Crocheted Cushion Cover. . .

It's a bit lumpy, but I'm fairly happy with this crocheted pillow that I finished for my Mum just before our trip to Toronto (I think it was still a wee bit damp in the suitcase from blocking). Granny squares are definitely addictive and fun especially in thicker yarns.  I used various shades of blue and some cream Cascade 220 in my stash.  I especially like the zig-zagging that forms when you join up the squares using this method from Carina's Craftblog

Oooh, I made quite a lot of mistakes in the back doing various rows of double and treble crochet stitches. My tension wasn't great and I missed quite a few stitches, but hey, you can only display one side of a pillow at a time.
