I started this pillowghan on July 27, 2012. All the squares were finished–they just had to be joined which seems to be my sticking point most of the time. Generally a pillowghan consists of 13 squares–12 for the afghan and one to make the pocket to turn it into a pillow. When you’re using the ‘ghan supposedly you can use the pocket to put your feet in.
Of course I decided to get tricky about it all and made 26 squares, thinking I’d like an oblong pillow. I didn’t think it through enough and so it kind of made the pocket not useable as a foot warmer unless you have the ‘ghan placed low on your lap. But it’ll still be useful.
It was a struggle to get all those squares folded and stuffed into the pocket. I double stitched with double strands when attaching the pocket to make sure it wouldn’t come off.
I’m not as happy with it as I would like, but at least I finished it and now I have space on my shelf to put another project!
