The Sliding Doors Throw Pillow is the quickest way to show off the Hue + Me palette in your home. This accent pillow is so fast to crochet and the fact that the wrong side will never show means you don’t * technically * have to weave in your ends! Win-win!

This is such a simple and easy gift that it’s almost a no-brainer. The giant tassels make this fun and cozy while the color blocking keeps it modern and youthful.

This is the perfect project to practice your tapestry crochet if you’ve never tried it before. It’s a wonderful technique that allows you to seamlessly switch from one color to the next and can be used on pretty much any crochet project that uses more than one color.

I love the juxtaposition of the sharp lines with the fluffy tassels on this design. It would make a beautiful addition to any couch, bed, or chair, and you could even scale it up and create a large floor pillow!

Notes: Pillow is worked flat in back and forth rows in two panels which are then seamed. Turn at the end of each row. While traditionally double crochet uses 3 turning chains at the beginning of each row, this pattern only uses 1 chain which keeps the edges cleaner and easier to seam without leaving holes. To change color, work the last yarn over of the previous stitch with the new color. When changing to a contrast color, the main color will be “carried” by simply laying it on top of the row below and crocheting over it in order to bring this yarn along to the point where it will be used again (this technique is known as tapestry crochet). Chart is provided for colorwork. Chart is read right to left on odd rows and left to right on even rows. Pillowcase is slightly smaller than pillow insert so it can be stretched taught over it.

Panels (make 2):

With MC, ch 41. Refer to chart for colorwork or follow instructions below. Chart is read right to left for odd numbered rows and left to right for even numbered rows.

Tassels:

Cut eighty 12”/30.5cm lengths and eight 18”/46cm lengths of CC2. Divide the 12”/30.5cm lengths into four groups of 20. Tie each bundle at the middle point with one of the 18”/46cm lengths. Fold each bundle in half so that the tie is at the tip of the loop created with the fold.

Tie crosswise around each folded bundle about 1”/2.5cm below the top of the fold with the remaining 18”/46cm lengths. Wrap the tails of the ties around and around the bundles and then thread them inside and down the middle of the bundles with a tapestry needle. Tie the tops of the tassels onto the four corners of the pillow and knot to secure. Thread the tails inside and down the middle of the tassels using a tapestry needle. Trim tassels to desired length.
