Winter Wonderland Fir Tree Pillow

Hello crochet lovers today I am sharing my crochet pattern for “Winter Wonderland Fir Tree Pillow”. Accordingly this pillow speaks volumes as you can use it the whole winter season not just for Christmas!

Who Doesn’t love Holiday decor???????

I know I do! In addition I also love, fast and easy projects which is exactly what this one is. For this project I used Hobby Lobby I Love This Yarnct. However, you can use any size 4 medium weight yarn of your liking. I just love Hobby Lobby yarn because it is always soft and not stiff or scratchy.

Since this is a basic level pattern you need to know chain stitch and single crochet to complete the front and back panels. Therefore for the trees you need to know a few more stitches from half double crochet, single crochet 2 together, half double crochet 2 together, bobble stitch and cluster stitch. In addition instructions for special stitches are included in the special stitches section below. So if you need help with the other basic stitches make sure to check out the TUTORIALS PAGE The stitches/texture used in the trees gives this pillow a unique visual effect.

This pillow is so easy to make just get your pillow insert, favorite colors of yarn, hook, and beverage of choice and start and in no time at all you will have one yourself. So I wonder how this pillow would look with white panels, green trees and red edging?????

Can you think of any other color combos???

Now let’s move on to how to create the Winter Wonderland Fir Tree Pillow!!!
