A Mini-CAL by SistersInStitch
The After Effect Pillow
Inspired by The Butterfly Effect CAL 2019; we have created this matching pillow that will help to de-stash yarns you may have left from making your beautiful blanket. The pattern will be released as a free mini-CAL here on our homepage at www.SistersInStitch.com
This pattern is highly adaptable so feel free to make a bigger pillow if you want to.
The After Effect is a lovely scrap yarn pillow designed by Therese Eghult for SistersInStitch. Divided into 3 parts, it ran for as many weeks; starting on May the 9th and ending on the 23rd 2019. The mini-CAL now is completed for this time but it will remain here as a regular pattern so you can join in whenever you wish.
The free pattern, crochet charts and video tutorials will all stay in place.
It is a simplified take on The Butterfly Effect Blanket. For this pattern you will have to know how to make a:

With the help of pictures, video tutorials and crochet charts for every part; we encourage everyone to give it a go. We will be there to answer your questions and show you how.
