THE YARN


To make this crochet ottoman I decided to use the amazing Wool Ease yarn from Lion Brand Yarn

It’s for sure become my favorite and these are some other patterns that uses this yarn:  Your Afternoon Walk Cardigan,  Your Sunrise Socks, Spikes and Stripes Pillow, Cold Day Cowl & Granny Square Bag.

 

So if you haven’t tried Wool Ease before, isn’t this great proof that I really LOVE this yarn?

A FUN GRANNY SQUARE CROCHET PATTERN


The granny square crochet ottoman is made up of multiple granny squares & a top and bottom that is crocheted separately.

In the end it’s all seamed together to create a beautiful crochet footstool.

To fill this crochet ottoman you have choices. The one pictured was filled with an old duvet that isn’t used anymore, which made for quite a soft ottoman.

However, you can also fill it more, for a harder finish. 

The whole idea is that you can find unused blankets, duvets ect. from around the house & repurpose it.

HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO CROCHET THAT?


How long it takes to crochet something varies depending on your skill & how fast you crochet. But that isn’t a helpful answer is it?

Well, I’ve developed a yarn calculator to help you get the answer to this question.

It will help you calculate exactly how much time you’ll spend crocheting a project.

All you need to know is how much yarn you will use on the project in either meters, yards or skeins. Then crochet your test square & time it.

Calculate how long it takes to crochet that.
