No matter if these pillows are used in the house or outside, if making with the material list provided you will have a big pop of color that makes you smile. These are bright and cheery. I love them and I love the cotton yarn.

h yay another project with Bernat cotton yarn. Love that yarn. My patio certainly can use a little face lift, but with no money in the budget this year, I can use my yarn stash and crochet these beautiful pillows and toss them on the wicker patio furniture. Its the time of the year for patio parties.

My patio furniture is just plain dark green or drab white, so they definitely need a little pop of color. These pillows will be just the thing to grab when Im out on my deck, book in hand, enjoying a nice summer day. Who am I kidding? Ill still be on my chaise lounge, but Ill be crocheting as usual.

More than the pattern, I am loving the colors selected to crochet these pillows. I love color and these scream "Summer Time". I like using cotton yarn in my projects because it is easier to work with. Right now, I have no patio but I can sure use these in the house also.

These look like fun pillows to make. I like that they are made with cotton yarn so you can wash them when needed. I would probably make them into stash buster pillows and use whatever leftover yarns I happened to have, and would probably make my own pillow forms for inside.

I like these patio pillows because of the bright colored stripes and the mix of shapes. I only wonder how colorfast they would be outdoors? Obviously you would not leave them outside all the time, but I wonder if there is a fabric protectant spray you could put on there to guard against sun fading? Otherwise, these are super cute!

I agree, these brightly colored pillows in all these shapes are definitely winners! I don't know of a fabric protectant that would keep them sun-proof outside but I can sure see these in a multi-whites or neutral sunroom. They would sure add a non-stop splash of color!

How can I print the pattern without all the side stuff???

Use some inexpensive, yet sturdy yarn. If the pillow becomes wet or dirty toss it in a net bag and wash with mild detergent on a gentle cycle. Dry on a low heat setting or dry outdoors,,, especially where there is a nice breeze,,,, keep out of the sun to deter fading.

These are so cute but very a very poor idea for outside.

These are really cute and summer looking but if they got wet outside on a patio they would be ruined.
