You’re going to love the fun texture of this crochet pillow!
At the moment I am loving working with cotton! I am also enjoying sprucing up my home décor a little bit! A few weeks ago I added this Beach Glass pillow to the mix (Found here: Beach Glass Pillow – A Free Crochet Pattern) and then this 100% cotton throw (Found here: Cotton Beach Glass Throw – A Free Crochet Pattern). Now today I bring you a crochet pattern for the On the Fringe Pillow! Stay tuned – next week I will have another throw pillow design!
This pillow has a super fun, furry texture – my kids absolutely gravitated toward it, loving how soft “and fuzzy” it is.
It’s made in a worsted weight cotton which is easy to come by, relatively inexpensive and comes in a huge range of colour! So there are so many possibilities! I am enjoying the happiness that this yellow conveys!
The furriness is created using a crochet loop stitch. After the face of the pillow is completed, the loops are cut to give it more of a shaggy appearance. Of course, you may decide to leave the loops in tact.
To help you along the way I have created a free video tutorial for you – it will be linked at the bottom of the pattern below. While you are there please subscribe to my YouTube Channel (https://www.youtube.com/c/RichTexturesCrochet/) where I like to post weekly patterns and tutorials!
