I've started making the squares for my latest cushion cover. Yes, I've finished my Aran cardigan, pictures to follow, so I'm allowed to start something new. For the last cushion cover, I used sunburst granny squares but I wanted something different for this one. So I chose the squares from the Grandma's knickknacks blanket by Laurel Runnels. It's a free pattern, check it out on Ravelry, here.
I had already chosen the six colours I wanted to use. Five colours would be used for the central medallions and the sixth for the borders.
Here are the five colour-ways I will be using for the medallions.
I'm using mint for the borders.
And here's the first completed square.
As the cushion is rather a large one, I think I'm going to need eighty one squares for a 9 x 9 cushion cover. Alternatively I might crochet another round of mint to the existing square to make it larger - I'll see how things progress.
Well, I'd better get on, one down, eighty squares to go!
