This past winter was a winter of chunky yarn. I had so much fun making scarves and hats that I almost didn’t want the cold weather to go away. The warm weather has a silver lining though (and I am not even talking about shorts and flip-flops), it pushed me to make something pretty with chunky yarn! This Beach Waves pillow brings beachy and cool colors into my home, and I love how BIG and CHUNKY this yarn is! Red Heart Grande has pushed it’s way into my top favorite chunky yarns.

I love how quickly this pillow came together. Once you get the hang of switching colors on the sc row, the pillow works up very quickly.
