Granny Square Pillow With Crochet Flower Design

What are some of the most popular types of crochet projects you can think of? How about granny squares, crochet flowers and baby projects? In this pattern, you get all three of these project types combined.

This pillow pattern gives you the opportunity to utilize a classic granny square pattern, and then add a vibrant three-dimensional flower as an embellishment. Fancy looped fringe completes the look, along with an eye-catching fabric pillow lining.

The designer of this pattern, Lori Jean Karluk, suggests using the finished pillow as an accent in a baby’s nursery decor. That’s a fantastic use for it, but you need not feel limited to using it as a baby project. If you recolor the design, it would make a lovely throw pillow for decorating just about any bedroom, window seat or cozy chair in your home.
