Acorn Pixel Art Throw Pillow
Near the end of September, I shared a free crochet pattern for an Acorn Pixel Art Square. In this post, I gave several ideas for what could be done with the square, and mentioned I had something in the works myself. Well, here it is! An Acorn Pixel Art Throw Pillow! This link is for the back panel only - added to the original square to create a pillow. Link in post for original acorn square.
NotesThis back panel took me about 7 and a half hours to complete - I worked about a row a day, including the weaving for that row. For entire pillow, double that time.
