Coral Points Pillow

Well it’s been busy! Have started my new job which included a couple of months in Germany. All the while trying to find a new apartment to move in to back in Krakow. I finally got back in to town and within a week had moved in to a beautiful new place. Am not used to living somewhere so nice… I still need to get used to having a dishwashing machine… I keep going to hand wash my dishes. #firstworldproblems

Anyway, while I work on that, I have crocheted the first item for the new place! A pillow for the couch (yay I have a couch finally!). And to make matters confusing, here is a pic of it on the armchair. Yeah, I am a proper adult with an armchair AND a couch. Woo!

Coral Points Pillow 1 With LOGO

Made from coral cotton yarn it seems pretty durable. For the cover, I used fabric from old bedsheets that we no longer use. I couldn’t be assed dealing with a zipper, so I decided to try out a envelope style cover (link HERE to the directions I used). The envelope method is like a bajillion times easier than trying to get a hidden zipper in there. Do recommend.

The pattern used is the same one I used for my Blue Jeans Triangle Scarf that I made a little while ago. You can find the pattern on my pattern blog HERE if you are interested! It’s such a nice pattern that’s really easy to execute and can be used in so many different ways.

Modern Crochet Placemats

The pattern I used for this was a granny circle… How can a pattern that has the word “Granny” in it be called modern?! It’s all about the colours!

Placemats with logo

I am currently in Germany for a couple of months for work, and I must say that choosing which yarns to take with me was one of the single most difficult decisions of the year so far!

Ultimately I think I made the right choice, but it’s still tough to be separated from my full yarn stash for so long!

Let me know if you would be interested in the pattern. It’s a super simple one, and I finished two placemats in one day, so it’d make a nice quick gift!
