Crochet Polka-Dot Pillow







Notes:

This pattern uses 2 colors, one for the main colour and a contrast colour for the polka dots. Start with the main colour and switch to contrast colour on the very last st of the single crochet. Work the bobble and switch back to main colour as you pull through the last loop on the dc. You can old the unused colour behind while you are working with the other and no need to bind off. Both colors will follow behind the pattern making it easy to switch between the two as needed. Just remember to keep the yarn behind on the wrong side of the pattern. If you notice you are starting to tangle your yarn, make sure you detangle after you finish each row or you could get yourself in to some trouble!

  • 1 skein of Bernat Blanket Yarn in Main colour and another in contrast colour for polka dots (but any bulky weight yarn will work as long as you take note of the gauge below)

  • 24in pillow
