Black-White-Grey

I'm happy to say I got the pillow done in time. I love the result, though I couldn't restrain myself from using a teeny tiny bit of color. My friend loved it!



The squares are all sewn together. In the pic's you see the back and front. I joined them by single crochet all around and finished the edging with a contrasting black picot stitch.




Don't you love the little splash of color?

For the picot stitch: chain 3, double crochet in first chain from ch-3, skip 1 (or 2) stitch and join with a slip stitch. Super simple! And if you only skip one the only important thing is that you have an even number of stitches. In a square that's always the case...

Enjoy the holidays!

  13. Jenn, this is absolutely gorgeous! I love the grayscale scheme with that tiny burst of color--so clever and whimsical! I taught myself how to crochet by watching YouTube videos and have a special fondness for granny squares. Can't wait to try a riff on this color scheme!
