Four squares of little fans stitches add a nice texture to this pillow cover. The sample in this pattern is sewn onto a fabric lining, and has a fabric back as well, instructions are included. However, there is no reason why you could not make 2 of the crochet fronts and stitch them together to make an entirely crochet pillow cover, if you can't or don't want to sew.
About 18" by 18" or whatever size you want!
Lion Brand Heartland, 1 skein each of 2 colors. I used:
US 10/J/6.00 mm
3 1/2 fans across and 5 rows tall in pattern to make a 4" square
Stitches and Skills used:
ch ~ chain
dc ~ double crochet
sc ~ single crochet

Once upon a time I was a professional costume designer/builder. Then I met a boy. You know how that goes. Now I am a Stay At Home Mom in NJ. We have twin girls who were born in July '07. The artist in me can not stay still, and we could use more income, so here I am! I love creating knit and crochet patterns, sewing (obviously!), book making, well...creating just about anything.
We also have a creative hobby. In some of our free time we are Medieval Re-creationists.
You can learn more about me, and see lots of fun snaps of my children and other creations on my blog, ~or~ You can keep tabs on my creations on my facebook page, both are linked below with my other crafty pages.
Thanks for stopping by!
