Roses are red, violets are blue, I love C2C, how bout you? Roses and corner to corner crochet are two of my favorite things! If you love both too, then you will love my latest free corner to corner crochet pillow pattern: the Rose Garden Pillow. This beautiful corner to corner pillow uses corner to corner crochet to create a stunning crochet home decor piece. It’s a great beginner corner to corner crochet pattern to make, and there’s even a matching blanket you can get to go with it!
My biggest inspiration for this design is my Grandma’s Rose garden that she had when I was growing up. At her and my grandpa’s farmhouse, she had a huge garden full of over 30 rose bushes that would bloom each year with the most beautiful flowers. With this corner to corner crochet pillow pattern, I wanted to capture the beauty of roses along with a retro and vintage rose motif pattern. I am so happy with how it turned out!

Work through your crochet pattern much faster
Want to work through your crochet pattern a lot faster than using the graph? Though C2C crochet graphs are super helpful with crochet the pattern, I’ve found that the written pattern helps make things a lot faster! Not only can you see the exact number of stitches that you need, but you don’t have to worry about losing track of what rows you’re on with the graphs.
Isn’t it cool how we can create roses with C2C crochet? For this crochet blanket, you’ll be using basic C2C crochet techniques to create the square. You’ll need to know how to do the basic C2C crochet stitch, made from double crochets, chains, and slip stitches. It also includes color changes. You can do these by either carrying the colors, or by creating yarn bobbins that you join to the square as you need a different yarn color.
If you’re new to C2C crochet, I’ve got a great Beginner’s Guide to C2C Crochet, that walks you through all of the techniques you need to start! It walks you through how to do the C2C crochet stitch, increase and decrease stitches, and has other helpful tips. You can find it here on my blog at: Beginner’s Guide to C2C Crochet.

To make this pillow, you’ll need the following chart pdf that has charts of both the front and the back panels of the pillow. If you prefer written instructions, you can find the line by line written instructions in the discounted premium PDF available in my Etsy and Ravelry shops.
C2C Rose Garden Pillow Pattern:
To begin making the pillow, use the Front Panel chart in the pattern chart pdf above.
To make the back panel, use the Back Panel chart in the pattern chart pdf above until it is finished.
Once both panels are finished, it’s time to assemble them. Start by putting the right sides together of both panels. Choose one side that you would like to leave open to put your pillow form through before sewing it up. Then, seam along the other three edges using your preferred seaming method. I like doing either a sl st seam or the mattress stitch. After the three sides are seamed, turn the pillow case right sides out, and insert your pillow form into the pillow case. Then, using a mattress stitch, seam the last side together with the pillow inside. Fasten off and weave in ends.
