Lyn’s Rose Garden Pillow Part 5

Lyn’s Rose Garden Pillow Part 5

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

Lyn’s Rose Garden Pillow 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.

Lyn’s Rose Garden Pillow 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.
