Special Stitches

Puff stitch (ps): yo, insert hook in indicated st, yo, pull lp through st and make lp same height as previous sts in working row, [yo, insert hook in same st, yo, pull lp through st and make lp same height as working row] twice, yo, pull through all 7 lps on hook, ch 1 to close.

V-puff stitch (V-ps): (ps, ch 1, ps) in same st. (Note: Since the puff stitch ends with a ch 1 to close, the ch 1 between the 2 puff sts is in addition to the one used to close the first ps.)

Pattern Notes

Chain-3 at beginning of row counts as first double crochet unless otherwise stated.

To change colors, work to last 2 lps on hook, with new color yo and pull through last 2 lps. Fasten off non-working yarn after each color change.

When working the Panel Sections, it is helpful to label them as Lower Panel and Upper Panel, so you know where to place them when joining.

The front and back sides of the pillow are identical.

  • For each tassel, wrap yarn around a 5” piece of cardboard 15 times.

  • Use another one of the 15” tie strands to tie around the tassel about 1” from the top.
    Trim tassels as needed.
  • Use the top ties to attach the tassels to the ch-2 sps on each side of pillow. Skip every other ch-2 sp with an extra sp in the middle. Reference photo for color placement. With tapestry needle hide the loose tie ends inside the tassel.
