Anyway, I'm back! Feeling great and eager to make up for lost time with some fun projects that I hope to share here with you all.
birdies and all the color would be perfect with these pillows.
So here is a quick simple pattern:
crochet hook size doesn't really matter nor does any sort of gauge...I just kept measuring my work next to my pillow form and when the sizes matched up I was done.
Basically this is a granny square.
ch 4, join together with a sl st to form a loop
6 dc in loop, join to first dc and ch 3 (counts at dc)
2dc in same loop, ch 2, 3 dc in same loop (1 corner made)
dc in next 2 dc, 3 dc in next dc, ch 2, 3 dc in same loop, cont. around 2 more times, you should now have 4 corners finished, join in top of ch 3.
sl st to corner, change color, ch 3 and form corner in the same way as previous, dc in each dc until the next corner, form corner (3dc,ch2,3dc).
Continue in the pattern, changing color as you wish until the desired size is reached.
When the last corner is joined turn the pillow and begin sc into front loop only for the back. sl st when you reach the other side and turn, continue on down the back of the pillow changing colors as you wish and joining the sides with sl st.
I went about 3/4 of the way down the pillow and then finished off, turned the pillow around and started on the other side going about half way so that the flaps overlap but I could remove the pillow and wash the cover as needed (gotta love super wash baby ull).
I got a little fancy on the last row, doing sc, hdc, 2dc, hdc, sc just to give it a finished look.
Hope this little pattern makes sense and if you give it a try I'd love to see the end result:)
