Granny Square Pillow Cover: Quick & Easy Crochet Pattern
"If you love the classic granny square stitch, give this pillow cover a try! Granny squares have been used for generations to make blankets, but these basic stitch motifs can be so much more… Like pillow covers! Create your own granny square pillow cover using any yarn, and in any size you choose, with this outline of granny square instructions. Decorating with crochet is something I have a lot of fun doing; I have dream catchers on my walls, baskets for plants and yarn scraps, and table coverings! When I want to redecorate, covering my throw pillows is a quick and easy way I can repurpose what I have, use up yarn stash, and use crochet in my everyday life. This pillow cover begins with a few small granny squares. Each one is created individually, then joined to the last one worked with crochet using the JAYGO (join-as-you-go) method for a gorgeous and seamless look! If you’ve never joined granny squares together with this technique, give it a try; just watch our video to see how you can quickly learn this technique in a few short minutes. An interesting feature in this pattern is that it can be worked in any square size you choose; make your granny squares larger or smaller to create a pillow cover that fits any size pillow you need!"
