"Crochet Pattern Pillow"

This crochet pattern pillow is an easy project to pick up whenever time allows.

It is worked in synthetic yarn so washes very well again and again.

The color tones in my crochet pattern pillow consist of 4 shades increasing in intensity from white to the darkest shade of blue.

It consists of 2 large granny square afghan motifs [back and front alike].

The corners are finished with tassels.

Fringing can also be used all around the edge of the cushion, or a decorative crochet edge is another option.

The pillow is made from pale blue taffeta and stuffed with foam fill. The taffeta can be seen in the spaces between the groups of stitches on the granny square afghan motifs.

Another option is to purchase a cushion insert and make the cover to fit your crochet pattern pillow.
