Daisy square pillow


Voila! The Daisy Square Pillow is finished! And I am stupid proud. :D

It came out just the way I wanted. And now I can't wait to start on my next crochet pillow... I am planning on making a turorial later, but for now just some facts and eye candy.

Yarn: Merino wool 8 ply, 11 different colours.
Hook: 4 mm (EUR)
How much: White about half a 50g bundle, light pink for joining and edging about 3/4 of a 50g bundle. All the other colours about 1/3 of a 50g bundle.

Squares: 28
Pillow measures: 35x45 cm 
Joining method: Double crochet seam on the facing side. 
Edging: 1 row of granny edging, 1 row of double crochet.
I hand stitched the crocheted part onto a pillow edge to edge.



And a bit of square potpurri...

A hugging test... mmmm, yeah. Feels good! I don't want to let go!!!
And here is the pillow in its right environment, on Nelly's bed on top of the bed cover which was the initial inspiration.
Ciao!

  4. Wow! Jättesnygg kudde! Färgerna är härliga :)

    Måla stenar är så enkelt - bra pysselprojekt med barn. Jag har använt helt vanlig hobbyfärg från Panduro.

    Ha det gott!
