Off White Ruffle Rose Pillow


Although this pattern is called the Off White Ruffle Rose Pillow, you do not have to make it the same color. I love the simplicity of the pillow case and it could fit in any decor theme you wish. This is an intermediate skill level so beginners you can try your hand at this, the practice will do you good. Once again I have taken this pattern from my favorite site:

AllFreeCrochet.com

Crochet Hook: H/8 or 5 mm hook
Yarn Weight: (4) Medium Weight/Worsted Weight and Aran (16-20 stitches to 4 inches)
Pillow measures 16” diameter (not including ruffle) x 3” deep.

Materials:
RED HEART® “Soft Yarn®”: 4 balls 4601 Off White.
Crochet Hooks: 5mm [US H-8] and 5.5mm [US I-9].
Yarn needle, stitch markers, 16” diameter round pillow form.
GAUGE: Rounds 1–5 = 4½” using smaller hook. CHECK YOUR GAUGE. Use any size hook to obtain the gauge.

NOTE: Front is made first; then spiral ruffle is added. Back and sides are then made in one piece. The two pieces are joined, and pillow form inserted to finish pillow.
