crochet a different shape

thanks for stopping by!

 

the photo of these pillows i saw on etsy and i pinned here.

Vintage Crochet Pattern PDF 257 Triangular Cushion Pillows

the shape of the pillows is unusual and i think it is created by attaching two diamond shapes together. the pattern is for sale on etsy.

 

i wanted to make a similar shape without increasing or decreasing the number of stitches and with only one side to close by sewing or crochet. of course you always have the points where rows begin and end unless you work in a spiral. 

 

while looking for information i found and pinned a tutorial for sewing whimsical pillows and how to make a pyramid sachet.

 

suddenly i remembered that i had pinned a picture of similar shaped toys that a blogger had made ​​for her dogs.

Colorful Pyramid Toys by Lazy Earthlings

on her blog she explains how she has made the little pyramids. she has no crochet pattern, but actually you do not need one,  just look at her drawing and photographs here

 

testing

i started a test project on basis of her information and this is the result: 

crochet pyramid shape on side table

 

it is very easy to do and if you’re like to make a liner you can use your crochet work – before you close it –  as a template on the fabric. 

my pyramid is about 24-25 cm (width and heigth) and i have crochet very tight to create a solid fabric. then i stuffed it with white acrylic yarn. 

the end result is very nice – if i may say so myself – and this size is very suitable for a small child to play and cuddle with or it can be a stylish object in an interior depending on the colors. it is washable, the outside is cotton (phil coton 3 and catania yarn) and the stuffing is acrylic (dries quickly). 

once i have some time i will make a pillow with a mature size, but with different crochet stitches and type of yarn and with a lining. 

 

below are a few pictures. 

i’m curious what you think.

hope to see you soon!

  1. Woop woop this is fantastic! I love the fresh colours and the interesting detail as well as the pattern. This is definitely something I would love to make too. I think Iliaria from IDA interior lifestyle blog also made a pyramid pillow before and then I loved it too!

  2. Super cute and a very original shape for a pillow!!! I love it!! 😉

  3. this is so pretty! I was curious to see what it was, looking at the work in progress pictures on your Facebook ! …and if you make it in a much much smaller scale, with a loop at the top, you can fill it with lavender for scented closets!! ❤

  4. Wonderful! I’ve pinned the same photos and wanted to give it a try too 🙂 You did great!

  5. I like these. They would be fun to make for a child’s bed.

  6. Ohh this is beautiful Elisabeth ….

  7. I love that shape – it is so adaptable! May have to make a couple for the little one’s room!

  8. Wauw! Jouw kleurgebruik is altijd prachtig!

  9. These are so much fun and your color choices are perfect. The shape of these will work perfect when leaning up against a head board as it is shaped where one side can go in the space where the mattress meets the headboard and still maintain its shape unlike regular pillows!!! Fun and stunning at the same time!! Thanks for sharing
