{Daisy Granny Square Pincushion}

I recently discovered Helen Philipp's blog! This lady creates wonderful things and has got lovely pictures to accompany her projects! Upon surfing her site I saw a pincushion she had made from some leftover daisy granny squares! So I decided to make my own. I hope you like my pincushion too!

MATERIALS
  • yarn in yellow, white and any color you like for the squares
  • 3.00 mm crochet hook 
  • fiberfill
  • Yarn needle
PATTERN
Daisy granny squares:

With yellow,
ch4 and form a circle with a sl.st.
R1: ch1,7sc in circle sl st to beg ch

With white,
R2: ch3 and make 2dc in same space, ch1, *3dc in next space, ch1* rep from* 6 times, sl st to 3rd ch from beg ch

With color of your choice,
R3: ch 3, 2dc ch1, 3dc in same space (first corner), * 3dc in next ch1 space, 3dc,ch1, 3dc (next corner)* rep from *5 times. Finish off and fasten off.

Joining your squares:
In order to join your granny squares you are going to sc them together. Of course you may use any other joining method you like, but I prefer this one since I like the effect it creates.

Back Piece:
You have to measure he exact number of stitches used to join your granny squares to determnine the size of your back piece. Mine was 20 stitches, so I chained 23, and worked dcs in rows. Make sure you measure your back piece so that it fits promptly before sewing it to the front.

Assembly:
You have to sew the front and back piece together now. I used sc in order to create a border effect. You may use any method you like e.g. sl.st or even whipstitch them together. Before closing add some fiberfill. Upon doing that add a button to the center to give it a cushionlike effect! That's it! Enjoy your pincushion!:)
P.S. It can also be used as a sachet for your closet if you add a herb potpourri!
