Snowflake Crochet Pillow

I stitched this Snowflake Crochet Pillow this week. Fortunately, it isn't that cold here yet, but it's time to retire some old holiday pillows I have for some new winter decorations.

Snowflake Crochet Pillow

The pattern was in Crochet Today last winter, but I found the pattern online. Click HERE.

The snowflake was kind of hard. I kept getting mixed up and ripping it out until I started using the chart provided with the pattern. It took a long time to applique it onto the pillow!

Snowflake Crochet Pillow

Crochet Today is published by Coats so the projects are mostly using their inexpensive yarn like Red Heart acrylic or Aunt Lydia's Crochet Thread. I'm coming around to the Red Heart Acrylic. It isn't nice for stuff next to your skin, but it is inexpensive, sturdy with no dye lots. It's nice for amigurumi, home dec., and scrubbers.

Pretty! The snowflake does look hard to do but what a pretty pillow! I'm a sucker for cheap read heart super saver yarn and it is nice for amigurumi! Vanna's Choice is also good cuz I love the colors.

Rob- The chairs are great! We even have two! That match!

I made this project 6 years ago and since then, it has been taken offline. It was in a Crochet Today magazine from Winter 2008. You can make a version of it however. Try finding a crochet snowflake pattern with 4 points instead of 8. Crochet it in worsted weight and then appliqué it to a red base pillow. That is how this one was done. Appliquéing the snowflake took longer than crocheting it. Good Luck!
