I’ve been looking for projects to use up my stash of leftover yarns. I really like making blocks as they are easy to carry around and fun to make. I found a pattern for a blanket made up of crochet blocks in Crochet Workshop by Erika Knight and used this as my starting point.
Using a colour palette of blues, greens and stone I made 25 squares, enough to make an 18″ cushion cover.
I joined the squares together using a contrasting dark grey yarn and DC crochet stitches.
For the back of the cushion I used the grey yarn and a simple ‘V’ crochet stitch. I did run out of the grey wool part way through (and I hadn’t made it wide enough), so I used the colours on the front to make a striped edge and fold over top.
I fastened the flap with five grey Fimo buttons that I found in my collection et voila!
