Looking for the Farmhouse Truck Crochet Pillow? Click HERE.

Don’t you just love the iconic holiday decor? Who can resist a farmhouse style pillow cheerily displayed on the sofa. It just gives off all the holiday smile feel goods. 

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.

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.

Yarn-
Loops & Threads Charisma Yarn
Off White (white) 3 skeins
Red 3 skeins
Forest (green) 1 skein
Charcoal (Grey) small amount 1 skein
Black small amount 1 skein

Yardage: 420 yards total (384 meters)

1 inch (2.5 cm) Buttons (5 needed)
Yarn Needle
Scissors
18x18 inch pillow (link below)

Notes:

Gauge: 13 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: 18 inches (46 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. 

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.

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 18x18 inch pillow inside the cover and enjoy!
