Lyn’s Rose Garden Pillow Part 2

Lyn’s Rose Garden Pillow Part 2

Lyn’s Rose Garden Pillow is a free crochet along.

Lyn’s Rose Garden Pillow Part 2 is a crochet pattern to make a pillow covered in roses – some of the stitch work is easy, and some more challenging, but the end product is worth the effort.

The pattern was especially designed for a very special friend of mine, who loves roses, any shade of pink, crochet, bubbly chocolate and yarn.  The pillow is a birthday gift for her, and although no longer a surprise, she will get it in November when it is her birthday.

NOTES & TIPS

  • My pattern uses US terminology
  • Crochet skill level – confident beginners/intermediate
  • I have also included helpful hints along the way, and are in italics and for the trickier bits there are short video clips
  • I start my new rows with a standing stitch, if you are not comfortable with making one then you can replace with a slip knot and the required number of chains (i.e. chain 3 for a dc and chain 2 for an hdc)
  • Stitches and chains for the corners are given separately to stitches per side
  • Rounds with multiple stitches have a total number of stitches given, but this excludes corner stitches and chain spaces
  • *.* / **.** indicates a repeat of a combination of stitches by a given number of times
  • [] indicates a corner combination of stitches
  • Use your stitch marker as often as you can, to help with stitch counting
  • Have fun with this pattern

SPECIAL STITCHES AND TECHNIQUES

***THERE IS A VIDEO TUTORIAL RIGHT AT THE END THE POST***

If you do not need to watch the entire video – I have made a short video showing how to make the leaves and the rosebud ⇓

PATTERN – PART 2

FIRST RING OF LEAVES

Round 23:

Helpful hint: work in front of ch 3 from round 22, which is above the point of the petal formed over the past several rounds.

Using colour (B), start with a standing 4 tr cl st in 1st sk st of any 2 sk sts from round 22 (above large petal point),

*4 tr cl st into 1st sk st from rnd 22, ch 4, 4 tr cl st into same sp, ch 2, sk next st, sc into next 6 sts, ch 2, sk next st, make a 4 tr cl st into sk st from rnd 22, ch 4, 4 tr cl into same sp, ch 2, sk next st, sc into next 6 sts, ch 2*, rep *.* 7 more times, cut yarn, nj and weave in ends

Stitch count: 32 x 4 tr cl, 16 x ch 4 sps, 32 x ch 2 sps, 96 sc per round

Total stitch count: 126 (excluding chains)

FIRST RING OF ROSEBUDS

Round 24:

Helpful hint: pull the chain 3 forward between the two leaves to work the rosebud.

Using colour (D), start in the 1st sc from previous row immediately AFTER any set of leaves with a standing sc, sc into next 5 sts, *ch 2, make a 6 dc popcorn into the ch 3 from round 22,  then make (2 sc, 2 hdc, 3 dc) into ch 4 from round 23, ss into ch 3 from round 22, directly below the last dc just made, ch 4, ss into the ch 3 from round 22 (on the other side of the popcorn – we are creating a space to make the 3rd petal), then ch 1 and make (4 hdc, 2 sc) into ch 4 space just created, ss into ch 4 from round 23 (on the left side of the petal), ch 2, sc into next 6 sts*, rep *.* 15 more times, omitting the last 6 sc sts, cut yarn, nj and weave in ends.

Stitch count: 16 x rosebud repeats {6 dc popcorn, 4 sc, 6 hdc, 3 dc, ch 1, 3 x ss, ch 4 sp}, 32 x ch 2 sps, 96 sc per round

Total stitch count: 96 (excluding chains and rosebud repeats)

TRELLIS

Helpful hint: please ignore the ch 1 at the beginning of my rows as it does not count as a stitch, I sneak it in, so that we can make a “normal” starting stitch and do not need to cut yarn and start with a standing stitch – so less weaving in, just remember to check your stitch count and you will be fine.

Helpful hint: remember to skip the “hidden” double crochet stitches behind the leaves.

Round 25:

Using colour (A), start with a standing *fpdc around any 1st 4 tr cl st (41st leaf) from round 23, ch 2, tr between (between the leaves – work at the back of the rosebud), ch 2, fpdc around 2nd 4 tr cl (2nd leaf), sk dc “hidden” behind the leaf, fptr around next 6 dc’s from round 22, sk last dc “hidden” behind leaf* rep *.* 15 more times, ss into 1st fpdc.

Stitch count: 32 fpdc, 96 fptr, 32 x ch2 sps, 16 tr per round

Total stitch count: 144 (excluding chains)

Round 26:

Ss into ch 2 sp, ch 1, *dc 2 into ch 2 sp, dc into tr, dc 2 into next ch 2 sp, dc into next 8 sts* rep *.* 15 more times, ss into 1st dc.

Stitch count: 208 dc per round

Round 27:

Ch 1 (does not count as a st) *2 sc into same st, sc into next 25 sts*, rep *.* 7 more times, ss into 1st sc.

Stitch count: 216 sc per round

Round 28:

Ch 1, dc into same st, dc into next 215 sts, ss into 1st dc.

Stitch count: 216 dc per round
