Christmas Sun Pillow

Sun Daze is the pattern chosen for the alternate Ravelry Block-A-Month CAL. I love Dayna’s patterns and this one is no exception.

Happily crocheting along, I notice that the center pooks out too much for my liking, so I double check the pattern and my stitches. Aha, I am using an H hook says I and I should be using an I hook. So, I set this one aside and grab the I hook; begin again.

OK, less pooking, but its getting too big, too fast. Scrutinize pattern and my stitches again. Aha, what do you know — it was supposed to be an H hook after all. So I set aside the I hook block and finish the H hook block. All turns out well with that one and the pookiness is less noticeable with the weight of more rows.

Now, what to do with my I hook block? I abhor frogging. Pillows forms calling from my yarniverse in the corner. *heeey, what about us* Hey, I had a great idea: why don’t I make a matching Christmas pillow with one of those pillow forms I bought a year ago for some long forgotten project.  So, side one of my Christmas pillow completed and still undecided about what to do for the back side.

And so you’ll know what a circular trip this really was….the pattern calls for an I hook. I try to do most of my squares w/an H hook because it is my favorite and just because.

    I’m thinking of doing something similar as well, making a pillow from the squares.
