My mom always used to tell me "April showers bring May flowers." The May Flowers Pillow captures the image of a new field of flowers growing and stretching toward the sky. Bees love these new flowers and fly about them searching for nectar.

The pillow is constructed with slipped stitches, mini cables, and bobbles. The flower stems and centers are knit as the pillow is knit, and the petals, leaves, and bees are added afterwards.

The pillow can either be knit as a closed pillow seamed at the top, or as a pillow cover with a button flap in the back.

The finished dimensions are approximately 12″ by 12″ (30 by 30 cm).


Yarn
- 150-180 yards of dark green worsted weight yarn.
- 120-150 yards of cream worsted weight yarn.
- Approximately 1 yard each of six colors of worsted weight yarn for flower petals.


Notions
- (For pillow cover) 12” by 12” (30 cm by 30 cm) pillow form.
- (For pillow cover) Three 3/4” (19 mm) buttons with matching thread.
- (For closed pillow) Stuffing OR 12” by 12” (30 cm by 30 cm) pillow form.
- Decorative bee buttons (optional) with matching thread.
- One stitch marker.
- Cable needle.
- Sewing needle to attach buttons.
- Tapestry needle to embroider petals and leaves and to weave in ends.

Beautiful idea. I used the patterns for some other projects and my friends love them.

Download was immediately, no problem! Instructions are very simple, however I am the newbie to trying double knitting, if you are too, go to YouTube to watch how this works. There are several different ways of cast on and dealing with the edges. Be prepared to practice a little before trying the pattern. I finally found what works for me. If you've done stranded knitting, holding yarns between both hands works very nicely and I got some speed into the knitting. Thankyou! My daughter is a nurse and when she saw the pattern said I want that, lol!

My sister sent me a link to your site and this pattern and I snapped it up as soon as I saw it. It's me to a 'T'! In fact, your whole shop is me to a 'T' and I told my sister to be sure to tell whoever has me for Christmas (big family so we do a lottery to see which sibling buys gifts for which other sibling) that this is the only place they need to shop! Thank you.
