The cover is made in 2 pieces which are then sewn together while tied onto the frame and then the bottom edge of the crochet work is stitched to the frame to give an upholstered look. A separate cushion is then made for the seat.

Assembly Use a lacing stitch to stitch all pieces together. Use a whip stitch to stitch chair cover to chair frame.
Use a contrasting color of yarn to tie certain spots of the crochet pieces to the chair frame to keep them in place as follows. Pick up front piece of work and tie rows 26 of front to back of chair frame to keep them in place.
Pull chair front down to front of frame and tie the bottom corners of row 1 in place at bottom front of chair frame. You might want to tie a piece of yarn to the front top corners of arms to help keep them in place.
Tie the upper right and left corners of inside chair to upper right and left corners of frame.
Tie top of from piece to back edge of top of chair frame so the gussett is covering the top of the chair. Tie the bottom corners of the gussett to the corner where the arms meet the upper sides.
Tie the back piece to the frame at each corner.
With same color as you used for chair cover, start lacing up the seams where they come together. Start with the inside seams where the arm tops meet the inside arms and the front inside seams of the arms. Then after that is done, lace the outside arm seams, the upper back seam and the other outside arm seam. After you are all done with the upper seams, stitch the bottom edge to the chair frame using a whip stitch. Remove all contrasting yarn you used to tie pieces in place.
NOTE: I didn't use contrasting yarn and I didn't tie all points I indicated in place but I really should have. It would have been a lot easier.Congratulations! You are done with the main chair!

RND 2-4: Sc in each sc across. Ch1, turn. At the end of row 4. Fasten off leaving a long end for stitching cushion closed. Weave other end into back of work.
Use a lacing stitch to close the cushion. With yarn needle & long end, stitch 4 rows of gussett to rows 11, 12, 13 and 14 to form a box end. Turn the corner and stitch each sc to rows 15-24 to the corner. Stitch next 11 sc of gusset to the 11 sc across row 24 to the next corner. Turn the corner and stitch each sc to rows 24 -15 back to other end of gussett. Before you complete this side though, stuff with polyester fiberfill, then stitch the rest of this side closed and stitch the end of the gusset to the next 4 rows. Weave ends into work.
