Chocolate Brown Crocheted Pillow Cover

I was browsing in one of Richmond's higher-end fabric and decor shops the other day(Williams and Sherrill), when I came across this pillow on a very Ralph Lauren-esque bedding display. So pretty! I love the deep chocolate color and the cozy texture.

I also love the big buttons on the back and that you basically get two nubby pillows in one.

Almost $70 seems reasonable for this pillow, right? WRONG, because I just taught myself how to crochet! AND I just happen to have a plain chocolate brown pillow hanging out in my bedroom that is crying out for some adornment.

Here is a close up of the front of the pillow.
I'm thinking the front is 9 granny squares, and the back is two plain knitted pieces, one with button holes. Wish me luck!

Good Luck! I've tried knitting before, but never crochet. Be sure to let us know how it turns out!
