Crochet Hexagons Pillow

Categories: Decor, Pillow, Crochet

This crocheted pillow cover is made by making 24 hexagon motifs and joining them together. The hexagons fit together in a way that creates the square pillow shape. The pillow insert is completely enclosed in the cover so this particular cover is not removable. It fits a 14 inch pillow insert. Five colors of yarn were used to make the hexagons and a random color placement was used.
