This 18"x18" (46 cm x 46 cm) pillow is a delight to behold on both sides! On the one side - front, back, you decide - you'll find a field of flowers in a lovely assortment of colors. Each flower is made of three hues, carefully selected to set the individual flower apart, but still play oh so nicely with the others.
The flip side of the pillow - where were we? front? back? they're both so lovely! - is a riot of playful circles. I purposefully paired the delicate floral pattern with this more striking graphic to give a wonderful choice of which to feature in your room. I'm particularly fond of this side of the pillow because each of the circles are different, showcasing the lovely range of hues compiled by the dyer of the wool. Each looks so pretty against the ivory backdrop.
The wool used to make this pillow is a delightful tweed made by Border Mill in England. It is a true tweed, which is to say, it shows saturated color beautifully, but may present as scratchy for some. I would find it perfectly acceptable to use the pillow as a backrest, but would be unlikely to opt to sleep with my face against it. Best to consider it a conversation point accent rather than implement for a deep sleep.
The circles were made using my crocheted pattern called Water Arcade. The flowers were crocheted following the Willow pattern designed by Jan Eaton, which can be found in her book called 200 Crocheted Blocks.
Both sides of the pillow were crocheted using Border Mill Tweed yarn imported from England via Loop of London. The pillow insert is down, which has been encased in a linen shell.
18"x18" (46 cm x 46 cm)
To keep the pert shape of the pillow, all four sides have been closed. If you must clean the pillow, dry cleaning is your best bet given the pillow itself is down, the shell is linen and the exterior is wool.
