If you are looking for an unusual throw pillow for your bed or sofa, this is wonderful place to start. The basic circle is worked first, then the ruffles added on the second pass. It is listed as an Intermediate project, but its not that difficult to do. Being a Red Heart Yarn pattern, the entire project can be downloaded for free from their site http// == pillow

This off white ruffle rose pillow has a very feminine look and will definitely spruce up any room to you decide to make it for. Probably more suited for a girl cave or a girls bedroom, but could work in any room. I want to make mine in a pink color or maybe a pink variegated yarn.

This would be neat in a black front with a neon color-changing yarn!

Can't figure out how to make first row of ruffle

I made this and think it's great! However it's a bit bigger than the 16" in description, and I used the yarn and hook recommended. Got a round pillow to recover at Goodwill for $1.99! Looking forward to doing another with a rose color yarn.

I made this one and it turned out very pretty. My grandson was intrigued with the spirals and ran his fingers around from the center all the way out. His comment; cool Grandma

I love it!

Made this for my mom last year for Mother's Day- she loved it!

I just finished the pillow last month. It turned out beautiful and I purchased another pillow form to do another for a gift. The directions can be found on the Red Heart web site in their free pattern section. I actually found it a Micheal's as a freebie. I have to say that my hands really cramped doing the front. It also took me just over 3 weeks to finish it because I could only crochet for a couple of hours at a time. The directions say it can be completed in just 10 hours I just couldn't stick with it that long. 16 inches is a large pillow and with a pre-made foam pillow form it is quite heavy for a pillow. If you get it completed you will be very happy with it as I am. Happy Crocheting... mssewso

No longer available on the Red Heart Website as a free pattern.

I was wrong....I was looking in the wrong place on the Red Heart Website....It IS still available as a free download.

@jstric2 4020785: The original pattern on the Red Heart website links to the 256yd skein of Soft Yarn. Hope this helps! -- Editor of AllFreeCrochet

The pattern does not list YARDAGE of yarn. RH "Soft" comes in two size balls - regular and super -- which is it??? Shouldn't ALL patterns list yarn yardage to allow for yarn substitution? HELP!!

I had no trouble printing out the directions for this pillow. Can't wait to start this project.

I get the picture printed but no instruction printout. Reason?
