Crochet Project: Granny Stripe Pillow

I have been dying to make some crocheted pillows.  I decided for the first one, I would do a granny stripe.  I love it!



Let's get right to the details.

I used the granny stripe tutorial from Lucy of Attic 24 to make the front of the pillow.

Specifically, here is what I used and did:
I used a 16" x 24"pillow form
The yarn I used was Red Heart in Soft White and the colored yarn was all Vanna's Choice.

Materials needed:
• 5.00MM crochet hook & 5.50MM crochet hook
• Worsted weight yarn- Red Heart Super Saver in Soft White and the colors were all Vanna's Choice yarn
• 16" x 24" pillow form
• An old sweater that is big enough to cover one side of your pillow
• Buttons
• Tapestry needle for sewing in the ends 


Gauge:
• Make the ch and row 1, if your work matches up to the short side of your pillow form, keep going.  If not, adjust hook size so that it does match or follow Lucy's granny stripe tutorial to get your own ch number and proceed from there.


Abbreviations:
• ch= chain
• sc= single crochet
• dc= double crochet
• sl st= slip stitch


Finished size:
• 16" x 24"

Start with ch of 50 and follow Lucy's granny stripe tutorial.  Here are the color changes I did:

Row 1-3: Red Heart Super Saver Soft White

Back of Pillow Case:
Once your front is finished, follow Lucy's cushion cover tutorial to back your pillow with a sweater.

   
 
 
I used Vanna's choice yarn in Pea green across the back and the 5.0MM hook.  Then attach your buttons on the opposite side.  I used 6- 5/8" buttons.

 All set!  Enjoy your new pillow!
