Flowers are so restful, aren’t they?
Although we’ve looked both at floral patterns and pillows separately before, I can’t really remember the last time we went over a combination of the two. So, I think it’s high time we did. Therefore here are some free crochet patterns for a flower pillow, which will get you going in this dorection. Of course, while beautiful in themselves, these patterns are also great starting points for your own customizations and developments. Indeed, as with flowers themselves, flower pillows are a limitless canvass to explore stitches, textures and colors.

While we may want to take on ever more advanced and fancy techniques, simplicity is sometimes the very best solution. To this end, we can take simple shapes worked on the round, enclosed and then modified by stuffing. Later, other accents that are also worked on the round can be added. Consequently, we end up with a lovely, lobed 18″ flower pillow.
