Oh how love this pillow! ? I must admit I have been just a teensy bit obsessed with Fall projects this year! ? Even though it is still hot in Kansas, my house is already bedecked with all the Fall things!

I have been fully immersed (i.e. buried ?) in the design process and roll out for my Crochet a Long for the Autumn Rhapsody Blanket but I just had to make this pillow!

A Red vintage pick up truck and pumpkins join together for this Fall themed pillow which will be the perfect addition to your home decor — this pillow has all the Fall Feels! You can just smell that pumpkin bread in the oven, can’t you??

I used Caron Simply Soft yarn* for this project as I had some colors left over from my Love Bear Rainbow Baby Blanket and my Easter C2C Blanket. The colors are really vibrant and perfect for Fall with just the right amount of soft sheen. However, any yarn you have on hand or like to use would be just fine for this project!

I used the Mini C2C technique for this project which is corner to corner in hdc. If you have never worked corner to corner before head on over to these tutorials to get you going –

And, if you need help in learning how to make a C2C Crochet Rectangle shape I have a complete photo and video tutorial for you that will show you how to decrease on one side while continuing to increase on the other!

If you have worked the regular double crochet C2C but have never made C2C with half double crochet, the following tutorial will help —

Mini C2C (hdc) technique

My original design had the background in plaid rather than checked but it was just too busy so I changed it up and went with a checkered background. I really like the effect – modern yet classic!

The back panel of the pillow is just a plain hdc C2C rectangle to match the size of the front panel. Use any color from the front panel you like.

There is no need to sew the two panels together at the end or add a border — you will be crocheting the panels together with easy single crochet and chains — fast and simple!

If using Fiber Fill, leave enough room to fill your pillow!
