Several years ago, during my daily reading of the Craft Blog I came across this giant Granny Square Blanket Tutorial by the purl bee. I was absolutely mesmerized by the color selection and amazed to see a granny square project I actually liked. At the time, I didn’t need a blanket, but I did have an old throw pillow that needed some sprucing up.
I basically followed the tutorial on the purl bee, but played around a bit with colors. In order to maximize the versatility of this pillow (and because I couldn’t decide on only one color scheme) the two sides of the pillow use different colors and a different pattern. Which do you prefer?
