After posting my granny square motif pattern, I decided to turn it into a new pillow for my sofa. I planned to work with four colors for my pillow, yellow, pink, green and orange but the pillow I had available was a smaller size, so I decided to use only three of the above colors and leave the pink out. I arranged my grannies and joined them using the only in back loops single crochet method. I really like this method as it creates a lovely pop out yarn effect!
Having the squares crocheted together, I wanted to create some kind of an edging to make it a bit more colorful. I used my orange yarn and made a simple double crochet edging found here. For the time being I have only made one round but I'm thinking of completing all three Tracey suggests.
For the back side I decided to make a huge granny square, consisting of fourteen rounds in total, alternating the colors. I chose to make it a bit differently from my first pillow, which I crocheted using a simple double crochet stitch, so that I can practically change the front and back sides of the pillow.
I still need to sew the two parts together and finish the edging which will hopefully be completed within the week! I hope you like my second pillow attempt!:)
