Summer Garden Granny Pillow

A pillow to match our Norwegian Style Guest Room.
 The pattern is Attic 24's Summer Garden Granny Square found here.

A BIG shout out to Lucy of Attic 24 for sharing her talent, ideas and how-to's!

Here's the back side.
Same pattern for the back, just keep go around and around until desired size.
One row of sc on the outside and then the picot stitch included in the pattern found here.
(Stylecraft Special DK in aspen, lipstick, white, camel, khaki.)
And a heart button enclosure.

And here it sits:
in the guest room for which it coordinates. :-)
It coordinates with that first Granny Rose afghan too:
The Granny Rose pattern is found here.

The colors chosen for the new cushion were taken from these plates:

Our first attempt at rosemaling
(a Norwegian style of folk art painting.)
 Astri's first rosemaled plate from Rosemaling Camp.
 The NVO's first rosemaled plate from Rosemaling Camp.

We are headed there again next month!
Soooooo excited!!!


  1. It's beautiful, Astri :-) I love that Aspen color especially.

  2. What lovely sunny colours you chose for your pillow. I do love a crocheted cushion - much to annoyance of my husband and two sons.

  3. I agree re Aspen, is it not the most gorgeous colour! A beautiful pillow :)

  4. I am in LOVE with your guest room!!!

  5. The pillow fits perfectly in this room. Your rosemaling skills are awsome.
    It is truly an art of it's own. Have a nice week end and Easter.

  6. Those colours go so well with your home decor. Jo x

  7. Very pretty cushion! I hope that you have a great time at Rosemaling! xx

  8. hi Atsri,
