Sometimes it's fun to mix things up a little though so with the Square Pillow pattern, I added some color to the arrows. Don't you just love that about crochet? Simple little adjustments of color can bring on a whole new look and feel.
Wide stripes, thin stripes, color here, color there...
gradient colors, contrasting colors, rainbow colors...
Imagine all the fun to be had while crocheting yourself a pillow!
