Decorate your home for spring and crochet a pillow with bright daisy granny squares. Our free pattern and photo-tutorial will show you how!
Despite the weird weather, it’s officially spring! It feels more like summer here in NC (I’m ready to turn the AC on!), and my future home of Denver, CO was absolutely pummeled by snow earlier this week. Crazy, crazy, crazy! Now is the time of year when I brag to my family back in Chicago-land, so it’s going to be a little weird when I move to a city that has blizzards in late March.
And moving is SO CLOSE y’all! Last night the hubs and I went to our favorite sushi restaurant for the last time. Ever. We’ve got some other restaurants on the list (Carolina BBQ… *drools*) and we’ll be working our way down as it gets closer and closer to June when we say goodbye f’realz.

Enough about the weather and my restaurant binge — you’re here for my daisy granny square pillow pattern, right? And you’re like, “Damn girl, that’s cool about Denver but please STFU and get to the crocheting!” Amiright?!
Okay, fine. It’s FINALLY time to share my daisy granny square pillow! It was a month ago that I shared the crochet pattern for my modified daisy granny squares, and then I got side-tracked making cute beer cozies for St. Patrick’s Day!
It’s hard to keep my eyes on the ball when there are so many crafts around — and I truly apologize to those of you who’ve been patiently waiting for the daisy pillow pattern!

If you’ve been keeping up with YSC, you may remember seeing the pillow’s front already — I used the daisy granny squares as the example in my join-as-you-go tutorial. For the back, I chose to go with one big, traditional granny square (20 rows!) and rotated between the two colors of yellow and two colors of gray.
This is a pick your destiny pillow, however, and you can choose any back you like! Solid gray? ADORABLE. More daisy squares? LOVE IT. Solid single crochet? YESSS. You do you, GRRL!
Okay, I’ll shut up f’realz now. Let’s get to crochetin’! Before you start, check your crochet stash or hit up JoAnn Fabrics for supplies!
