Instructions

  • Cluster Stitch
  • Tulip Pillow Top
  • Tulip Stitch
  • Crochet Pillow V Stitch

Step One

Begin by making the front of the pillow, the side that has the tulip stitch pattern.

You can make your flower (cluster stitch) rows all one color or multiple colors, I alternated purple, pink, and yellow

5 dc cluster: (yo, insert in stitch, pull up a loop, yarn over, pull through 2 loops) 5 times, yo, pull through all 6 loops on hook

Start with white yarn

ch 41 (stitch repeat is a multiple of 3+1, +1 for turning ch)

Row 1: sc in 2nd stitch from hook and each stitch across (40 sc)

Row 2: ch 1, turn, sc in each stitch across, change to green yarn in last stitch (40 sc)

Row 3: ch 4, dc in first stitch, [skip 2, (dc, ch 1, dc) in next stitch] repeat to end, change to flower color (purple) (14 v-stitches)

Row 4: ch 2, 5 dc cluster in ch 1 space, [ch 2, 5 dc cluster in next ch 1 space] repeat to end, change to white (14 clusters)

Row 5: ch 1, [sc in top of cluster, 2 sc in ch 2 space] repeat to end, finishing with sc in top of last cluster (40 sc)

Row 6: ch 1, turn, sc in each stitch across, change to green yarn in last stitch (40 sc)

Row 7: ch 4, dc in first stitch, [skip 2, (dc, ch 1, dc) in next stitch] repeat to end, change to flower color (pink) (14 v-stitches)

Row 8: ch 2, 5 dc cluster in ch 1 space, [ch 2, 5 dc cluster in next ch 1 space] repeat to end, change to white (14 clusters)

Repeat rows 5-8 five more times changing the color of the flowers to yellow in the next repeat, then purple, pink, yellow, and purple in the last repeat

Repeat rows 5-6 one more time, do not cut yarn

using white yarn sc all the way around the outside of the pillow front, work 1 sc in each stitch along the top and bottom, 3 sc in the corners, and along each side work 1 sc in each sc row and 2 sc in each dc row

Once you have worked around the entire edge finish off and cut yarn, weave in ends

  • Pillow Back 2

Step Two

Make pillow back

ch 42

Row 1: dc in 4th ch (first 3 ch count as a dc), dc in each stitch to the end (40 dc)

Row 2-22: ch 3 (counts as dc), dc in each stitch to the end (40 dc)

sc all the way around the outside of the square, work 1 sc in each stitch along top and bottom, 3 sc in each corner, and 2 sc in each dc along the sides

do not cut yarn

 

  • Joining Pillow

Step Three

Place the back and front of your pillow together and sc around the outside, working through both layers, once you have worked around 2 or 3 of the sides put the pillow insert in between the layers. continue sc around the edge until you have worked all the way around and the insert is completely enclosed.
