Crochet Knit Purl Stitch is just perfect for an easy Pillow Pattern. And I mean simple and relaxing crocheting to create beautiful home decor.
We all know as crocheters we love the look of a lot of knit stitches. Mimicking them isn't always easy, but this stitch is the closest to the knit and purl stitches. After releasing a TikTok video on the crochet knit purl stitch that went viral, I wanted to make sure you had great patterns to try this out.
If you haven't seen this stitch in action yet, start here at this post to get the basics. This post is a written pattern for an 18 or 20 inch pillow cover. But it can be really easy to adjust the sizing to whatever pillow you want. Keep scrolling for a video tutorial to guide you through this fun crochet home decor pattern.
