Pink Cosmos Pillow

I made these 4 flower squares a few months ago and was thinking of making a blanket.  Lately I've been interested in trying to make a pillow, and decided that's what they will become!  The flower square is from the book Flower Granny Squares by Margaret Hubert.  It's the Pink Cosmos pattern.  I used Patons Grace yarn in the colors ginger, pink, and natural with a 3.25 mm hook.  Around each square I used size 10 thread to crochet a border.

Here is the back of the pillow.

To make the pillow I bought one yard of fabric and cut two pieces in a 10" square.  Then sewed the two together leaving about a 4" opening.  I turned it inside out and filled it with stuffing, then finished sewing up the rest.  The front and back are also crocheted together with thread. 


  1. What a great post! Absolutely loved the design and colour scheme of the pillow. I will be trying this out for myself however seems quite complicated so may take a few tries before I can knit it as fine as yours.

  2. My grand ma was so great for this type of DIY works. I haven't seen this type of nice work for a long time.

    Thanks for sharing.

  3. I have got to try and make this pillow. I just posted on my blog a pillow that I am currently working on and it needs something.
    Now I know what. Thanks for showing us how.
    I love it.

  4. I think I have never seen such blogs ever before that has complete things with all details which I want. So kindly update this ever for us. Hungarian goose down pillow
