It’s the season of campfires, s’mores, and hanging out with family and friends in the great outdoors. I have such fond memories of camping in the Idaho mountains as a child. My favorite part was when my parents would let us bring our bicycles and go off exploring. Plus fishing, which is an extra bonus. And I am a bit fan of fresh trout. 

Do you have fond memories of being in the great outdoors? Even though we don’t have the Rocky Mountains here in Florida I still love the idea of roasting marshmallows over the campfire surrounded by good company and plenty of laughter. 

I’m also loving this colorful and fun pillow cover series I’ve been doing this year! It’s been so much fun to switch up the look of a room by changing the pillow covers. And it’s really fun to have different themes. 

I hope you really enjoy not only working up this pattern but adding beautiful hand made decor to your home. I love being able to bring you awesome crochet content, will you please help keep this possible? Pinning this post, sharing with friends, and favoriting on Ravelry is a great way to say thanks.

Notes:

Gauge: 15 single crochet sts x 16 rows = 4 x 4 inches (10 cm x 10 cm) *Please note, matching gauge both horizontal and vertical can be difficult. Extra rows can be added at the top if needed so it is more important to match the stitch gauge versus the row gauge. This pattern also has some ease to fit over a pillow.*

Finished measurements: 19 inches (48 cm) wide by 18 inches (46 cm) tall

This pattern is worked in rows and in two pieces. The front panel will also work a button hole flap to secure the top of the crochet pillow. The front and the back panels will be slip stitched together once completed. 

After the end of each row turn and ch 1. The ch 1 does not count as a stitch. 

Since there is a wrong side and a right side to the pillow panels, I used a combination of intarsia and carrying yarn across the back for the color work. Experiment and see what works best for you.

– A burlap back can be used in substitute for a crochet pillow back.

To Finish Front Panel:

-Continue to sc Rows 86-99 in white. 

-Button Row 100: ch 1, sc 2, *ch 3, skip 3, sc 13: repeat from * until last 3 stitches, sc in last 3, turn

-Continue to sc Rows 101-106 in white.

-Fasten off and weave in ends.

 

Back Panel:

-With brown or color of choice, chain 81 and start the first row in the second chain from hook. (80 sts)

-Single crochet a total of 86 rows to create the back panel. 

-Fasten off and weave in ends. 

OR Continue to below for burlap.

 

Attaching Panels Together:

Place the front and back panels together with wrong sides facing. If using burlap cut two pieces approximately one in longer on each side of pillow. Your crochet hook will be able to work through the holes in the burlap. Using white yarn, slip stitch from top of one side of pillow (where the panels meet, not over the flap), around the bottom, and up the other side. I found by slip stitching with a tight tension really makes some crisp edges, but you do not want puckering. Fasten off and weave in ends. Flip pillow so the right side is facing out and the seams are on the inside.

Attaching Buttons:

With the back panel facing, fold front panel down over the top of the back panel and with stitch markers mark the row where each button will be placed. Using a yarn needle and green yarn, sew each button in place. 

Place a 20×20 pillow inside the cover and enjoy!
