crochet cushion with an elongated shape

welcome! good to see you!

no unfinished projects to show you today but i have finished the cushion cover made of 42 ‘another squares’. it has an unusual elongated shape, but i wanted something different than the typical square cushions. it is lying on my couch and is pleasant support in the back and i am quite satisfied with the end result.

here are some pictures, hope you like the cushion too!?

if you like, you can find the pattern for the squares here. the yarn i use is scheepjes ‘softfun’ and crochet hook size 4.00 mm. if you like to see beautiful projects, you might like to take a look here: ginny’s yarn along at small things

thanks for visiting!

work in progress: two crochet projects

thanks for stopping by, hope all is well with you!!

last week i worked on a new yellow bag, a summer bag.work in progress crochet summer bag by elisabeth andrée

for the bottom i started with the first two rows of the pattern for the rectangular squares i only made it a tiny longer. then it is all half double crochets with only a few double crochets.

the bag is far from finished, i’m now working on the details.wip bottom of crochet summer bag by elisabeth andrée

yesterday evening i crocheted a few rows to one side of the cushion cover, so that project i can finish soon.

crochet projects: 2 done and 2 in the works

hello, good to see you!

.

lilac cowl

a small and fun project and easy to make (to my opinion).

i used one ball of 100 gram saskia yarn with hook size 4.5 mm and worked a little loosely.

for a basic ‘how to make’ you can use this explanation for the curly bracelet. for this lilac cowl i made 151 chains per curl and made all single crochets.

cat bed

for the cat of my cousin who loves to sleep on soft and crochet things, i made a cat bed that measures about 50 x 50 cm and about 10 cm high. it is a little wobbly and feels really soft and comfortable (inside a children’s comforter which is easily washable) so i hope the cat will love to relax on it.

.

cushion cover

both sides of the cushion cover made of ‘another squares’ are done. all the squares are sewn together, i have crocheted one row around and fasten off the yarn …. and i think i measured something wrong because the sides are to small for the pillow, so i need to crochet more rows around them. no problem.

if you like, you can find the pattern for the squares here. the yarn i use is scheepjes ‘softfun’ and crochet hook size 4.00 mm.

spiders

some evenings were a little cold but for me those evenings were a good opportunity to work on my orange spider blanket.work in progress orange spider blanket by elisabeth andrée

crochet rectangular grannies cushion cover

thanks for stopping by!

in a previous post i wrote that for quite some time i was looking for a pattern for rectangular grannies. there are several (free) patterns available, but when i saw the diagram of this pattern i made my choice. the pattern is written and it has diagrams. i made only a small adjustment, instead of 1 chain spaces in the corners, i make 2 chain spaces. 

this is the direct link to the pdf.

rectangular crochet squares by elisabeth andrée
materials

i used a mix of cotton yarns and hook size 3.5 mm.

  1. scheepjes larra which is a mercerized cotton – colors 7398 pistache green (only for the centers), 7421 petrol and 7414 bright green 
  2. phil coton 3 – color 58 jade (light aqua blue)
  3. and smc catania – color 100 which is the soft yellow.
bright

the hues on the photos are not exactly the way they are in real live. the cushion cover has a somewhat busy look, but not as bright as you see on the pictures.

for the future

it was a fun project to do and for sure i will crochet more rectangular grannies in the future and make them with a different kind of yarn and/or colors.

wish you a wonderful weekend!
until next time!
