Crochet Pillow with Cross Stitch Rose

A couple of weeks ago I crocheted a pillow cover saying the words Sweet Home Sweet, as you may have seen. I found the idea at The Purl Bee and liked the idea of cross stitching on something that's crocheted so much, that I tried another pillow. I used the same stitch (it's made of only single crochets) to create the same netting like pattern to cross stitch on and after that searched for a Rose Pattern. This how it turned out. Pretty nice, I think!


The Rose Pattern is made by Lidewijs Engels

  12. Your rose turned out so lovely. I've done the same in the past but for some reason, my x-stitches come out rather rectangular than square so the pattern seems a little elongated. I must be doing something wrong. :/

    1. Thank you, Tammy. Mine is a bit elongated, too, so you're not doing anything wrong :-) !
