Crochet Granny Garden Flower Cushion

I had my last crochet class yesterday… and now I feel a bit sad.

It was so lovely to indulge in a morning’s crochet with a fab group of ladies. We would chat, make mistakes, laugh at each other and talk about Dachshunds (of all things)!

Most of all, I am completely in love with crochet.

In. Love. With. It.

I love the bright colours, the endless things that you can make and the look of amazement on Mr DF’s face when I present him with another cushion (I obviously ignore the eye-rolls)!!

Currently, I’m working on a ‘granny garden flower cushion’ and have used this amazing pattern from Attic24. I wanted it to fit a 46cm x 46cm cushion pad so this meant completing 4 ’rounds’ of each the granny squares, joining as I went, until I had 9 squares in total. Although I am using Stylecraft Special Chunky yarn, I was still a bit far away from my 46cm target, so I finished the sides off with a border consisting of 2 rounds of half trebles and 1 round of double crochet.

See…?

…a happy, cheerful, bouncy, robust cushion front!

All I now need to do is start on the other side!

Have a great day…
