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.
