But it’s so fun to see how things transform by simply doing a color change. I loved the plaid deer pillow so much I was curious to see how it worked up for a lighter decor piece.

And I was not disappointed with the results. I hope you enjoy this in these lighter tones as well.

Why settle for only winter colors when something can be freshened up for spring? I first made this pillow using bold holiday style colors and that free pattern can be found here: https://brianakdesigns.com/plaiddeerpillow/

Gauge:
• 13 sts and 20 rows = 4” [10 cm] with US 7 Needle

Measurements:
18 inches (46 cm) wide
18 inches (46 cm) tall

Abbreviations:
• p- purl
• k- knit
• RS- Right Side
• sl st- Slip Stitch
• sts- Stitches
• WS- Wrong Side

Skill Level:
• Easy/Advanced Beginner

Notes:

– Please note, matching gauge both horizontal and vertical can be difficult. Extra rows can be added at the top if needed so 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 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. 

– Since there is a wrong side and a right side to the pillow panels, I used a combination of intarsia and carrying yarn across the back for the color work. Experiment and see what works best for you.
