Sharing is caring!

The Crochet Nutmeg Free Pillow Pattern is quick to work up, it’s also beautiful home decor. These are crochet stitches in the round, not knit. I love figuring out new crochet stitch combinations that will mimic that knit look.

I kept this pillow simple in both style and color to be used as a staple home decor piece all year round. You can spruce it up to your style by changing colors every so often to add stripes. Or learn How to Make a Tassel with Yarn and add tassels to each corner to spice it up.

Fasten off leaving a long tail.

Place the pillow form into the pillow cover, using a yarn needle, and seam the opening closed. As an alternate option, use a zipper on one end of the pillow so the cover can be removed.
