{Granny Square Pillow}

Last week I was crocheting granny squares! I made 16 squares and joined them using the single crochet method. I think I like this method the best, as I love the "divider" line it creates between the squares! My finished pillow measures 38x38cm approx. 15x15inches. 

For the back of the pillow, I crocheted 2 pieces using double crochet and overlapped them to create an envelope style back (it's easier to take the pillow out and wash the cover). I was thinking of adding some buttons but I finally rejected that idea. I used a 4mm hook for the back as well as and joined everything by single crocheting the pieces together. 

Do you like my new pillow? Happy Sunday to all!
