I have been trying to redo the piano chair cover (here’s my previous one done a few years ago) using Granny Rectangle, and finally I found out how to do so from Crochet Again’s post: A Better Granny Rectangle.
I used Caron Cakes Yarn that I got from Michael’s and 4.5 mm crochet hook.
In the 6th chain from the hook, make 3 double crochet. Skip 2 chains, and then make 3 double crochet in the next chain. Continue across, when you reach the last chain, make 1 double crochet, and then chain 3 (count as 1 double crochet).
Insert your hook (see picture below) into the gap between the last 3 double crochet clusters and the last double crochet you made the 3 chains on top of, and make (in this gap): 2 double crochet, chain 3, 3 double, chain 3, 3 double crochet.
You have just made 2 corners:
Then make 3 double crochet in each gap in between the 3 double crochet clusters
When you reach the end (see picture below), insert your hook in where the arrow pointed,
and make 2 corners there: 3 double crochet, chain 3, 3 double crochet, chain 3, 3 double crochet. And then you again make 3 double crochet in each gap in between the 3 double crochet clusters.
Until you reach the end, slip stitch into the top of the beginning chain 3.
I want to have the clusters tighter together, so I modified the pattern a little bit. Instead of making 3 chains for the corners, I only make 1 chain in between the 3 double crochets.
So once you reach the length & width of desire, you can stop making corners and just make 3 double crochet across in between the clusters. Once you reach the height of desire, you can just fasten off. Here’s the finished project (20″ x 14″ x 3″):
