I made my first crocheted pillow!
I was cleaning up my wool basket and found a couple of circles in squares grannys I had made a couple of months ago, which were going to become a blanket. Turns out I never got around to that project. I decided to turn them into a pillow, for my friends birthday. It was Wednesday when I had this idea and her party was on Saturday. Nothing like a good challenge!
I continued crocheting the square until it was roughly the same size. All my searching before, had told me that the most popular way of joining the two squares together would be to use single crochet. Which I planned on doing, until I discovered they were slightly different sizes and didn't have the same amount of treble clusters.. there was no point stressing over it, so I single crocheted the two squares together with my own unique method!
I was really happy with how it turned out. I love that it has two distinct personalities, the calm look of the grannys on the front and the bright orange/purple square on the back, depending on your mood!
Do you crochet pillows?
How do you join the pieces together?
Do you use a pattern or prefer to make things up as you go alon?
I am still working away at this blanket too.
I needed a bit of a break from making the same thing over and over again.
Do you finish one project before you start the next?
Do you like to have a few different projects on the go at once?
