It's off my hook!


I've been moving my hook, and have completed the round petal pillow. I believe I will make one more. But first I have a square and rectangle one to finish. All in good time. 

The pattern was easy enough, with a repeat so it works up very quickly, and I like the finished product very much with the texture and shell pattern ( which is my favorite) . I found a round pillow form at JoAnn's and picked it up avoiding unnecessary browsing and buying. I do purchase patterns on occasion, I don't do it very often, and if I can find the pattern for free, and sometimes you can. 

I didn't have enough yarn to do the entire pillow in the same color, but it works out fine, I think all the colors will work, and I can flip the pillow. I took almost a whole ball of Caron Simply Soft, half of it is Heatherwood Green, which I really like, and the other gray. So I used up some stash too!  

This is the Heatherwood Green side

                                                                         Flip Side.....

                                       This is the med gray color, trimmed with the Heatherwood Gray

This was a nice easy pattern, and it really makes a nice pillow cover.


  1. The pillow turned out very pretty. I like the design. Do you have a favorite brand of yarn you like? I am basically only familiar with Red Heart brand; and in worsted weight.

  2. Hi Sandra, thank you for stopping and commenting. I do have favorites. I like Caron Simply Soft, it a very soft yarn, and has a sheen. And I like Hobby Lobby Yarn Bee Secret Soft it is similar, to Caron Simply soft. Red Heart is a wonderful yarn with History, and very good for many projects I find it rather scratchy and stiff for some projects.

    1. Thank you for your response. I have never bought yarn from Hobby Lobby before; maybe for my next project I will try some.

  3. They have a a really nice selection of yarns, all kinds. The store where I shop has them on display in colorways, and it is very appealing to the eye. Hobby Lobby is a nice store. They are closed on Sundays.


It has been a sincere joy to have you visit.
