MY MAN just loves his mitred squares cushion,

which I made especially for him some time ago, that he has asked for another, only this time he has requested a circular cushion.  

So, I came up with this design and the result is a great robust cushion cover.  Sturdy enough for heavy duty wear and tear, and  Simply Perfect for the man in my life, and will be perfect for the man in your life too, no matter what age!

Change colour whenever you want, make it whatever size you need. Join both sides by crocheting all the way around or leave a section open for a removable cover and add buttons.  

This is a really easy pattern, you can do it with your eyes closed, well nearly!  Very, very easy, peasy!
