granny square pillow

granny pillow

I made a new pillow! This was the easiest cover to make. Seriously. I make a granny square with 23 rounds and then tilted it to its side and slip stitched the sides together.

It doesn't go with any of my other pillows but I don't mind at all. I really like the grey/cream/yellow color combo, I think a blanket may eventually get made with these colors. It's on my to-crochet list now. Also, more pillows like this.

  2. Awesome! I really like this a lot! I love the way both sides look. And the simplicity of the design has just put it near the top of my list as holiday-gifts-to-give! Well done!
