Today’s Square: Chevron Pillow
Size: 13 x 10.6 inch
Pattern By: Marianne Forrestal
Yarn: Worsted weight acrylic RHSS Paddy Green, Hot Red.
Pattern from: Ravelry
Notes: I did something a little different and made a pillow. A pillow in Christmas colors! I used a smaller hook than called for and my pillow was 3 inches smaller all around than the pattern. Instead of using a pillow form as directed, I stuffed it with fiberfill. I’m not entirely satisfied with my whip stitching on the ends. If I made another one, I will carry two colors across so there’s less chance of seeing the color bleed through every other stripe.
I took this project traveling with me to the doctor. While I was waiting for the bus, several random people exclaimed “Christmas in July!” as they passed by me. 😀
