Neck Pillow Crochet Pattern – Rolling Hills Pattern
Crochet is a timeless craft and has been around for centuries. It’s no wonder we’ve found so many uses for it! One of the most popular crochet projects are blankets because they are large, but you can also make smaller items like this pillow.
Seriously, what do you need to feel accomplished as a person? A home that feels like it belongs to your personality and style, an office space where you can be productive, and the ability to nap anywhere. That last one is especially important for those of us who love a quality nap.
I mean, who doesn’t want a cozy pillow that is perfect for napping anytime and everywhere? The answer: NO ONE!
