Autumn Granny Rose Pillow I

My friend "D" has a birthday next month.
Once she told me how to figure out the colors she loved,
she said "Think Fall".

This is the beginning of a pillow for her birthday:
 This "Spring" colors gal has been thinking of these "Autumn" colors:

Stylecraft yarn in Saffron, Gold, and Copper.
With an "F" hook 3.75 mm.

The pillow will be 3 x 3 for a square.
(three of each color)
It will fit perfect over the little IKEA pillow I like so much.
I'll crochet something funky and different for the back.

Fall is coming...
 ...and so are more roses inspired by the Autumn colors:
The rose is crocheted in-the-round and the pattern can be found here.

(The row with four petals has an extra treble stitch added 
before and after the chain, that is at the top of each petal.)
~
The entire pillow pattern can be found here.

Stay tuned for project updates.

Happy forthcoming colors of the Season!

  5. Lovely colours, and for some reason they make me think of candy ... candy corn or perhaps old-style M&Ms!

    I have one of your Roses on my desk - a purple one. I picked it up the other day and thought of you. :) Hope you have a wonderful crafty Autumn!

  6. Hi, just purchased your pattern to make this. I tried to access the YouTube videos per your link address. It tells me the video is not accessible. Is there a different link or are the videos no longer available? Thank you.
