Be the Yin to my Yang

Off course, my hubby will be the Yin to my Yang !

But that has nothing to do with today's blog post. :-D

I just want to show you my brand new crochet pattern !

I have always loved Yin Yang -ie stuff.

I love the straight forward shapes, their symmetrie, but also the philosophy behind it; 

Black and white, negative and positive, each other's opposites, heavy and light, and so on.

And I just felt I needed to create something Yin Yang -ie. :-D

So here it is, a Yin Yang Pillow Cover !

I have been working on this design for ages, it was a huge (personal) challenge and I had several moments where I just wanted to give up.  I'm glad I didn't, I just love the end result !

It looks wonderful, just sitting in my rattan garden chair. 

The pillow cover in the pictures was made using Stylecraft Special DK (acrylic yarn) and crochet hook E (3,5 mm). Finished size will be approx. 16.5" x 16.5" (42 x 42 cm), suitable for a slightly smaller pillow insert. (for example 15.75" x 15.75" (40 x 40 cm)

The crochet pattern for this pillow cover is now available in my shops at 

RAVELRY           and           ETSY

Wishing you a nice day, start of the week !

Thanks so much for stopping by to read my blog. :-)

Just adding a few new pictures, these look much more natural, don't you think so too ?
