This pillow took me about one week longer than I thought it would, because I kept getting bored with the monotonous rows of hdc for the back! But I think the simplicity of the backing really makes the front that much more fun and bright. I love the way they work together.
It’s made from leftover Caron Simply Soft yarn from any number of projects over the years – some is from my very first blanket (fitting, don’t you think?), some if from a baby blanket for a friend, and some is from the multiple wedding blankets I’ve made for dear friends.
I’m determined to clean out this basket of old yarn – It’s meant to be my project basket, but as been sitting as yarn storage for over a year now. I really want my basket back!
I’m thrilled that this pillow came out the way I had envisioned it. I’ve already started on my next pillow (using some squares that were going to be a blanket and will now be a pillow!) and am excited by the possibility of adding these to my repertoire. For now, this one will be up in my shop.
