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

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.

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!
