Last week I was cruising the Internet and saw these pillows. I had to immediately go and buy the current issue of Crochet Today and make one for my husband.





I love it. He loves it. Joy all around.

The back is supposed to be solid, but I got bored and made it striped instead. It's like two pillows in one, depending on his mood.

You can't really see the pillow underneath, that's just the camera flash bringing it out.

It was quite easy. It's all single, half and double crochet. The only tricky part is that you do the knot first, but if you take your time and pay attention to the directions it's not hard at all.

Awesome!  When I saw those on the internet, I wished I'd let Aunt Ginger teach me to crochet those years ago and now I'm wishing so again.  Great job (giving your husband wood)!  Tongue  Also, it looks like it's sitting on a very cool chair!
