Give your home some modern, minimalist style with this set inspired by the free-spirited mountain town of Durango, Colorado.

Colorful single crochet stitches through the front loop create a woven-like textile. Because the yarn can be cut at each color change and knotted at the back of the work and sewn inside the finished pillow, there’s no need to carry colors or weave in ends!
