Hello Everybody! I just wanted to “lolli-POP” into your news feed to share our next installment of our Halloween Costumes!! I’m a “Sucker” for swirls and vibrant colors! These Candy Swirl Pillows are such a “Sweet Treat” to add to any room of the house!!
See the Lolli-PoPs in the background of our Halloween Costume reveal:
You can see my past years costumes here:
Each year I try to create costumes more epic than the one’s before. This year will be AWESOME!
As I create a series of patterns, each one released leading up to Halloween, they reveal clues to what Nate and I plan to wear!
Follow along with this video tutorial to learn how to make this pillow:
My dad will continue to be the videographer, editor, and photographer for our videos when I move away.
Support YARNutopia today so we can continue to bring you clear, quality crochet tutorials even after I move into my new home!
There will be an added expense of more travel and hopefully this won’t deter our ability to provide consistent videos on a weekly basis.

-This pillow is worked in continuous rounds. Mark your rounds as you go.
-This pillow can be made bigger or smaller by doing more rounds of the repeat or less rounds.
-I used a 16 inch pillow round, but you can stuff it with stuffing or use a smaller pillow insert.

Sl st: slip stitch
SC: Single Crochet
HDC: Half Double Crochet

Round 1: With Color 1, [1 SC, 1 HDC, 2 DC] into the 2nd ch from the hook, pull up a long loop so it doesn’t unravel when you’re working with the next yarn, with color 2, [1 SC, 1 HDC, 2 DC] into same chain as the first color, pull up a long loop, with color 3, [1 SC, 1 HDC, 2 DC] into same chain as the first color. (12 sts)

When you finish Round 13, for each color HDC in next st, SC in next st, Sl st in next 2 sts, fasten off.
On your first circle piece, fasten off with short tails. For your second piece, fasten off 2 colors with short tails and the 3rd color with a long tail for sewing. (See video tutorial for fasten off method instructions)
Sew the 2 pieces together using the whip stitch and inside out, then when you have 1/3 left of your work, flip it right side out and stuff with the pillow. Then sew the rest of the pillow closed. (See video tutorial for visual instructions)
Fasten off, weave in all ends. Enjoy!
