Celestial Pillows

Lion Brand Babysoft

GAUGE:

14 dc = about 4 in. (10 cm)

When you match the gauge in a pattern, your project will be the size specified in the pattern and the materials specified in the pattern will be sufficient. The needle or hook size called for in the pattern is based on what the designer used, but it is not unusual for gauge to vary from person to person. If it takes you fewer stitches and rows to make your swatch, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles.

Making a Gauge Swatch

STITCH EXPLANATION:

dc2tog (dc 2 sts together) (Yarn over, insert hook in next st and draw up a loop, yarn over and draw through 2 loops) twice, yarn over and draw through all 3 loops on hook – 1 st decreased.
hdc2tog (hdc 2 sts together) (Yarn over, insert hook in next st and draw up a loop) twice, yarn over and draw through all 5 loops on hook – 1 st decreased.

NOTES:

1.  Each Pillow is made from 2 pieces, Front and Back. The Front and Back are crocheted together around the outer edges and stuffed before the seam is completely closed.
2.  For all Pillows, fiberfill stuffing will show through the spaces between the sts. If desired, you can create fabric inserts for the crochet pieces. Instructions for the fabric inserts are at the end of this pattern.
