The Yarn


To crochet this pillow I used Lion Brand Yarn Wool Ease in 3 different colors, Seaspray, Denim & Fisherman.

I love that they have a good amount of beautiful colors to choose from.

Earlier I’ve also used this yarn for the Cold Day Hat & Cold Day Cowl.

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.

TIP! You can swap the Leaf Clover Granny Square for the Classic Granny Square on this crochet pattern!

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.

Calculate how long it takes to crochet that.

Notes 


  • This crochet pattern is written in US terms.
  • All measurements given are unblocked.
  • Note that measurements are given as exact as possible. But crochet tension & technique might give variations in the result, that changes from person to person.
  • Read pattern instructions carefully before beginning to make sure you understand everything. It might save you hours frogging your work & crocheting it again!
  • Make a swatch that measure at least 10 x 10 cm / 4 x 4 inches using the stitch the gauge is given for. If your swatch matches the gauge, you’re good to go. If the gauge is wrong, you might need to change your hook. Go up in crochet hook size if your stitches are smaller & go down in crochet hook size if your stitches are bigger. Learn more about testing gauge.
  • Check yarn info if you want to find an alternative or test your yarn against the gauge. Learn more about substituting yarn.
