Think Up Pillow Pattern
The Think Up Pillow is a decorative way to display a message you’d like to see or share with the world daily. It is a simple design for a beginner brioche project to learn and master brioche stitches and finish with a statement piece for any room. It is composed of 2 pieces, one worked in 2-color brioche and the other worked in stockinette stitch and joined together with a scalloped crochet border. Words of your choice are stitched onto the pillow using a single crochet chain.
