Netherlee Flower Pillow Crochet Pattern

One of the greatest parts about being a Red Heart Joy Creator is randomly receiving big boxes of yarn from time to time.  It’s like the universe is asking you to be creative and giving you all the tools you need to do so.  Or maybe it’s not really the universe…..and really it’s Red Heart.  Regardless, I’m thankful I get to be a part of the fun!

When I opened my last box of Red Heart goodies, I was thrilled to see some gorgeous Super Save Ombre in pink tones.  With the looooonnnnng color changes featured on the label, I knew making something with lots of stitches working from a center point could really create an amazing effect….thus this stunning flower pillow was started!

The yarn colors just so happened to match my 2 year old daughter’s puppy bedding.  So it seemed fitting that this should be called the Netherlee Flower Pillow, after her.

This pattern features worsted (4) weight yarn.  I used Red Heart Super Saver Ombre.  It calls for size 6.0mm (J/10) crochet hook.

The yarn used in this pattern was provided by Red Heart Yarns.

*This pattern is written in US terms*

*The first stitch of every round is always the same stitch you slipped into at the end of the previous round.  Even if the first instruction states “next” stitch*

*Instructions are written for an 18” pillow (as shown in the photos).  To make a smaller size, simply end after the round (one when you’re working in the back loops) you reach your desired length on is complete.  Do the same on the back side instructions.*

Put your two pieces together on the outside of the pillow form.  SC around the edges to seam the two pieces together.  Your back piece has a few more sts than your front piece, so you’ll have to work an extra stitch in every so often.  Fasten off.  Secure and weave in all ends.

  6. Thank you for sharing your patterns…your creativity is amazing.
    I currently only know how to loom knit, but I plan on learning to crochet within the next year.
    These pattern will definitely help.

    Also, if you don’t mind I would like to try to convert some crochet & or knit patterns to loom knit patterns, but would not do so without your permission and giving you credit for the original pattern.

    Just let me know how you feel about that.

    Again…thank you so much for sharing and all your hard work!!
