I’m really excited to share this project with you all today because it uses a technique that I have been wanting to try for a long time! The technique is finger crochet or hand crochet, and it’s basically the process of crocheting with your hands instead of with a hook.
When I first saw this amazing Giant Chunky Yarn, I was excited to make something with it, but it was too big for even my largest hook. Hand crochet to the rescue! I had a lot of fun learning the basics of hand crochet (hint: If you know how to crochet with a hook, you really already know how to crochet with your fingers!).
Now I have all kinds of ideas for hand crochet! Giant chunky blanket, anyone?? 😀
For my first project, I wanted to do a smaller project, and I came up with a simple flower pillow. It is really amazing to work with this giant yarn, by the way. Even though the flower pillow is really only four rounds, the finished pillow is about 20″ wide! Amazing, right?
If you want to give hand crochet a try and make yourself a flower pillow too, then you can head over to the Darice blog to grab the free pattern. There’s even a little video there to help you figure out how to put it together.

Happy Crocheting and Happy Making!
