wip crochet blanket and giant cushion cover

welcome to another wip blogpost!


still working on my soft ribbing blanket. maybe a silly thing to say but i am in love with the blanket, because of the way it looks, its colors and softness. i bought some extra balls of yarn, because i was a little worried that i did not have a sufficient amount. it will take a while before this blanket is finished.

98 squares

nevertheless, i started a new project: a giant cushion cover. below you see a cotton pillowcase that measures 70 x 70 cm, bought in a sale a while ago for only a few euros.

cushion 70 x 70 cm

in it is folded an old duvet cover of about 2 x 2 meters, clean but damaged and it was really time to make a crochet cushion cover to make it a better looking item for mine or someone else’s interior.

49 squares for each side, that is the number of squares i need to make.

the pattern for the square is very basic and if you visit the app store you can download the free app:

simply crochet granny square a week

among other patterns you can find there ‘granny doris‘, which is similar to the ones you see on my pictures.

the patterns in the app are written in british english and american english terms and there is also a diagram. sounds great, doesn’t it?! if you like to have more info about the app, please visit the app store.



since i am not a great lover of brown (except for trees and animals) i almost never work with the color. but this brown variegated stylecraft yarn is lovely, the name is sandstone. for the edges i use stylecraft in different colors and i work with crochet hook size 4.5 mm. 


how about your work in progress? maybe we will meet on instagram and/or ginny’s yarn along at small things


wish you a wonderful wednesday!
