that folks confuse “join-as-you-go” with “continuous join-as-you-go.” When you join continuously, you start at a corner motif and join in a continuous motion non-stop until the motifs are all joined and the blanket is finished. With the regular method, you are joining each motif to the last when you work the final round.

And FIN!

Where’s┬áthe back of the cushion?┬áSee the┬áfunky-colored granny square down below! Love it! I used my Perfect Granny Square pattern. The recipient wanted a scrappy look, so while I didn’t use scraps, I did start and stop mid-round for a more off-beat┬áfeel.

Tip: Construction

To join back to front, I worked a reverse SC stitch around with the wrong sides held together. Since this stitch is not reversible, I had to be careful how I designed it. I wanted the right side to be on the front, so I held that side facing. A decorative XXXXX is formed around the border on the back of the cushion. It complements the youthful nature of the cover. Pretty!

The front cover had 5 more stitches per side than the back cover, so I had to ease it in as I went around joining. It worked out fine, and is not noticeable.
