Ladder Links Pillow

Ladder Links Pillow Designed By Julie A. Bolduc

This pillow is made with 2 colors of yarn that are carried up one side of the pillow as you work and the ch5 loops are caught in the stitches as you work across the rows. It is fun and easy to make and would make a great addition to any decor.
