Project Instructions

step 1Use the following abbreviation guide as you work.

Gauge:
15 SC x 19 rows = 4" x 4"

Abbreviations:
ST = Stitch
CH = Chain
SC = Single Crochet
DC = Double Crochet
SC2TOG = Single Crochet 2 Stitches Together (single crochet decrease)
step 2Measurements:
Made to fit a 12" x 12" pillow form.

Notes:
Pillow is worked in two pieces and then crocheted together. Each piece is worked back and forth in rows.
CH 1 at the beginning of each row does not count as a stitch.
Use picture as guide for flower color changes (repeat pattern Pink, Purple, Blue).
step 3Front:
Ch 48
Row 1: SC in second CH from hook and in each CH across, CH 1, turn. (47 SC)
step 4Rows 2-4: SC in each SC across, CH 1, turn. (47 SC)
step 5Row 5: SC in first 8 SC, *(changing to Hot Green SC, CH 9, SC, CH 10, SC, CH 9, SC) in next SC, changing to Soft Ecru SC in next 9 SC; repeat from * 2 times (changing to Hot Green SC, CH 9, SC, CH 10, SC, CH 9, SC) in next SC, changing to Soft Ecru SC in last 8 SC, CH 1, turn. (63 SC + 4 sets of loops) See Figure 1.
step 6Row 6: SC in first 8 SC (keeping CH loops to the front of work) skip first SC of loops, SC2TOG across middle 2 SC of loops, skip last SC of loops, *SC in next 9 SC, (keeping CH loops to the front of work) skip first SC of loops, SC2TOG across middle 2 SC of loops, skip last SC of loops; repeat from * 2 times, SC in last 8 SC, CH 1, turn. (47 SC) See Figure 2.
step 7Row 7: SC in each SC across, CH 1, turn. (47 SC)
step 8Row 8: SC in first 5 SC, *picking up first loop made from row 5 SC in next SC, skipping middle loop SC in next 5 SC, picking up last loop SC in next SC, SC in next 3 SC; repeat from * 2 times, picking up first loop made from row 5 SC in next SC, skipping middle loop SC in next 5 SC, picking up last loop SC in next SC, SC in last 5 SC, CH 1, turn. (47 SC) See Figure 3.
step 9Row 9: SC in each SC across, CH 1, turn. (47 SC)
step 10Row 10: SC in first 8 SC, *changing to flower color & working thru center loop, work 6 DC in next SC, changing to Soft Ecru SC in next 9 SC; repeat from * 2 times; changing to flower color & working thru center loop work 6 DC in next SC, changing to Soft Ecru SC in last 8 SC, CH 1, turn. (47 SC + 4 groups of 6 DC) See Figures 4 & 5.
step 11Row 11: SC in first 8 SC, CH 1 skipping the 6 DC and pushing them to the front of the work, *SC in next 4 SC, (changing to Hot Green SC, CH 9, SC, CH 10, SC, CH 9, SC) in next SC, changing to Soft Ecru SC in next 4 SC, CH 1, skipping the 6 DC and pushing them to the front of the work; repeat from * 2 times, SC in last 8 SC, CH 1, turn. (47 SC + 3 sets of loops)
step 12Row 12: SC first 13 SC (keeping CH loops to the front of work) skip first SC of loops, SC2TOG across middle 2 SC of loops, skip last SC of loops, *SC in next 9 SC (keeping CH loops to the front of work) skip first SC of loops, SC2TOG across middle 2 SC of loops, skip last SC of loops; repeat from * 1 time, SC in last 13 SC, CH 1, turn. (47 SC)
step 13Row 13: SC in each SC across, CH1, turn. (47 SC)
step 14Row 14: SC in first 10 SC, *picking up the first loop SC in next SC, skipping middle loop SC in next 5 SC, picking up the last loop SC in next SC, SC in next 3 SC; repeat from * 1 time, picking up the first loop SC in next SC, skipping middle loop SC in next 5 SC, picking up the last loop SC in next SC, SC in last 10 SC, CH 1, turn. (47 SC)
step 15Row 15: SC in each SC across, CH 1, turn. (47 SC)
step 16Row 16: SC in first 13 SC, *changing to flower color & working thru center loop work 6 DC in next SC, changing to Soft Ecru SC in next 9 SC; repeat from * 1 time, changing to flower color & working thru center loop work 6 DC in next SC, changing to Soft Ecru SC in last 13 SC, CH 1, turn. (47 SC + 3 groups of 6 DC)
step 17Row 17: SC in first 8 SC *(changing to Hot Green SC, CH 9, SC, CH 10, SC, CH 9, SC) in next SC, changing to Soft Ecru SC in next 4 SC, CH 1 skipping the 6 DC and pushing them to the front of the work, SC in next 4 SC; repeat from * 2 times, (change to Hot Green SC, CH 9, SC, CH 10, SC, CH 9, SC in next SC, changing to Soft Ecru SC in last 8 SC, CH 1, turn. (47 SC + 4 sets of loops)
step 18Rows 18-53: Repeat Rows 6-17, three times.
step 19Rows 54-58: Repeat Rows 6-10.
step 20Row 59: SC in first 8 SC, CH 1 skipping the 6 DC and pushing them to the front of the work, *SC in next 9 SC, CH 1 skipping the 6 DC and pushing them to the front of the work; repeat from * 2 times, SC in last 8 SC, CH 1, turn. (47 SC)
step 21Row 60: SC in each CH and SC across. (47 SC)
step 22Rows 61 & 62: SC in each SC across. (47 SC)
step 23Back:
Ch 48.
Row 1: SC in second CH from hook and in each CH across, CH 1, turn.
step 24Rows 2-62: SC in each SC across, CH 1, turn.
step 25Finishing:
Holding both back and front pieces together with wrong sides facing each other, join Soft Ecru at the top of the pillow, SC thru both thicknesses evenly around, working 3 SC in each corner stitch.
Insert pillow when you have crocheted around 3 sides, then continue working SC STS evenly thru both thicknesses, SL ST to first SC and fasten off leaving a long tail for sewing. Sew in all remaining ends.
