This cushion cover is the first work I have done with the c2c technique. c2c stands for corner to corner crochet (also known as pixel crochet). However, I have admired for a long time projects made with this technique, like pillows, blankets and even clothes, but thought that it is somehow a challenging technique :)

I had planned to do couple of crocheted pillows for our new summer terrace, so it was time to try this technique. I had some left over yarns from The Sweet Pea Blanket (read more here) that I made for the terrace so they ended up on this pillow.
