Now here is something I didn’t think I would ever be making, a crocheted sofa arm cover, that perfectly fits a sofa.
Where to begin with this project. I decided to go a little retro here, and used the good old granny square again.
Well I could change the size pretty quickly to make sure it has a nice snug fit – thats why – just increase or decrease the number of rounds you are doing.

So I plodded on with granny squares, just measuring them against the size of the arm, and stopping with them being a little too small to ensure a snug fit.
In this case, I needed squares of 6 rounds each.
How do you do your granny squares?? I do a chain 4 to start, followed by chain 2 in the corners, and chain 1 on the side, with the usual 3 US double crochet/ UK treble crochets in the corners.
How I made my Crochet Sofa Arm Cover
I made a 7 plain grey squares, then decided it needed a bit of colour!
I dug into my ever growing stash and found some blues that I quite liked.
So rounds 1 and 2 made in blue for 3 squares.
Then to sew/ crochet them together, I used Slip Stitching (SS) with the Back Loop Only (BLO) to give a flat look.
You need to sew them together in the following way.? What I forgot to add on the diagram, is the blue squares are the last vertical line to the right!
Then, a bit more colour needed, so I did one row of US single / UK double crochet around the whole edge in the light blue followed by a row of HDC/ HTr in the darker blue, and hey presto…….
One very retro sofa arm cover.
