MEASUREMENTS

Approx 12″ x 18″ [30 cm x 45 cm].

GAUGE:

20 sc and 20 rows = 4″ [10 cm]. 

Skill level: Beginner

Abbreviations and Glossary (US Terms):

ch – chain
sc – single crochet
bo- bobble stitch

Special Stitches and Techniques:

Bobble stitch: Watch this tutorial for the method I used to change colors with the bobble stitches 
Yarn over, insert hook into the next stitch and pull up a loop. Yarn over, pull through two loops. as if you are doing the first part of a double crochet (DC) (2 loops on the hook);
repeat it until you have 5 HDC on your hook and 1 initial loop (total 6 loops on the hook);
yarn over and pull through all 6 loops (1 loop on the hook – pull pretty tight, so your bobble really pops up); and sc in the next stitch.

Notes: 

  • The pattern is written in US terms.
  • The pattern starts from the bottom and ends at the top 
  • You will work all stitches in beige except the bobble stitches. 
  • You may want to make the pillowcase 0.5 inches smaller than the actual pillow insert. To make sure that your pillowcase fits perfectly without any loose areas, pumps or gaps.
  • You can adjust the dimensions of the pillow by adding or subtracting rows up and down and/or between the two words. Or chains form right and left.
  • Your stitch count throughout the whole pattern will be 85 stitches (You may watch this tutorial and apply it throughout the pattern to help you achieve straight edges
  • For the rows that do not have bobbles you can either work the entire row over your accent color (brown in my case) yarn so that you can pick it up the next row. or you can cut the yarn by the end of each bobble row and reattach it at the start of the next bobble row.

Finishing Touches

  1. Work one last row of sc around the 2 short edges of the two pieces of the pillowcase
  2. Single crochet both pieces together around three edges, insert your pillow and continue with the forth side

See the method I used to single crochet the two pieces together in the video bellow.

Tassels

Finally to make the tassels I used the tutorial in the pictures bellow. Click on the picture to go to a more detailed tutorial.

To attach it to the scarf you are just going to leave a long tail at the top of the tassel tie it tightly to the bottom corners of the pockets/scarf and weave in ends.

Here is another video tutorial for how to make tassels and attach them
