{Granny Square Pillow Progress}

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!:)

  2. Looks awesome! I like the colors :) I have similar cushion color too, but made it with wagon wheel squares. A good point is that you can use both sides this cover! I look forward to see finished item!

  3. Your pillow will become very beautiful. As far as I'm concerned the blu colour is too dark but I'm sure it will fit very well to your home. ^^ And making grannies needs always a lot of time. Can't wait to see it when it is finished <3
