Daisy Pillow Pattern
The Daisy Pillow is pure 60’s flower power happiness! Don’t let the unconventional shape fool you. With its rhythmic increases and decreases, the Daisy Pillow is very beginner friendly. Sister and/or Spun Cloud is worked in the round to create a cute little bloom that will brighten your home year-round. No watering required!
