Reminiscent of a Leonid Afremov painting, the Afremov Pillow crochet pattern will guide you to make your own little piece of art for your home or space. The pillow front is worked in rounds while the top and back buttoned plackets are completed in rows. The flowers are then worked on the right side of the pillow front and around each buttonhole.

The thoroughly tested pattern includes:
~complete materials list including colors/quantitites of yarn used for both samples
~stitch abbreviations (US terms), special stitches and notes sections
~written pattern for making pillow front, buttoned closure pillow back
~additional photos for help with flowers, and assembly of cushion cover (no need to print to complete the pattern as written)
