Crochet Pattern: Simple Seed Stitch Pillow

Ikea Poang chair with grey and wine striped pillow

Recently I got a new Ikea chair to replace the old rump-spring chair in my office. And then, of course I needed a couple of new pillows for the chair. Rather than design two separate pillows I decided to let one pillow do double duty by creating coordinating designs on each side.

This simple seed stitch pillow has narrow stripes on one side and a bold asymmetric stripe on the other. It’s a good just-beyond-beginner project (for yourself or for your crochet students).
