This large throw pillow cover can be made to be put on your bed, floor, large chair or just to cuddle up to.
I have made the sample in cream colored yarn with wooden buttons, but a more vibrant color and contrast buttons would look good too.
It’s an easy stitch pattern so even if you are a beginner crocheter you can give it a go, (impress your friends). Hope you enjoy!
