{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!

  • yarn in yellow, white and any color you like for the squares
  • 3.00 mm crochet hook 
  • fiberfill
  • Yarn needle
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.

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!
