This Tapestry Triangles crochet pillow is worked in the round like a granny square, using single crochet through the back loop only.
Crocheting through the back loop helps a bit with the ‘lean’ that you sometimes get when you crochet a really large square. And finishing off with a good blocking will give you a near-perfect square at the end.
I decided to use fabric for the back of the pillow, but you could easily crochet a second panel and join them together. I even went one step further and added a zip but this is completely optional.
Don’t be put off by the thought of sewing the fabric and the crochet together, I have a nifty little technique that will give you a professional-looking finish even if you are not a professional seamstress. A full tutorial with photos on how to attach the fabric is included in the pattern.
