Why are we all falling in love with the Farmhouse style decor? I can’t help myself whevener I see a farmhouse styled piece and it’s because Farmhouse decorating is warm, cozy, relaxing, and full of charm and character. This is what I wanted this design to capture. 

I also love the color red around the holidays. It’s not a color I normally use in my home, but there is just something cheerful about that bright pop here and there. It’s eye catching and warm compaired to the often dull weather outside. 

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.

Gather your supplies:

Crochet Hook 5mm (H), I highly recommend Furls Odyssey (affiliate link) or a Tulip Rose Crochet Hook (link below). I love both of these.

Yarn-
Red Heart With Love in the following colorways: (affiliate link)
Eggshell (white) 1 skein
Berry Red (dark red) 1 skein
Holly Berry (bright red) 1 skein
Black 1 skein

Yardage: 680 yards total (622 meters)

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

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.

 

Back Panel:

-To begin chain 73 with dark red and start the first row in the second chain from hook.

-Single crochet a total of 72 rows to create the back panel. 

-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 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 pillow inside the cover and enjoy!
