The oversized daisy motif on the Gardener’s Pillow makes for a whimsical, colorful addition to an outdoor seating area, or anywhere that needs a pop of color. Worked in the round in tapestry double crochet, this project will come together more quickly than you might think. A 100% cotton yarn gives a structured yet natural feel to the fabric, while keeping it easy to care for.
