One of my favorite holiday traditions is decorating sugar cookies. Especially now that I have little ones there is something magical about the smells of sugar, sprinkles & love in the room. One of my boys favorite cookie cutters is the truck. It’s not only fun to eat but to also play with. So the second I had this pillow whipped up they were so excited to have it on the couch. Holiday decor can bring a house warmth and holiday cheer.

Farmhouse Truck Crochet Pillow 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.

-Fasten off and weave in ends. 

Attaching Panels Together:
Place the front and back panels together with wrong sides facing. Using either green or 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 crochet pillow Panels Together

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 18×18 pillow inside the cover and enjoy!
