c2c cushion cover

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 :)

 Check out Make and Do Crew's great designs and good instructions for c2c crochet from here.

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.

 Oh, I just love these colors. 
The yarn is 100% acrylic, Stylecraft Special DK. The hook size was 3.5 mm.

I made two pieces and sewed on the seams. The inner cushion is from Ikea, size 50x50 (although crochet work size is  40x40). The pillow became plump :)

The pillow fits perfectly to the blanket and the buntings <3

And yes, it´s not a challenging technique at all. It´s really nice and fast technique.
All the things you can do with this technique ....!

Ps. I'll also tell you about this pillow on my vlog, episode 6 (click here)
