Crochet Project: Granny Stripe Pillow

I have been dying to make some crocheted pillows.  I decided for the first one, I would do a granny stripe.  I love it!

Let's get right to the details.

I used the granny stripe tutorial from Lucy of Attic 24 to make the front of the pillow.

Specifically, here is what I used and did:
I used a 16" x 24"pillow form
The yarn I used was Red Heart in Soft White and the colored yarn was all Vanna's Choice.

Materials needed: • 5.00MM crochet hook & 5.50MM crochet hook • Worsted weight yarn- Red Heart Super Saver in Soft White and the colors were all Vanna's Choice yarn
• 16" x 24" pillow form
• An old sweater that is big enough to cover one side of your pillow
• Buttons • Tapestry needle for sewing in the ends 

Gauge: • Make the ch and row 1, if your work matches up to the short side of your pillow form, keep going.  If not, adjust hook size so that it does match or follow Lucy's granny stripe tutorial to get your own ch number and proceed from there.
