You’re going to love the Clover Leaf Granny Square Pillow. It’s a great pattern to use the Clover Leaf Crochet Granny Square pattern I shared a little while back.
This pillow is a perfect way to integrate some crochet into your home decor. You can make all squares in one color or make squares in different colors like I have.
Each square is quick to make & a fun small project.

THE PERFECT HOME DECOR CROCHET PROJECT
The Clover Leaf Granny Square Pillow is a fun crochet project for your home.
All the small granny squares have tiny holes in them, but I solved that when I decided to use a pillow cover over the pillow, before adding my own crocheted pillow.
Those tiny holes makes an interesting look & I thought it was well worth it to use them in a pillow design.

HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO CROCHET THAT?
How long it takes to crochet something varies depending on your skill & how fast you crochet. But that isn’t a helpful answer is it?
Well, I’ve developed a yarn calculator to help you get the answer to this question.
It will help you calculate exactly how much time you’ll spend crocheting a project.
All you need to know is how much yarn you will use on the project in either meters, yards or skeins. Then crochet your test square & time it.
