Geometric Pillow

Lion Brand® Heartland®


One Square = about 8 in. sq. (5.5 x 5.5 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


1. Pillow Front is made from 4 squares sewed together. Back is worked in stripes along one edge of assembled Front.
2. Squares are worked with RS always facing, do not turn at end of rnds.
3. Change color by working sl st at end of rnd with next color. Carry color not in use on WS of work.

SQUARE I (make 2)
With A, ch 2.
Rnd 1: Work 6 sc into first ch, drop A, pick up B.
With B, sl st in first sc to join.
Rnd 2: With B, ch 1, work 2 sc in each sc, drop B, pick up A.
With A, sl st to first sc – 12 sts at the end of this rnd.
Rnd 3: With A, ch 1, *(sc, hdc, sc) in next st (first corner made), sc through back loop in next 2 sts, (sc, hdc, sc) in next st (next corner made), sc through both loops in next 2 sts; rep from * once, change to B and sl st to first sc – 20 sts.
Rnd 4: With B, ch 1, *(sc, hdc, sc) in corner hdc, sc in each st to next corner hdc; rep from * around, change to A and sl st to first sc – 28 sts.
Rnd 5: With A, ch 1, *(sc, hdc, sc) in corner hdc, sc through back loops in each st to next corner hdc (sc, hdc, sc) in corner hdc, sc through both loops in each st to next corner hdc; repeat from * once, change to B and sl st to first sc – 36 sts.
Rnd 6: With B, rep Rnd 4 – 44 sts.
Rnds 7-16: Rep Rnds 5 and 6 – 124 sts.
Fasten off.

SQUARE II (make 2)
Work same as for Square 1, but beg with B, and reversing colors throughout.

Following Assembly Diagram, sew Squares tog.
Row 1 (RS):
Join A with sl st at one side of assembled Front.
Work 62 sc evenly spaced across side.
Row 2: Ch 1, turn, sc in each st across, change to B in last st.
Row 3: With B, ch 1, turn, sc through back loop of each st across.
Row 4: With B, rep Row 2, change to A in last st.
Row 5: With A, rep Row 3.

Rep Rows 3-6 until back measures same as Front.
