My younger son turned 14 this past week. I decided to make him a pillow to go with the Doctor Who Blanket I crocheted him for Christmas.
What’s that? I never showed you the finished blanket? Oops. Let’s rectify that right now. The most recent previous update on the blanket can be found here. Confession: I didn’t have it finished by Christmas. But it was done before the New Year.
Ok. Good. We’re all caught up.
Like I said, I wanted to make a pillow to go with it. I went back to the source of the pattern, Two Hearts Crochet. She had several alternative squares that I hadn’t used the first time around, so I picked two I thought my son would like.

Then I asked him to pose with his favorite side.
This one was finished on time, but just barely. I probably should have taken the time to block it, like I did the blanket squares. And the stuffing could have used a little more finesse, as well. Hmm, maybe I should take it apart and try again.
Well, he seems happy with it, so I guess I’ll let it go for now. I can always change my mind later.
What did I learn from this project? I learned that I am a fan of the texture and look of the corner-to-corner projects, but not so much of the color changes. At least the way mine turned out. If I use this stitch in the future it will most likely be for solid color projects or simple stripes, not for anything with a picture.
Are you a Doctor Who fan? Which square (blanket or pillow) is your favorite?
