Free Crochet Patterns: Circles & Squares Cushion Covers

free crochet pattern cushion covers round square rectangular granny square
Thank you so much for your enthusiastic reception of the cushion covers! I know some of you have already bought the yarn :-) so here are the patterns for my Circles & Squares designs! I'll start with the pattern for the granny square and then explain how to join them to make a cushion cover. I made a small rectangular one but you can of course also make a large square in whatever size you prefer.
After that you'll find the pattern for the large circle with joining instructions.

The patterns are written in US crochet terms but below you'll also find a table with the UK equivalents. The patterns are available in Dutch too.

Joining

Place the individual squares with right sides together and join with sc in each stitch. Join as many squares as needed to acquire size of cushion pad. If the size of the joined squares is a little too small compared to the inner cushion just work rounds of sc around until size is obtained. For my rectangular cover I worked 1 round of sc all around and at the sides an additional 4 rows of sc.

Placing the 2 panels wrong sides together, join with 1sc in each sc all around.
