Hot & Cold Crochet Pillow

DIYAmanda Walter | Maple Alps6 Comments

I have a sweet pen pal who had a birthday in January and I decided to crochet her a pillowcase out of some scrap yarn I was trying to use up. I initially had wanted to make it all different shades of pink - her favourite colour - but then I decided to take a different approach: making one side of the pillow primarily with warm colours, and the other with cool colours.

It used up some scraps (recognize some of these colours?), and the result was pretty cute. I didn't use a pattern for the pillow - just made it up as I went and had a lot of fun!

The day after I sent it, I got a picture of a grinning girl sent to me holding out the pillow. I guess she likes it! I think I might have to make another one just for me ;-)
