Triforce Pillows

I can't believe I nearly forgot to post about these! Better late than never I guess.

I learned a lot while making these. I had originally looked at these and estimated the yardage needed based on knitting. I quickly figured out though that crochet takes a 'lot' more yarn; as easy a crochet is, I can't crochet without looking like I can knitting . It was a nice little thrill finishing each triangle so quickly as it made me feel like I'd finished something, even though it was a piece of a larger project. And I somewhat figured out how to crochet blind as I crocheted the last little bit of seams that I could reach from the inside, after I'd already turned it.

All in all it was a fun project and I enjoyed making them. Explaining to people what they were on the other hand ... let's just say that apparently very few people I talked to have every heard of Zelda, Link, or Final Fantasy.

Pattern: Triforce Pillow by Pam Gabriel
Project Page: Ravelry
Yarn: Caron Simply Soft
Modifications: None intentional


  1. Well, I've heard of all of them ;-)
    Those pillows are cool and I bet they were interesting getting all the corners to meet and block out how you wanted.

  2. I cheated just a wee bit. No blocking since the yarn is acrylic .. so I just sewed them together and washed it to soften it all up.
