a crafty port of call
It started with a square – which became FOUR!
Then the four became one.
So now what do I do? Make a pillow!
I overchained, (i did a chain 60 1 chturn, SC across for 59 ) not taking into consideration the stretchability factor.
My 12 inch pillow turned into a 16 x 16 inch pillow.
I am fairly happy with the results. I know where I made my mistakes and need to focus more on correct sizing. I also liked playing with the colors. I usually stick to single colors or working all in neutrals.
Have you ever covered a pillow in knit or crochet? How did it turn out? What things did you learn from it?
