Cuddlier than your tree

I’ve been little MIA around here recently. But I’m back now! I still managed to release a couple more patterns in that time, and I plan on catching up with post about them soon. But today’s post is for my newest pattern.

It’s one I’m super excited about as I actually started it in late spring. Then it need complete re-working and I had already decided to leave it for next holiday season when a chat with a friend inspired me to take another look and I’m oh so glad I did. I completely love this finished version. Say hello to the Glow Throw Pillow! If you’re as excited as me, you can grab your ad-free printer friendly pdf with both graphs and written instructions for right and left-handed crocheters on LoveCrafts or Etsy right now!

This make it the official start of my Glow Collection. The Glow Garland was the first released and this was designed to coordinate perfectly. I plan on adding more to this collection in future. Now is your perfect time to get a start on some new decor while there’s still time before Christmas and then add more next year. I will be aiming to release more of the collection earlier in the year to have more time to get them done ahead.

For this year however, both this cushion cover and the garland work up quick so it’s not too late to refresh your home’s holiday look!

Just like the Glow Garland, this is easy to adapt to suit your colour scheme, simply use your preferred colour instead of the blue. If you really want to personalize it, you could even play with any or all of the bulb base, cord and background colours. I did the back of my cushion in the same white as the front, but I was very tempted to use the blue from the bulb (note: if you choose to do this, it will take more yarn than indicated for the bulb colour).

Can I just take a second to gush about how much I love the garland and throw pillow together?

I’m so looking forward to where expanding this collection will take me. Throw blanket? Tree skirt? Bib? Stocking? Placemat? Who knows! If you have an idea you’d love to see added, let me know in the comments. I’d love to add more themed Christmas collections too, so if you have an idea for another them I’d love to hear that too!

I create what I love, and hopefully other people will love it too. But I also love hearing other people’s ideas and sometimes that cues something in my brain and bring out something amazing I never would have thought possible (more in that vein coming when I do the post for the Panda Blanket from my Cozy Critter Collection). So any ideas you have, I’d love to hear!
