Crochet Knit Purl Free Pillow Pattern

Sharing is caring!

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.
