Have I mentioned that I love, love, love throw pillows? I do. It’s such an easy way to change up the feeling of a room and I am particularly loving this crochet throw pillow pattern by Kirsten Ballering.
The base is crochet in cray yarn and then a chain stitch grid is sewn on top. It’s a lovely way to use up odds and ends of beautiful hand dyed yarns.
Let’s talk about choosing a yarn for this project. It’s written for sport weight, which depending on where you live can sometimes be tough to come by. Which is why I’ve found this beautiful natural alpaca yarn that would just be absolutely lovely:
and oh my look at this incredible set of 8 sport weight mini-skeins in delicious Easter egg colors
Pretty soon I’m going to have more throw pillows on my bed than there is bed. And that suits me just fine.
To make this pillow you will need:
- Size G crochet hook
- 700 yards sport weight yarn in grey (like this undyed alpaca)
- Small amounts of yarn in contrasting colors for the overlay (like this 8 skein set of mini skeins)
