Popcorn & Lace Pillow Pattern


It is romance, Granny and class all together. When the idea was born I knew I wanted to make something in a solid creamy white color to add exactly that; the romance, the comfortable feel of a granny's home and some classy lady style. The combination of popcorn stitches and lace did the trick. My idea was put into action and the result did not disappoint.

The great thing with The Popcorn & Lace Pillow is that it can easily transform into something completely different depending on the choice of colors. Imagine it with multicolored squares in pinks, red to make it bold. Or bright green, lime and pink to make it eclectic. Or why not a spicy okra yellow with a dark grey border for a more modern look. Mix colors like bright blue, orange and white for a Mediterranean feel...Same same but so so different.

The front panel is made up from my Popcorn & Lace Square, a lovely crochet square pattern that works up rather quickly (can be purchased separately here). The backing is made in rows with a simple and gentle lace effect to make the most of the front panel and the contrasting color joining puts the little WOW-factor on it...

The making of this pillow needs a bit of concentration and attention without being too complicated. I would say it is for an improving beginner. If you know all the basic stitches the Step-to-step picture tutorials, charts, diagrams and detailed instructions will do the rest for you (see picture below).

  5. It's very lovely and elegant in white. I could see this worked in many shades of blue or, red and white for Christmas. I just finished a round pillow with some popcorn stitches, a Christmas present. Have a great day. x
