Additional Materials

GAUGE:
13 sc = 8 in. (20.5 cm). When you match the gauge in a pattern, your project will be the size specified in the pattern and the materials specified in the pattern will be sufficient. The needle or hook size called for in the pattern is based on what the designer used, but it is not unusual for gauge to vary from person to person. If it takes you fewer stitches and rows to make your swatch, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles. Making a Gauge Swatch
Exact gauges is not imporant to this project.

STITCH EXPLANATION:
Loop St: Insert hook in indicated st and draw up a loop; form a loop in front of work as follows: Bring working yarn to the front; hold working yarn with finger or thumb of hand holding the hook.

Leaving a loop of yarn in the front, bring working yarn to back of work.

Insert hook in same st and draw up a loop - 3 loops on hook.

Yarn over and draw through all 3 loops on hook to complete the st and lock the loop in place.

NOTES:
Pillow is crocheted in one piece with Loop sts on one half for the front and single crochet on other half for back.
