Granny “Circle” Seat Cover Pattern

I wrote this pattern as a follow-up to this Idea post.  I was right in that both the pattern and the project itself worked up very quickly.  I made this holding 2 strands of yarn so it would be extra cushiony.  I also added four ties so that it could be secured to your 4-leg stool or chair. These are worked as part of the last round – not attached separately, making them even more secure.

Materials:

  • At least 2 colors worsted weight yarn – 2 skeins each
  • Size K Crochet Hook

Gauge: Not critical.

Pattern Notes:

  • This pattern is worked in rounds holding 2 strands of yarn together.
  • This piece must be blocked upon completion in order for your seat covers to lay flat.

Pattern Stitches:

  • Beginning Cluster (Beg Cl) – Ch 2, [Yo, insert hook in st or sp indicated and pull up a lp, yo and draw through 2 lps on hook] twice, yo and draw through all 3  lps on hook.  Beg Cl made.
  • Cluster – [Yo, insert hook in st or sp indicated and pull up a lp, yo and draw through 2 lps on hook] 3 times, yo and draw through all 4 lps on hook. Cluster made.
  • Ties: (Uses the next two stitches.) *Ch 20, sl st in second chain  from hook and in each back to last sc, sc in next sc, repeat from * once more for second tie.

Round 1: Ch 4, join with sl st in first ch to form a ring.  In ring: Work [Beg Cl, ch 2,] work [Cluster, ch 2] 4 times, join with sl st in Beg Cl, finish off. (5 clusters and ch 2 sps.)

Round 2: Join next color with sl st in any ch 2 sp, work [Beg Cl, ch 2] in same sp, work Cluster in same sp, ch 2, work [cluster, ch 2, cluster, ch 2] in next ch 2 sp and in each around, join with sl st in Beg Cl, finish off. (10 clusters and ch 2 sps.)

(30 clusters and ch 2 sps.)

Round 7: Join next color in any ch 2 sp, [ch 1, 2 sc in same sp], work [sc in next cluster, 2 sc in next ch 2 sp] around, join with sl st in Beg Cl, finish off.  (135 sc.)
