January #CALOFTHEMONTH2017 Pillow Project

#CALOFTHEMONTH2017  January Pillow CAL!

The pattern you voted for us to crochet for January’s Pillow CAL is:

January #CALOFTHEMONTH2017 Pillow Project!

Scrapalicious Cushion by Joanita Theron

Yarn: DK Weight Yarn
Hook: 3.5 mm (E)
Finished Size: 35 cm by 32 cm
Closure: Fold Over Flower Button

Be sure to choose one brand of yarn for the whole project! That way you won’t be disappointed if some pieces are not the same size as others. Even when they say they are the same weight yarns that does not mean they will be exactly the same – or even crochet up to be the same size when you are done.

I chose Red Heart Super Saver yarn from my stash for my project and this is how it looks so far:


Yarn: Red Heart Super Saver in 4 colors (Approximately 1/2 ball of each: Pool, Red, White and Black)
Hook: 4 mm (G) Clover Amour Crochet Hook

My Small Squares are 3.5 inches by 3.5 inches
My Large Square is 15 inches wide by 12.5 inches tall (don’t worry it will be square after the flap is added!).

After joining, edging and assembly I believe my finished pillow will be approximately 16 inches by 16 inches in size.

When Joanita designed the Pillow it was conveniently shared as a CAL so there are 3 parts which you can work on – separately – or all in one sitting. I chose to work on them separately and I completed Part 1 (shown in the image above) first. I plan on starting Part 2 later today and I will update you on my progress next Saturday!

  1. That pattern is so cute! I love the detail of the heart and the grannies as a frame, so classic!
