I did it! I crocheted a granny square cushion and I love it *jumps for joy*.
I’ve wanted to learn to crochet for the longest time and finally made it a New Year’s resolution this year. I started learning back in February, making the individual granny squares first, before slip stitching together and then making the giant square for the back and slip stitching this to the front.
Yes, it has taken about five months (although about a month of that was wasted when I kept forgetting to buy a cushion pad) but it’s been so worth it and plans are already afoot for (hopefully quicker) cushion number two.
The small squares are made from this pattern from ravelry and the giant back square is thanks to a great how-to by the lovely Sam of Pattern Piper blog. All the wool is Robin Double Knit.
ps. Despite my fear that by learning how to crochet I’d forget how to knit, I have since tried knitting again and, so far, haven’t forgotten how!
