Love these pillows!



I just love this basketweave pillow pattern. The pattern I have for it calls for a G hook, but I didn't like the way it came out using four-ply yarn with a G hook, so I use an I hook. I made this to fit an 18-inch pillow form, and I love the way it came out. LMHO So much so that I now have two more on my hooks, one in gold, and one in off-white (RH Aran, to be precise). They work up fairly quickly, too, just four or six hours apiece. It's a nice mindless pattern to work while I'm watching TV or whatever.....


Y'all have a great day.

I love this? Which pattern are you using? Can you share it? I'm sure I have some basketweave instructions somewhere, just wondering about your starting chain count, etc.

Love the orange color. Is that Vanna's Goldfish?

Your pillow is very pretty and I love the fall color. Basketweave is always fun to do. Have a great day.

Love the pillow! The color isn't too bold or too washed out either.

The color is Red Heart carrot. I use an I hook, and chain 61, that way I have the groups of four, with a half double or ch 2 at each end. I cover an 18-inch form, using fifteen repeats of the basketweave pattern. For the back, it's just ch 55 then do enough half double rows to make it big enough.

Thank you for all your wonderful compliments. With all your wonderful projects, they mean a lot.
