MAKING A THROW
Make it as big as you require changing colour every round
I first did a wrap cushion way back in 2012 and have made several versions since.
One of the first i made in 2012 to go over a striped cushion cover to create a double pattern. Make the giant granny slightly smaller than required so it opes at the sides and join at the centre only
in a SOLID GRANNY SQUARE
A block stitch version from 2013
Wrap cushion cover from lots of granny squares...
Basically its just a big Granny square, or lots of smaller square wrapped around a cushion....granny shells, solid dc, or a block stitch square.
Make it big enough to wrap around the cushion you want to cover
One I did for Book 1: Granny Squares with a vintage vibe, that never made the book.
