Harvest Free Crochet Pillow Pattern

Don’t you just love fall home decor? I knew I wanted to add a modern crochet pillow cover to my seasonal home decor this year, and I’m so pleased with the Harvest Crochet Pillow Cover. And the pillowcase is removable, which makes it easy to store each year. The Harvest pillow might get you hooked on colorwork.

I got lucky and found the perfect font that was in the chic farmhouse style. Daydreaming on Pinterest is one of my favorite activities, and the boards about home decor are the ones that pull me in, especially the farmhouse decor. So many times, I see things I feel I could re-create, and single words on a pillow are so trendy right now. By the way, I created a crochet table runner that matches this but says “thankful”.

Just the right yarn.

And don’t you just love the tweed yarn? It adds not only a great texture but little flecks of fall tones. WeCrochet started carrying Vanna’s Choice Yarn and I jumped for joy. The options of yarn colors and tones of Vanna’s Choice inspires my creativity.

I know you are anxious to get started, but first I want to tell you about a really amazing and free tool to help you with this colorwork. I have a sheep bobbin that will lessen the possibilities of yarn tangles. Because no crocheter likes it when the yarn gets messy.

Head on over to a colorwork blog post and get your free printable Sheep Yarn Bobbins are super helpful and also cute. If you have a Cricut or Silhouette style cutting machine then it only takes a couple of minutes to have a new and useful colorwork tool.

Notes:

  • 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.
  • This pattern is worked from bottom up 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.
  • A burlap back can be used in substitute for a crochet pillow back.

Guess what? Half Way There!

Crochet colorwork is so rewarding as each line reveals new small details that add up to the finished piece. Don’t be frustrated if you feel you are slow with colorwork, especially if this is your first time. It’s worth the journey. Row by crochet row, you can do this.

-Continue to sc Rows 55-57 in B (Oatmeal).

-Fasten off and weave in ends.

Back Panel:

-With Oatmeal, chain 77 and start the first row in the second chain from hook.
After the end of each row turn and ch 1. The ch 1 does not count as a stitch. (67 sts)

-Single crochet a total of 45 rows to create the back panel.

-Fasten off and weave in ends.
OR Continue to below and substitute the back panel for burlap.

Attaching Panels Together:

Place the front and back panels together with the wrong sides facing. If using burlap cut two pieces approximately one in longer on each side of the pillow. Your crochet hook will be able to work through the holes in the burlap. Using white yarn, slip stitch from the top of one side of the 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 the pillow so the right side is facing out and the seams are on the inside.
