Springtime Crocheted Accent Pillow

I haven’t been feeling felt well for the past few day. I started this pillow last Friday and finished with it Monday morning.

Pillow

It reminds me of the colors of spring.

It consists of 3 row of sc (after each sc row ch 1, turn) and 1 row of †dc cluster  repeat pattern-on an even number of starting chs-until desired length.  I used a 12″ x 16″ pillow insert.  I used a size G crochet hook.  For this pillow, I started with a ch of 60.  Your starting ch may be more or less depending on your crochet tension.

Materials:

Crochet hook size G
2 skeins worsted weight-7 oz. each (colors of your choice)
1 Pillow Form

Pattern Stitches-Dc Cl-yo, insert hook in st indicated, yo, draw through a loop; yo, draw through 2 loops (2 loops left on hook); yo, insert hook in same st;  yo, draw through a loop; yo, draw through 2 loops ( 3 loops left on hook); yo, insert hook in same st; yo, draw through a loop; yo, draw through 2 loops ( 4 loops left on hook); yo and draw through all 4 loops.

Ch 60 (or desired number of even chs)

Rows 1-3 Sc in 2nd ch from hook and in each ch across (59 sc) ch 1 turn. Do 2 more sc row. After the 3rd row of sc; ch 3 turn (counts as 1 dc for next row)

Row 4 Skip 1st sc; dc in next sc (2 dc made counting the ch 3 as 1 dc); *dc cl in next stitch; ch 1; skip 1 sc; repeat from * across ending with 1 dc cl and 2 dc in last two sc. Turn. Ch 1.

Repeat Rows 1-4 for desired length ensuring that you end with 3 row of sc.  Ch 1 turn continuing with same color for edging.

Edging:
I did 2 sc rows around the top and bottom and 1 sc and 1 hdc row along the sides making 3 sc-on all rnds-in each corner then closed with a sc around with the contrasting color.

Make 2

That’s it!

It doesn’t take long to do after you learn the pattern.
