I found this pattern for the Daffodowndillies square which can be found on Ravelry. I never knew that daffodils were once called daffodowndillies. At the beginning of the pattern, Linda Nelson, who wrote the pattern, explains that this is the old fashioned word for them.
I rummaged through my Nan's stash of wool that I was given and came across a nice bright yellow, pale green and off white.
I made 4 x 11 inch daffodil squares and double crocheted them together. For the back I made a 11 inch square in treble crochet and filled it with a 12 inch cushion. To edge the the cushion I experimented by chaining 3, then doing a treble crochet into the next stitch, slip stitch into the next stitch and chaining 3 into the same stitch as the slip stitch which created a lovely little frill.
I'm pleased to say that she was thrilled with it and also the shortbread biscuits I made her. This would make a lovely Mother's Day present as well .
