In the Yarn Garden CAL - Part 4, rounds 27 - 35



This is part 4 of In the Yarn Garden CAL. Lets work towards a square :)

Some of you might start to worry about the size of your finished cushion cover? In the last part (part 6 which is released 1:st of August) I will give you some tips on what to do if your cushion cover is to small or big and does not fit the size of a standard inner cushion.

But let's go on with part 4 now :)
