Ruffle Rose Pillow

This is an easy project but for me, it was not a fun project. It was boring and large for the amount of fun. I am glad it is done. It was made with Jamie Classic and Red Heart Monet using the pattern found at Red Heart. It is a free pattern. My hook sizes were one size larger than asked for in the pattern as I crochet tightly.

I did not go all the way to the edge with the flower ruffles. I wanted the flower to stand out more. I also made my own type of back for the pillow. I did a spiral in dc stitches. I used the same colors that were in the Monet color. As I said this pillow is large, huge actually, I will be keeping this one for myself on my bed.

I used the reverse sc or crab stitch to put the two pieces together. I love the rope look of this stitch when it is done.

With these last two projects I completed I still have these projects on my hooks and needles at this time. The scrap wrap is being made with the scraps from the Granny Daughter Blanket.

I know what you mean about a project that is going okay but is just not fun to work. The Monet is a pretty yarn though. What a great idea to use rsc to assemble. I'll have to use that sometime.
