There were a bunch of colorful roses laying around...
so a white pillow was crocheted for a place to "store" them for future projects .
A white pillow with white heart buttons that is...
Rose pattern can be found here.
Pillow made with Red Heart in white.
Use an "I" (5.5 mm) hook
Root around for a pillow.
make a chain the width of the pillow.
your first stitch will be in the second ch from the hook.
It's that simple stitch that I love:
1 sc and 1 dc in the same stitch then skip a stitch,
and keep repeating to end.
(No turning chains.)
Keep crocheting until the pillow cover is long enough
to wrap all the way around the pillow.
See, no turning chains and edges look good.
on second to last row: sc across, but ch 3 and skip two stitches for button holes
or however many you need to fit the chosen button.
last row, sc crochet across again and 3-4 sc in button hole.
Should look like this:
Fold in half and sew two sides together leaving button hole side open.
Sew button on inside of opposite side from button hole side.
Crochet roses and place in desired pattern.
Stitch the roses onto the cover.
Stuff the cover with the "rooted around" pillow.
And there you have it:
Rose storage on display. :-)
