Row 1 us­ing 5mm cro­chet hook and Yarn D, join all pieces by work­ing a dc into each st, work­ing through all lay­ers around the edge of the cush­ion. Join with a ss into first dc. Don’t turn Row 2 ch1 (not counted as st), work in crab st to end. Join with a ss into first ch and fas­ten off. Weave in ends and sew on the but­tons, us­ing the but­ton­holes as a guide to place­ment.

Fin­ish­ing

Us­ing the pom pom maker and left­over yarn, make four pom poms, leav­ing a long tail for sewing. Sew a pom pom to each cush­ion cor­ner, then in­sert the cush­ion pad.
