Pretty Granny Square Cushion 2020

The plain granny square is probably one of the oldest and most well-known crochet patterns. It’s a lovely basic pattern that can be used in many ways. It’s the first time that I have used it for a granny square cushion (after all those years of crochet…).

I am totally aware that this pattern can found all over the Internet as well as in many crochet books. I am not going to pretend that I have re-invented the wheel here.

What I would like to show you with this pattern is the way that I make them and how to turn nine of them into a colourful cushion with a nice edging and a matching closure at the back.

In order to make this granny square cushion, you first make nine basic granny squares, each consisting of four rounds. When you’ve completed all of you squares, you will join them when adding the fifth round. You end up with a large, square piece of crochet. The edging will be made around this piece in seven rounds. So comming a best Pretty Granny Square Cushion 2020.


Using your fabric and a sewing machine, you make a cushion cover in the most simple way: fold the short ends towards the middle of the fabric and let them overlap. Close the side-seams and sew on your piece of crochet. I used my sewing machine to sew it on, but you can do it by hand if you’re more comfortable with that.

The backside closure is made separately. It’s a small piece of crochet roughly as wide as your finished cushion is. Sew it onto the top flap of the cushion over and sew on the buttons.

Finished Measurements

The cushion that I have made measures approximately 47 x 47 cm.


Gauge is not critical for this pattern.

Stitch Library

For this pattern the following stitches are used:

Chain stitch, slip stitch, single crochet (UK: double crochet), double crochet (UK: treble crochet). I like to start my work with a foundation double crochet (fdc) rather than starting with a number of chains. It makes counting your stitches a lot easier and the foundation double crochet gives you a more stretchy base. The foundation double crochet replaces round 1, so after finishing it you start immediately with row 2.
