Cushion: Square Deal
Square Deal represents the smallest number of different squares which can be fitted together to make a larger square.
This arrangement was discovered in 1978 by A J W Duijvestijn. Since 1939 it had been thought that 55 was the smallest number.
The cushion in the photo was made with DK yarn. You could use other yarns though this might change the overall size.
Buy the cushion pattern on its own or in 12 Pillows of Wisdom - a book of 12 cushion patterns. We also have an afghan version of Square Deal.
