Cast on 111 sts using 6mm needles.


Repeat these four rows until the work is square.


Touse as a cushion cover, place facedown and fold all four corners to the middle. Sew two seams, slip the cushion pad in, and sew up the final seams, making sure the cables match up.

Touse as a baby blanket, simply wash and block in the usual way. Curling attheedges is expected-to reduce it, add a crochet edging which can easily be removed should you later decide to turn it into a cushion cover.
