How To Make

Front Panel – C2C:
 Using Light Blue –
This panel is worked with the corner to corner method. If you are unfamiliar some basic notes and instructions are included below. Please use in conjunction with the chart.

Start with a ch6 and work a tr in the 4th from the hook. Work a tr in the next two stitches. This makes your first ‘square’

Turn your work and ch6, tr in the 4th from the hook and the next two stitches, then ss to the space between the ch3 and the first tr on your first square. Ch3 and work 3tr in the same space.

Repeat the above for all the rows where you need to increase. You will work a ch3 and 3 tr into each square and you will ch6 at the end of each row as described above to increase.

Follow the chart attached. Each square on the chart represents a crochet square so you can tick them off as you go.

Once you have reached the halfway point and have done your final increase you are ready to decrease as below.

Instead of ch6, turn your work and then ss along the tr and into the space between the ch3 and first tr in that square. Ch3 then work 3tr in the same space. Continue along as you have been doing. You will turn and ss as described at the end of every row until the end. 

BORDER:

Round1: Using Light Blue – join your yarn in any space between two squares (See picture below – I’ve used white on blue to make it clearer). Sc in that space and then ch2.
*sc in the next space between squares, ch2* repeat around until you are back where you starter and ss to the first sc to join.

Back Panel:

Working in rows start with Light Pink and ch 52
In the 3rd ch from the hook work a htr and then in each st across (50)
ch2, turn and work a htr in the same st and each across (50)
You now want to fasten off with your pink and change colour, use the chart below as a guide for colour changes and continue working 2 rows for each colour until the end. You should have a total of 42 rows and 21 coloured stripes.

Change back to Light Blue, work 2 more rows across of htr.
ch3, turn, work a tr in the same st and each across (50)
Work a further 5 rows of tr’s.

Fold this section down so that the blue edge is in line with the first blue stripe down and whip stitch the two edges together. See photo below for a guide, as mentioned this is creating a little pillow fold

Border:
Without turning work 2dc into the edge of each colour stripe, continue along the bottom working 1dc in each st and then back up the other side returning to 2hdc in each colour. Fasten off and weave in ends.

Large Daisy: (make 2)
Using Yellow –
Work 8dc into a magic circle, ss to join (8)
ch1, dc2 in each st around (16)
Fasten off and change to white. Join to any st
ch8, dc in the 2nd ch from the hook and the remaining 6st’s (7) ss to the next st to join
Repeat the above step 15 more times until you have 16 petals. Fasten off and leave a long tail for sewing.

Small Daisy: (make 3)
Using yellow –
Work 8dc into a magic circle, ss to join (8)
Fasten off and change to white. Join to any st.
ch5, dc in the 2nd from the hook and remaining 3 st’s (4) ss to the next st to join
Repeat the above step a further 7 times until you have 8 petals. Fasten off and leave a long tail for sewing.

Assembly:

Sew the daisies onto the c2c front piece; use the photo as a guide for placement.

Next place the front piece on top of the back piece with the right sides facing out and starting at the top edge by the fold join the two sides together with a dc through the stitches on both pieces. Work all the way around 3 sides stopping at the other edge by the fold. Fasten off and weave in all ends.
Just a little tip, you want to have the fold at the bottom of the pillow so it’s hidden when in use.
