I 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.
