Moss Stitch Crochet Pillow
The moss stitch is a really simple crochet stitch, made by alternating single crochet stitches and chains, but it creates a neat woven type texture. I used that stitch to make this easy crochet pillow. I also used a bulky weight yarn that has a gradual color change and a large hook which made the project even faster and gave it more visual interest. The pillow is made by crocheting a long strip that is then folded so that the ends overlap creating a flap on one side. Then the sides are stitched closed and a pillow insert is put inside of the cover through the flap on the back. If you want to make a crocheted pillow cover but you don’t want something complicated or that will take a long time to make this is a great pillow to try. Finished size is about 12″ square.
