whoa, an FO!

Hey! I finished one of my crochet projects!

I’ve had a sad, naked couch cushion for ages (well, not that naked – I put a bed pillowcase on it) and it was finally time to do something about it. I really love how this turned out, and I’ve always wanted to make more housewaresy stuff with my vast collection of yarn.

The front is a Wool-eater square, while the back is a granny square.

Let me tell you, the granny square side was WAY faster than the Wool-eater side – all those extra loops in the Wool-eater really slow me down. The yarn is all Cascade 220, 2 skeins of the teal and little scrap half-or-third skeins of the yellows.

I single crocheted the two sides together along three of the sides, holding the two pieces wrong sides together. For the last side, the opening, I single crocheted along the front and back separately, and added some chains to close it up.

Super fun!

    It looks awesome. I love how you can have two separate looks depending on how you feel.

    Adorable! And smart, too, of you to make the cover removable, just in case there is a coffee/grownup beverage/baby in the house accident!

    Very cute! What a great idea for revving up the looks of a couch/chair/bed and it can be changed as you like. That’s my idea of decorating… easy and quick changes for the season, holidays, etc.
