Take the best of easy crochet – bulky weight yarn, a large hook, and single crochets – and add the excitement of ruffling yarn, add them together, and what do you get? This Popover Pillow! Made with Starbella® from Premier® Yarns, this pillow cover works up fast and is SO adorable. We just love it, and you will too! The cover itself is worked in the round. Then the ruffle is made by picking up the individual loops of the ruffle netting. You’ll need a size Q crochet hook and some contrasting yarn to mark the beginning of each round.
Let’s watch the videos and see how its done.
