Big Fluffy Rainbow Crochet Pillow

May 17, 2017

Big, Fluffy, Rainbow Pillow… a technical name, I know. As soon as I saw the Yarnspirations Bernat Blanket Stripes yarn, I had to pick some up. I didn’t want to make a blanket… because summer. So I figured a big, fluffy pillow was in order!

I used two skeins, one for each side, and then I sewed them together. I picked two skeins that had the same starting color (they both had blue in the center pull of the skein) so both sides of my pillow look the same.

PATTERN

Materials:
2 skeins Bernat Blanket Stripes in Rain Glow (I used one skein for each panel)

For the first panel: fasten off and weave in the ends. Keep the leftover yarn, you might need it for sewing the panels together

For the second panel: Do not fasten off. Put panels together, right side facing out, and sew both sides together using sc. About halfway around, start filling with fiber fill. As you continue around, continue stuffing. Stuff, stuff, stuff! Join to the top of the first sc. Fasten off and weave in all the ends.

Now you have the rainbow-y-est, fluffiest, comfiest pillow EVER!
