What a quick work-up this is! I use 32 total two-round solid granny squares, which are so great to use up remnants. Then I border each with two rounds grey, working the second round on the wrong side to add visual interest.

This is the one project where I do not join as I go… I slip stitch the squares together to form a raised grid on the piece. You could add buttons at the crosses, but I like the unfinished look!

Once both sides are complete, I go around three of the edges (wrong sides held together) with a reverse single crochet. Rev SC is not the same on both sides, but it does look pretty enough from the wrong side to still look great. on the fourth side, I sew buttons and crochet button holes for the closure. I’ve thought about trying an envelope closure with this piece, but haven’t braved it yet! Would have to buy a 22″ cushion for testing.

FIN!

    1. Lol! I am very persistent to finish a project once I start it. While I do enjoy the process, it’s the finished object that gives me joy! 🙂

      Thanks for reading and a happy holiday season to you!
