This cushion cover started out in my mind as a beautiful blanket.
However after making only 4 motives I decided it would lose all its features over a much large span, a full blanket size.
I decided to change it into a cushion cover and give it to my Mother-in-law as a gift.
I have never used this colour scheme before but I am very happy with the overall beauty of how they come together.
Free Pattern Simple 10-Petal Afghan Square By Joyce D. Lewis there is no pattern for the back panel It is a standard granny square pattern but there are no chains between sets of 3 DC.
The Back: By turning your work each row it creates a block that appears to have no front or back side to it. It also stops your work from 'twisting' as it gets bigger.
The front: Joined with single crochet with back sides together to create a ridge on the front side.
