It's about time to share a little tutorial on how I've finished my first crochet pillow ever. Perhaps you've already spotted it here and perhaps you also remember that the yarn I used to make it was my inspiration for this year's Fall colors. Anyway, most of my yarn was already in the house (indigo, grey, yellow). To complete the color scheme I shopped my mother's stack for a little dusty pink wool.
My first instinct was to crochet a pattern that I had already made before: the "granny squares" crochet. I think it's a lovely design, vintage and playful at the same time. But the colors had a very contemporary vibe, so I switched to a more modern pattern, inspired from this little beauty available on Etsy. I made the triangles as I went along, without a proper pattern.
So my crochet pillow tutorial is very simple:
1. Choose your yarn in assorted colors.
2. Make the triangles (36 triangles for a small pillow). I just started with a small base and added one more double crochet on each row, until the triangle was ready. Range the triangles in random order.
3. Sew the triangles together and sew a strong textile cover on the back.
4. Stuff the pillow until you're satisfied with its thickness and seal it carefully with an invisible hand stitch.
