Little Nana Square cushion...

This cushion is a order for a lady in town...
I really love these little squares...they make the colours the focus...
and in pure wool it is so soft...

Little Nana Square cushion...


It wasn't too difficult to do these squares...
Just a couple of rows of tr(dc)'s and a outer row of dc(sc)
and hand stitched them together
with a simple whip stitch...


 I really shouldn't say this cushion is "little" thou...
It is about 45cm square...
Nice and Big...
I would look amazing on a plain couch
a real statement piece...

I have called this a Nana Square as I think it would be easily confused with
it's Granny Square counterpart...

The perfect portable project! Lovely and colorful also Thank you for sharing. I do you keep all these project rolling in? Do you crochet really fast?

It looks very pretty! And I love the settings in that photo! I don't think I have the patience to make all those small squares, though!

Thank you Barbara for your question...
The back is made up of 9 larger squares.
5 rows in total with a border of dc(sc) around each...
and whip stitched together...

This cushion is fab!! And what a great way of using up yarn leftovers. I have just started to learn crochet and would love to get started on a project involving little squares. This could be perfect.

You're right about the square design providing an emphasis on the lovely colors - from a distance, this looks like it's a quilted pillow! In fact, the layout sort of reminds me of "Elmer the Patchwork Elephant."

Beautiful crochet work, as always!!

What an awesome pillow! And how did you do the edging? Love it as well. :)

Michelle said...

Dear Voie de vie...
I did a very simple edge of dc(sc) and added a picot every 6 dc(sc) or so...
I hope this helps...

p.s...thank you everyone for your sweet comments!!!
