~ ragg crochet pillow ~

Here it is - my ragg crochet pillow:

I've always liked the look of ragg quilting, but since I don't quilt I came up with my crochet version.  All you need is this:

and a little time.  Crochet nine (9) closed granny squares:

Working thru the back loops of the square on the right on the 2nd row, and the front loops of the square of the right on the 1st row, sc across.  (Your sc ridge will be on the front of your project.)  Now pick up the next squares and join them together the same way.

Repeat for the second line of joining.  Turn piece and sc the remaining 2 join lines across.  Ch 1 to hop over the intersecting joins.

Your next step is to join the Bernat Boa novelty eyelash yarn with a sc to the first sc on any joining ridge, sc in each sc across with a ch 1 to hop over the intersecting joins.

Repeat for the other 3 joining ridges.

For the outer edge, join Bernat Boa novelty eyelash yarn with a sc in any corner, (ch 1, sc) in same corner.  Sc in the front loop of each dc around with (sc, ch 1, sc) in each corner.  Join with a sl st to 1st sc.  End off.

***Debi Y's version***

There you have it - simple as pie.  (mmmmm, pie)   

I only made a front piece - I already had a fabric covered pillow so I just tacked this to it - and I didn't feel like making another piece because I've got to get back to my baby blankies.  Speaking of - I think this would be good for a blanket - just need more squares of course.  Maybe one day.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great crochet day.  :)
