A huge thanks to DMC Crafts for generously providing yarn support for this design! I absolutely loved working with the DMC Nova Vita yarn. It definitely was an arm workout but well worth it! If you prefer an easier yarn, you could go with the Bernat Maker Big yarn although the texture and feel may vary as the fiber contents are different.
Inspiration for the design
I can’t believe it has been a whole YEAR since my hubby and I became home owners, it feels like just yesterday when we were researching all the things and getting ready to go from apartment living to our own house! I am so grateful we are at a stage where we were able to do that and we landed up in a great place with amazing neighbors and I love our house. One of the first yarn packages I received at our new house was from DMC Crafts to give their Nova Vita yarn a try. They sent me 2 skeins of their neutral color and I loved it so much. I made the Simple Seed Coasters with it, you can find the free pattern here. Then I asked for some more yarn in colors that would go with my home decor theme for the living room.
From the moment we got our couches, I knew I wanted to dress them up with my own specially designed modern crochet pillows and here we are a few months later! I am SO excited to finally release this pattern out into the world and I hope you LOVE making it as much as I did!
