The Directions

 

 

DIMENSIONS: 30 cm in diameter

Be careful to keep the same tension throughout when making the two panels; this will ensure that they line up correctly later, when sewing together.

The pattern does not use slip stitches to join the beginning and end of each round.  Instead, simply use a stitch marker to keep track of the number of stitches.

Assembly:

To join the two panels, align them with the wrong sides facing each other. Then, making sure to line up the stitches and working at the edge, pass your hook through both panels (go through both stitches on the front and back panels of the pillow). From here, pick-up your yarn and drawn it back through these stitches. Now, simply sl st all the way around the rim of the panels, binding them together.

When you are about 3/4 of the way around, stuff your pillow with polyester filling. Shape your pillow by adjusting the polyfill. And continue to sl st around until you have lined up and joined all of the stitches. Tie off and sew in the tail. 

If you prefer, you could use a round pillow insert instead of polyfill.

Sew on the decorative crochet balls, spacing them equally around the cushion.

Enjoy! 🙂
