- The pillow panel is crocheted in the round from the middle outwards
- For the back panel I used a piece of fabric (all instructions given below) but you could just as easily crochet 2 panels and join them using round of slip stitches.
- The triangle colorwork on this pillow is done using tapestry crochet. Each triangle is made using a ‘bobbin’ with the unused strand ‘floated’ behind the active strand (the wrong side will be hidden so you do not need to worry about the floats being seen)
- Before you begin the colorwork section, create your bobbins by cutting approx. 2 yds/2m of yarn for each triangle. To prevent the bobbins from getting tangled up, I used clothes pins to clip the unused bobbins to the main square as I went along. You can also use special plastic or cardboard yarn bobbins (like these ones: http://bit.ly/yarn-bobbins)
