​Bright Crochet Pillow Cover

You’ll need:

90 yards of Worsted weight yarn in 3 colors (each);

Crochet hook 4,5 mm;

Three 1 ¼ inch wooden buttons;

Yarn needle.

 

Size: 16 x 16 inches square pillow. 

 

Stitches control: Front panel: 12 dc stitches= 4 inches;

Back Panel: 13 hdc stitches = 4 inches.

  

Used Patterns

Triple crochet (tr): Wrap the yarn around the hook twice, insert hook into next st and pull up a loop, (yarn over and pull through 2 loops at a time ) 3 times, 1 triple crochet stitch made.

Front Post Triple Crochet (Fptr): This stitch is worked like the regular triple crochet except for the fact that you insert your hook in a different way before you pull up a loop. You can see a tutorial on Front post double crochet here. For the front post triple crochet, you insert your hook in the same way and work a triple in place of a double crochet.
