Selection of new cushions for Christmas, inspired from a motif in my Book Granny Squares 1

We needed some new cushion covers for the lounge I had some cream and pale grey  

 and i wanted to use them with a touch of gold to match the new sofa throws

Inspired by the motif in my first book Granny Squares

But with some changes, I used
with my favourite middle this time the finger wrap...so easy and no kno and no ends to deal with...some one at one of the shows commented it looks almost like an embroidered centre.

Patons woll blend Aran weight and 6mm hook so I only needed 9squares for each side
The grey is a bit scratchy but perfect for cushions that need to take some use.
Finger wrap to start
then the flower from the book then finish with a granny shell round

The Ivory cushion is another Aran but I'm not sure of the brand
used a 5mm hook for this one so i needed 16 motifs per side

The Bobble side is a basic circle cushion with 3 and 4 rounds of bobble stitches added
 and the flower side is this pattern...here
 Loving the touch of gold and the two colour striped band

Wanted 2 Ivory and 2 grey but run out of time now to do another ivory.....next year i will make another



  1. Wonderful, and very wintry colours too! : )

    1. Hi Valentina, thanks I love pale grey and Ivory as basic neutrals and black aswell not really a brown beige person these day and it's good to work in one or two colours for a change instead of all the glorious colour I usually work with lol
