My latest Home Hooking column for Interweave Crochet Magazine is in the Fall 2012 issue, along with my pattern for a granny-stripe worked on the bias pillow. I love playing with pops of color in an otherwise neutral room at home, and pillows make that easy to do without having to make a big, home decor commitment.
This version uses Vickie Howell Sheep(ish) yarn in colors: Yellow(ish), Gun Metal(ish), Turquoise(ish) and Coral(ish) over a grey pillow.
The back of the piece was worked in solid, Yellow(ish).
I think I may have a slight, granny stripe problem. Get ready to see several more projects from me out this season with some version of the motif in it. I'm digging the retro-kitsch of it so much, I even used a close-up shot of the stripes from this very project, for my new business cards!
I also have a larger version of the Granny Bias pillow in my bedroom, but in a funkier, chartreuse/purple/ black combo. Obsessed much?
But I digress.
Get the yarn for this project online or at a store near you, and nab the magazine when it hits stands on September 13th.
