One of my favorite thing about the fall and winter seasons is bringing all the decor inside. For summer and spring, mother nature tends to take care of that. But for fall we can bring all the tones and feature season looks inside.

The Hello Fall Crochet Pillow is a colorwork technique project with rewarding results. I highly recommend using bobbins to keep yourself from being wrapped up in tangles.

Take a moment to hop on over to this post. Learn about the different ways to do crochet color-work but also for a freebie!

The printable Sheep Yarn Bobbins are super helpful and also cute. You can even cut them out on a cutting machine!

This fall has been an interesting one for sure. We've decided to have our children do remote learning until we find it safe to return to the classroom. So what crazy thing did we do next? We let them get a 'class pet'. Meet Marlow!

I really don't know what we were thinking, other than how much it would bring the boys joy. It's worked out so far. They enjoy holding their hamster before school and then he sleeps while they work hard. And in the evenings they can't wait until he wakes up to hold him again.

I'm sure we will be seeing more of Marlow with crochet and knit stuff soon. He is the nicest hamster I have ever met and I think will enjoy running around my fun photo sets. I already crocheted a cute pouch for him and I can't wait to make more fun things.

### Notes:

- Please note, matching gauge both horizontal and vertical can be difficult. Extra rows can be added at the top if needed. It is more important to match the stitch gauge versus the row gauge. This pattern also has some ease to fit over a pillow.

- This pattern is worked from bottom up in rows and in two pieces. The front panel will also work a button hole flap to secure the top of the crochet pillow. The front and the back panels will be slip stitched together once completed.

- After the end of each row turn and ch 1. The ch 1 does not count as a stitch.

- There is a wrong side and a right side to the pillow panels. Use a combination of intarsia and carrying yarn across the back for the color work. Experiment and see what works best for you.

- A burlap back can be used in substitute for a crochet pillow back.

#### Half way through the Hello Pumpkin Crochet Pillow

Can you see it coming together! You are half way through the colorwork so go ahead and give yourself a reward….might I suggest a pumpkin latte?

At this point each row adds to the design and we can see where we are headed. I find crochet tapestry similar to doing a puzzle, only less pieces flying everywhere. If you are having a hard time with yarn tangles, try out the yarn bobbins. While it takes a minute to set up, it’s so worth not untangling yarn later.

Keep on going! The finish line is just around the corner.

#### Now for the finishing touches.

You’ve done the bulk of the work! Now to get the finishing details done so you can proudly display your love and fall. There are two choices for the back panel. One is to create a fabric with yarn. This will work up much faster than the front as we are only using one color.

Another option I’ve fallen in love with is burlap fabric. It is very inexpensive, time saving, and adds a beautiful texture. If you haven’t noticed yet this pillow is reversible, and the burlap really adds a fun feature. Don't be afraid to try it out!

**Back Panel:**

-With white or color of choice, chain 68 and start the first row in the second chain from hook. (67 sts)

-Single crochet a total of 69 rows to create the back panel.

-Fasten off and weave in ends.

OR Continue to below for burlap.

**Attaching Panels Together:**

Place the front and back panels together with wrong sides facing. If using burlap cut two pieces approximately one inch longer on each side of pillow. Your crochet hook will be able to work through the holes in the burlap.

Using white yarn, slip stitch from top of one side of pillow (where the panels meet or at row 86, not over the flap), around the bottom, and up the other side. I found by slip stitching with a tight tension really makes some crisp edges, but you do not want puckering. Fasten off and weave in ends. Flip pillow so the right side is facing out and the seams are on the inside.

**Attaching Buttons:**

With the back panel facing, fold front panel down over the top of the back panel. With stitch markers mark the row where each button will be placed. Using a yarn needle and green yarn, sew each button in place.

Place a 20x20 pillow inside the cover and enjoy!
