You’re going to love the crochet pillow pattern. It’s a great home decor crochet pattern, perfect for both your garden or to decorate inside.
The stitch used is called the Waves and Stripes Stitch, due to the small waves the stitch makes & the striped color changes.
With the white & blue this pillow almost have a nautical feel, but would look great in any color combination!

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.
