Cushion Cover 4

32 tiny two-round grannies came together with a lovely, rich shade of grey to make this 20″ square cushion cover.

I enjoyed every moment from choosing the crazy colors to reacquainting myself with an old joining method of mine! I used slip stitch to join the squares, and I love the raised grid result.

I worked 2 regular solid granny rounds, then added the first round grey with front side facing, then a second round grey with wrong side facing. This forms extra texture around the edge of each granny square.

After everything was joined together, I used reverse SC in a neon green all around three edges of the cushion – joining front to back – then added buttons down the final side across from button loops.

I have come to enjoy making cushion covers, as it is like a mini-blanket and I get to practice techniques across smaller dimensions. I suggest making one if you haven’t! 🙂
