This cushion was a personal challenge! My friend was interested in a granny square with a flower centre to use for an afghan and the only such squares I had seen had the flower sewn on the granny. So I took up the challenge to design one with the flower incorporated in the granny square. Once I made the first one I decided it would look lovely in a cushion using some rustic looking Rowan Fine Tweed. The cushion is 40 cm (16 in) square.
The front of the cushion has 9 flower granny squares using 4 colours for the flower and 3 colours for the background. The reverse is a plain granny square using the 4 flower colours. Included in this pattern are the instructions for the flower granny square, instructions for the backing granny square and details of how to join them together as well as the layout of the colour scheme.

Like many I took a couple of decades off my knitting and crochet whilst my working life took over, but now I am catching up. I always have a hook or pair of needles close by; my fingers do not like to rest. After reacquainting myself with my old hobbies, I progresed to creating my own designs. It seemed a natural progression for me, as did running crochet workshops in the NW of England.
Those who have tried my designs will know that I love creating simple designs that look very effective, after all life doesn't need to be complicated! And I understand that many people like a bit of television or music knitting/crochet, so the easier they are the better it is to enjoy the world around you whilst enjoying your craft.
