Floral Pillow Crochet Technique


When I looked at Crochet Today magazine project for this pillow, I am very amazed at the outcome. I really wanted to make one for home, the living room. Oh no, actually not make one, but need to make a pair of it. But wait, I have more things to knit and crochet along the way! Maybe next time, I will make another one of this pillow :p . Maybe with a different color.

The technique is crochet, I am using 5.5mm hook, with two strands of acrylic yarn. This pattern I would say it is simple to do. Once you know how to make dc (double crochet), trc (treble crochet), it is very easy. I love the looks like a 3D. Don’t you love this pattern too?

Anyway, if you are making this pattern too, please share it with me, I would love to see the outcome too!


The picture is lovely isn’t it? This is taken by my beloved husband. Right now, he is like a pro in taking product shots. He is the one, who took all my product shots in Cotton House Store. Thank you my husband for taking beautiful and great pictures :)
