bernat® bounce back™ pom-pom ring crochet pillow

Fun and bouncy is the perfect way to describe Bernat® Bounce Back™ yarn and the pillows it produces. These quick-to-make pillows use basic double crochet stitches worked in the round for the body, and simple single crochet stitches to seam around a 14" [35.5 cm] pillow form. The addition of plush pom-poms form a fun-tastic ring-around-the-pillow adding a whimsical touch of style to any space.
