"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"
