Daisy Granny Squares:

Join-As-You-Go:

Use the joining color (light gray) to join your granny squares using the join-as-you-go technique. When you finish joining your granny squares, crochet around the last three sides of the pillow side. Use a seamless join and weave in your ends.

If you’re not familiar with this method, or need a refresher, check out my photo-tutorial here.

Back of the Pillow

You can make the back the same as the front (by joining 16 granny squares in a 4×4 pattern), you could make a solid single crochet backing, or I chose to make the back a large granny square. Mine uses all four colors, but a solid granny square would also look cute.

I’ve included the basic granny square pattern below, but I have a more detailed photo-tutorial for granny squares here.

Ch 4 and join with a sl st.
Round 1: Ch 2 (counts as first dc), 2 dc into the center of the ring. *Ch 1, 3 dc into the center of the ring.* Repeat the * section two more times, then join to the first dc (NOT the chain) with a sl st.

Round 2: Ch 2, turn. 2 dc into space below ch, ch 1, 3 dc into space. This will create your first of four corners. Below next chain (in the gap between the 3 dc clusters) crochet *3 dc, ch 1, 3 dc* (repeat * section 2 more times, for a total of four corners). Connect to the first dc with a sl st.

Round 3: Ch 2, turn. 2 dc into space below ch. In the corner space, 3 dc, ch 1, 3 dc (for your first corner). *3 dc in the next space, in the corner 3 dc, ch 1, 3dc* repeat * section 2 more times. Connect to first dc with a sl st.

Round 4 – 20: Continue the granny square pattern, with 3 dc in each space and 3 dc, ch 1, 3 dc in the corners. Change colors as desired.

Line up the front and the back of the pillow, right sides facing out. Join your border color yarn (I used light gray) and ch 1. Sc all the way around the pillow, with 3 sc in each corner.

When you reach the final side, insert the 20 x 20 pillow form (I used part of a body pillow I hacked into 3 pieces) and continue to sc around. Connect to the first sc with a sl st or an invisible join. Trim yarn and weave in ends.

That’s it!
