Finished Pillow Size: Approximately 12″ x 12″
Here’s what you’re going to need:
2 skeins of Kartopu ALPACA POLO yarn in Red
6mm Addi Bamboo crochet hook
Large Eye Tapestry Needle (for sewing top & weaving in ends)
A bunch of yarn scraps OR polly-fill for stuffing the pillow.
ch = chain
st = stitch
sc = single crochet
bl = back loop
Directions: (Make 2)
Row 1: Put 1 sc in the 2nd ch from hook, and in each ch across.
Row 2: Ch 1, turn work.
Put 1 sc in the 1st st from previous row.
Next, put 1 sc in the bl of the next st, and every st across, until you have 1 st left.
Put 1 regular sc into the last st of the row.
Rows 3-46 : Repeat row 2.
Cut yarn, leaving an extra long tail to sew up pillow. Repeat steps to make 1 more side for the pillow.
Finishing: (sewing up the pillow) Using the long tails of yarn threaded through the tapestry needle, sew the 2 sides of the pillow together, until you have just 1/2 of the last side left unsewn.
Then, stuff the pillow until it’s completely full of yarn scarps (or poly-fill stuffing), and then continue to sew the entire pillow closed.
Weave in all ends. All finished! 🙂
