Welcome everyone to plaid week! I am absolutely humbled by your positive feedback and loving encouragement on this project, and I truly hope you find a project that you absolutely love this week! Today is the first day of plaid week and I am sharing this quickest pattern of all, this chunky crochet plaid pillow.
Gauge: 8 dc = 5″
Ch 48. Taking care not to twist your ch, sl st into the first ch, making a large loop.
1. Ch 1. Sc in each ch. Join with a sl st. (48 sts)
2. Ch 1. Work the dc plaid stitch all the way across, alternating black and wine. Join with a sl st. (48 sts)
3. – 13. Ch 1. Work the dc plaid stitch all the way across. Join with sl st.
14. Using black, Ch 1. Sc in each st across. Join with sl st. (48 sts).
Don’t break yarn.
You should have a plaid tube. Flatten your tube so the join is on the very right, and the seam runs down the side of the tube. Beginning where you left off, sl st all the way across the top, going through both layers to it sews it together. Tie off and weave in end.
Put your pillow into the plaid pillow case. It will be a nice, snug fit. Using black yarn, sl st the remaining end closed. Tie off and weave in ends.
Meet you back here tomorrow for Day Two of Plaid Week!
