Note: This pattern has not been tested so these amounts are approximate.
To make sure you have enough yarn make squares until you have used up a whole ball of yarn and use this number to work out how many balls you’ll need to complete your cushion.

45 squares in Blue and 55 Purple.

Sew them together following the diagram, sewing the edge knots on adjacent squares to each other and leaving the free loops on the front of your work. (white squares = blue, mauve = purple)
