This pattern has BOTH crochet and knit versions.

I love minis skeins and swaps and these pillow patterns came about as a way to show off all those mini skeins, scraps and leftovers! I wanted to have a way to either crochet or knit a pillow with minis that was adaptable to any size of pillow form, and it’s so fun to choose a theme…I did Christmas and Halloween versions, but a solid, striped or randomly scrappy pillow is fun too! If you create a magic knot ball there won’t even be ends to weave in!

A 15 inch pillow (either knit or crochet) used about 150 grams or 600 yards of fingering weight yarn. Both patterns are easily adaptable to other weights of yarn, just by choosing a corresponding hook/needle size.

UPDATE: I made a 14 inch pillow out of one skein of self striping yarn…it looks scrappy but no joining of mini skeins!
