This cozy pillow has a deep pile like a shag rug. The lamb stitch is formed with simple crochet stitches. A video tutorial for the lamb stitch is embedded in the free crochet pattern on my blog.

Finished Size: Approximately 11.5” (29 cm) square to fit a 12” (30.5 cm) square pillow form.

Gauge: 16 dc = 4” (10 cm). Exact gauge is not critical for this project. Stitches should be close together so pillow form does not show through.
