Cascades Pillow
Cascades Pillow

"This crochet pillow pattern uses the waistcoat stitch in the round to create a knit-look texture. The use of fair isle crochet (the technique of alternating colors without finishing off to create a design) and changing colors mid-stitch creates the floating ‘v’ shapes throughout the design. Using a variegated color yarn for the contrasting color creates the illusion of may colors of yarn, but it is really just two different yarns used in the pattern. Materials: – 212 yards of size 6 yarn in a neutral color (I used Wool-Ease Thick & Quick in Fisherman) – 44 yards of size 6 yarn in a variegated color (I used Wool-Ease Thick & Quick in Coney Island) – 14 inch pillow form – Size P/ 11.5 mm crochet hook – Yarn needle – Scissors"

This is a interesting pattern, one that I so have to do. This Cascades Pillow pattern is long but so nice looking. I have always liked crocheting the waistcoat stitch, it makes a great looking pattern and adding a different color once in awhile give a nice effect. I've been looking for a pattern to use to cover a old sofa throw pillow and this one will work just great. I like that there is plenty of pictures showing what it should look like and a clear large chart for the color changes. So many ideas for the colors too.. Looking to get this one going. Thank you so much for sharing this free crochet pillow pattern.

So many pillows have a decidedly feminine look, but this one can be worked as either gender neutral or masculine, especially if you work it using the colors suggested by the designer. Her little photo describing how to work the Waistcoat Stitch is one of the best and most succinct Ive seen. I know I personally struggled with this stitch when I first tried to learn it, and most of the videos I found werent especially helpful.

I would seriously get lost trying to follow the diagram. It is helpful! But not for me, the way my brain works. I probably would just get the first or two going and then I would continue on using the visual in front of me. I still have not attempted any kind of Fair Aisle crocheting! It looks very cool!

I can relate. The only reason I persisted in learning to read the darn things is because I found a wonderful Japanese pattern and that was the only way I could read it.
