Pumpkin Pillow

OCTOBER 7, 2020

Nothing says fall like pumpkins! This Pumpkin Pillow pattern would make a great addition to your home decor. You can change the colors to brighten it up if the lighter colors aren't your style. Or, you could make 12 of the pumpkin graphs and sew them together (3 x 4) to make a pumpkin afghan that would measure approximately 45 inches by 60 inches. I hope you like my pattern!

After you finish the last square you are going to continue crocheting around the border.

**Border**: ch 1, in the side of each square you will make two sc and in each corner you will sc-ch 2-sc.

**Pillow Back**

I used **Soft White** for the pillow back but you could use **Buff** or **Medium Thyme.**

Make a back using the same pattern as the front of the pillow but without the color changes.

Lay your pillow covers with the WRONG sides facing each other. The RIGHT sides will both be facing outward. Using your **tapestry needle** and **soft white** yarn, sew the covers together through the single crochet borders. After you have sewn three of the four sides together, stuff with a **pillow insert** or **Poly Fil**. Sew the last side.

You are done! I hope you enjoyed this pattern. Tag me on **Instagram** (@lovable_loops) or **Facebook** to share your pictures with me.
