How many pillows does one need? In my opinion you never have enough! So a new pillow landed on our sofa. Not really a new pillow, but the cover is new.
Apologies for the bad picture; but here it shows how I made the closure. On one side I crocheted 10 rows of sc, on the other side 5 rows of sc and a final row of sc with little loops. Then I put these on top of each other and made 3 rounds of grannie stitches, and a final round of sc.
2 Circles for both sides (with the same amount of stitches in the last round as in the final round described above), and finally crocheted together with slip stitches.
And last but not least, a few colourful buttons:
The funny thing I noticed making this cover, is the more colours you use, the less important it is how they match. If you use only a handful of colours, it is very important to choose the colours carefully, but making the squares I’ve tried to do it completely randomly; I put a cloth over my yarn, and with my hand I grabbed a new colour. Only if I took the same colour I had to put it back. And in the end I think it really worked.
Maybe you remember the pile of fabric I bought a few months ago; one of these fabrics was for a suit for my youngest son. It is finished, he already has worn it twice, and I do have a picture for you, but it isn’t a great pic and my son didn’t want his face on it.
I wish all of you a wonderful Christmas!!
