Step 1
Use the following abbreviation guide as you work.

\nGauge:
\n15 SC x 19 rows = 4" x 4"

\nAbbreviations:
\nST = Stitch
\nCH = Chain
\nSC = Single Crochet
\nDC = Double Crochet
\nSC2TOG = Single Crochet 2 Stitches Together (single crochet decrease)
Step 2
Measurements:
\nMade to fit a 12" x 12" pillow form.\n

\nNotes:
\nPillow is worked in two pieces and then crocheted together. Each piece is worked back and forth in rows.
\nCH 1 at the beginning of each row does not count as a stitch.
\nUse picture as guide for flower color changes (repeat pattern Pink, Purple, Blue).
Step 3
Front:
\nCh 48
\nRow 1: SC in second CH from hook and in each CH across, CH 1, turn. (47 SC)
Step 4
Rows 2-4: SC in each SC across, CH 1, turn. (47 SC)
Step 5
Row 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 6
Row 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 7
Row 7: SC in each SC across, CH 1, turn. (47 SC)
Step 8
Row 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 9
Row 9: SC in each SC across, CH 1, turn. (47 SC)
Step 10
Row 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 11
Row 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 12
Row 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 13
Row 13: SC in each SC across, CH1, turn. (47 SC)
Step 14
Row 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 15
Row 15: SC in each SC across, CH 1, turn. (47 SC)
Step 16
Row 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 17
Row 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 18
Rows 18-53: Repeat Rows 6-17, three times.
Step 19
Rows 54-58: Repeat Rows 6-10.
Step 20
Row 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 21
Row 60: SC in each CH and SC across. (47 SC)
Step 22
Rows 61 & 62: SC in each SC across. (47 SC)
Step 23
Back:
\nCh 48.
\nRow 1: SC in second CH from hook and in each CH across, CH 1, turn.
Step 24
Rows 2-62: SC in each SC across, CH 1, turn.
Step 25
Finishing:
\nHolding 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.
\nInsert 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. \nSew in all remaining ends.
