Creating the Sunburst Granny Square

Round One:

Create a slip knot and chain 5. Connect the first and last chain with a slip stitch, forming a circle. Create a chain of 3 (counts as a double crochet). Add 15 double crochets into the circle (a total of 16 double crochets, including the chain-3).

Round Two:

Start with a new color yarn in any double crochet stitch of the round one. Begin with two chain stitches, then create 16 puff stitches (yarn over, pull up loops 3 times, and lock with a chain stitch) in each double crochet of round one.

Round Three:

Using a new color yarn in a chain 1 space, start with two chain stitches, three half-done double crochets in the same chain 1 space, yarn over and pull through all the loops plus 2 chain stitches. Repeat the same for all chain 1 spaces.

Round Four:

Make a corner with another color yarn attached in any chain 2 space (3 triple crochet, chain 2, 3 triple crochet). Follow it with a ‘side’, which includes a cluster of 3 double crochet, 3 half double crochet and 3 double crochet, respectively. Make another corner at the next chain 2 space. Repeat the side pattern until the end of round four.

Round Five:

Repeat the corner pattern and make three clusters of three double crochet across each side until you reach the next corner. Repeat for all corners and sides until you have a square that covers your cushion completely.

Finishing the Pillow Cover

Use the same colored yarn and begin by slip stitching until you reach the corner. Continue per the fifth round’s pattern until the desired size is met.
Stitch up or sew the sides of the squares together, leaving enough space to insert the pillow.
Make a chain of 50 stitches (or as required) to close up the opening.
Insert the cushion and tie the long chain stitch to hold the cushion in place.
