Saint Jo Pillow by Erin Medley

The Saint Jo Pillow was designed with the Saint Joseph River in mind. The cabled pattern resembles ripples in the river water. If you are looking to add some classic cables to your home décor, this pillow is perfect!  

The Designer: Erin Medley

Erin is the owner of Crochet Medley, and the Publishing Assistant at Happily Hooked Magazine. A born and raised Michigander, she’s a military wife, and mother of two. Some of her favorite things to crochet are hats, cowls, and amigurumi. Crochet was introduced to her as a pre-teen, but became an obsession in 2008 when her son was born, so she opened a little shop to bring others joy! When she isn’t working with yarn, Erin enjoys her two fur babies, hockey, scrapbooking, coloring with the kids, baking, Star Wars, beading, reading, and watching true crime books or shows.
