White Rose Pillow



Front & Back

Remember the originals?

I think I got pretty darn close.  My pictures just don't show the squares as well.
Get out your crayolas.  I'm about to tell you where to find the patterns for the squares if you'd like to make one or two (or three or four) for yourself.

I got the front block patterns out of these two books.  For the front, I used a sport weight white yarn, and worsted yarn for the green & pink.  I used an F hook.

200 Crochet Blocks
The Rose Blocks: #51
One of the White Blocks:  #165

Beyond the Square Crochet Motifs
One of the White Blocks:  #96
Two of the White Blocks: #118

The back is made with all worsted yarn and an H hook.  The pattern I used for the back is one of Chris Simon's free patterns called Double-Framed Lace.  You can find it HERE.

I love the way this turned out.  I couldn't be more pleased (unless I had made five of them).  But you can find free patterns to use that would be just as nice if you don't have these books.  I think the Rose Blocks are pretty much exactly what was used on the original pillows I showed you from Ravelry, and I just picked some others that I liked for the rest.

I gave away all the other flower pillows I made, so this one is MINE, MINE, MINE!  I like it best anyway.
