Throw Pillow Cover

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!
