  • The front pillow panel is crocheted in the round from the middle outwards
  • For the back panel I used a piece of fabric (a full tutorial with photos is included in the pattern) but you could just as easily crochet 2 panels and join them using round of slip stitches.


  • The triangle colorwork on this pillow is done using tapestry crochet. Each triangle is made using a ‘bobbin’ with the unused strand ‘floated’ behind the active strand (the wrong side will be hidden so you do not need to worry about the floats being seen)
  • Before you begin the colorwork section, create your bobbins by cutting approx. 2 yds/2m of yarn for each triangle. To prevent the bobbins from getting tangled up, I used clothes pins to clip the unused bobbins to the main square as I went along. You can also use special plastic or cardboard yarn bobbins
  • The pattern includes written instructions for the colorwork section and the pdf version also includes a color chart
