Christmas Sun Pillow

Christmas Sun Pillow

Originally uploaded by ravelSher

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. ┬áSo, 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.

No modifications to pattern. Think I should have left off a few hdc here and there in that last row. I should have also cropped that picture a little better. Ah, well, it is what it is.

Yarn: ILTY antique white, aubergine
Hook: I

Sort of filet-ish
Doesn’t look “sharp” with my loose crochet stitches, but it will be a nice addition to my bamcal afghan.

One of my smaller squares for this project, coming in just a smidge shy of 12″

Pay attention to the BLO join on a non-BLO row.

Dayna has a lot of nice block patterns as well as some other work on her blog at

Hook: I

Came out quite nice…which is good because I had a bugger of a time with row 6 & 7. I’m not really sure my row 6 is entirely correct but the 7th row has issues, so I cross stitched in the previous row’s cross stitches and dc’d before the corners as needed, as recommended by a fellow Raveler. It came out square – tada!

Lovely in….

Hook: I

This is lovely in orchid even though it looks blue.

Came out a shy 12″, so I left off the last round, even though I should probably take off the 10th round and add the more solid 11th round, since I seem to prefer that and it would give this block a little more heft. But then, I could just block it.
Next time, try with an H hook.
