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 buttonhole 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 are 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 colorwork. Experiment and see what works best for you.
  • A burlap back can be used in substitute for a crochet pillow back.

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 black 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.

Attaching crochet pillow Panels Together

Attaching Buttons

With the back panel facing, fold the 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 black or white yarn, sew each button in place.  

Place a 20×12 pillow inside the cover and enjoy!
