Border, Join and Back of Fall in New England Cushion

The Fall in New England Cushion Crochet Along  is in its final week, where all we have left to do is join the beautiful textured squares and make the back part of the cushion cover. I hope you have enjoyed working on this crochet pillow cover, just as much I did in designing it and that you have a wonderful Autumn.

Pattern notes

The pattern is written using UK terminology, for a conversion chart to US terminology click this link.

The border is worked in the round. You do not need to turn your work after each row and you continue working in the same direction as before.

The backs are worked back and forth in rows. You should turn at the end of each row.

[Stitches written in brackets like this are all worked into the same stitch.]

For the first stitch on each row: Crochet 1 chain to move up to the next round if the round starts with double crochet. Crochet 2 chains if the round starts with a half treble crochet, and crochet 3 chains if the round starts with a treble crochet. These chains count as the first stitch in the row.

Instructions
Join

Arrange the squares in the order that you like. Join two of the squares together. To do so, hold the two squares together with the wrong sides facing each other. Then slip stich with Off White through the loops of each square that are held closest together. When you have crocheted in this manner, a neat ridge will be formed between the squares, making an attractive frame.

Repeat the above with the two remaining squares. Then crochet the two blocks of two squares together using the same method. Fasten off and weave in your ends.

Assembly

With the wrong sides facing outwards crochet the front and back piece 1 together. Turn so that the right sides are now facing out. Then repeat the process with back piece 2 bearing in mind that back piece 2 will overlap back piece 1.

Now insert the cushion and position the buttons on back piece 1 so that they correspond to where the cushion holes are in back piece 2. Sew the buttons into place.
