Over in the Craftster craft alongs, the Nerd Games recently made Nerdly the Fox their mascot. I decided to make a pillow for the raffle happening at the end of the current Nerd Games season.

I designed my own chart. It measures 48x48 squares across. When worked with a 4.5mm and worsted weight yarn in the Tunisian Simple Stitch (TSS), it came out to just about the perfect size to cover a 12x12" pillow form. I then used a 4.25mm hook to work 3 rounds of single crochet on both pieces made for the pillow front and back, stitched the design on one side, then single crocheted through the back loops of both sides all around the pillow, inserting the pillow form after the first 3 sides were attached.

Front:


Back:


Here's a close up I took before I attached around the pillow:


And here's the chart!

For those of you that don't participate in the Nerd Games, here's the photo I based Nerdly from.

I haven't tackeled Tunisian crochet yet, but it's on my list! It has such a distinct, tight stitch.  Exciting to see how you were able to use it AND you made your own pattern. Huzzah!
