Crocheted Ottoman Cover

24 Jul

IMG_3064I did it!  I taught myself to crochet!  Finally!  After years of saying I wanted to learn, I finally took the time to sit down and watch a few videos and now I’m crocheting.  Yay!  I made this ottoman slip cover, for my yarn-bombed craft room.  I made the top with nine granny squares, stitched together with the whip stitch.  Then I did one row of single crochet around the edge of all 9 granny squares.  Then I double crocheted in alternating colors.   I’m really happy with how it looks and I know I’ll be trying to make more crocheted projects in the future.

I purchased this used ottoman at a resale shop for $15 and painted the legs a dark brown to match my chair.  Below are some before, during and after pictures.
