Granny squares cushion

This eye-catching mini cushion is a fantastic way to practise treble stitches that crochet up to create much-loved granny squares. Corinne Bradd has used the different coloured yarns in your kit to build up the design and has sewn it over a simple fabric cover, using a little toy stuffing to fill. It really couldn’t be simpler! This pattern makes one big granny square, however, if you have some additional yarn to use up, you could create several smaller squares and join them together to make the front of a larger cushion.
