QUICK CLICK

For the third part; we are going to frame our joined medallions and then finish our pillows by assembling the two pieces together. 

As everyone has a different tension but for reference Tess front piece (parts 1 and 3) measures approximately 37×37 cm (unblocked), and back piece 35×35 cm. This size difference will sort itself out when having both pieces crocheted together and will help stretch out the stitches nicely.

After finishing Part 3 your front should be slightly larger than your back piece so that the squaring out part will come down and dress the sides of the pillow.

We suggest that you cut the thread after finishing each round and close with an invisible join to the second stitch for the neatest finish.

The Assembly

Now it’s time to join the front and back piece. Place them with their wrong sides against each other. 

With the front piece facing you, crochet as followed:

rnd 7 (F) – begin in any ch2-sp and work through both pieces

*(2 sc) in the ch2-sp, sc in each st; rep from * til end 

per side – 83 sc

P3 - Assembly

When you have worked about 30 sc on the final side; put the pillow insert inside of your case and then continue crocheting it closed. To make the final bit easier – use stitch markers evenly distributed along the sides to keep the front and the back piece together while you crochet. 

P3 - Assembly
Work all stitches through both pieces.
Tip! Place stitch markers on the final side to make it easier to crochet when the pillow insert is placed inside.

You have finished The After Effect Pillow, well done!
