Hi friends! Jennifer from The Craft Patch here. I’m excited to share a fun new crochet pillow pattern with you today! I love crocheting with thick yarn. The finished product has so much chunky texture and the whole thing works up really quickly! A smaller project like this pillow cover is a good excuse to try a new crochet stitch. You’ll love the look of this stairstep stitch and it’s easy once you get the hang of it. This project is worked on the diagonal.
- Bernat Mega Bulky Yarn in Light Heather Gray (4 Skeins )
- Size N Crochet Hook
- Blunt Tip Large Eye Embroidery Needle
This pattern fits an 18 inch pillow form.
Row 1: ch 6, DC in 4th ch from hook, DC in next 2 spaces
Row 2: ch 6, DC in 4th ch from hook, DC in next 2 spaces, flip (see video below), (sl st, ch 3, 3 dc) in ch-3 sp of previous row
Row 3: ch 6, DC in 4th ch from hook, DC in next 2 ch spaces, *(sl st, ch 3, 3 DC) in next ch-3 sp of previous row; rep from * twice; turn
Row 4: ch 6, DC in 4th ch from hook, DC in next 2 ch spaces, *(sl st, ch 3, 3 DC) in next ch-3 sp of previous row; rep from * three times; turn
Rows 5-9: Continue the pattern of increasing 1 block on each row until there are 9 blocks across, or enough squares to fit the size of your pillow form.
Rows 10-18: slip st across first 3 DC, * (slip st, ch 3, 3 DC) in next ch-3 space of previous row; repeat from * to last ch-3 space; slip st in last ch-3 space; turn. Repeat until you’ve completed the square.
Repeat pattern to make a second square for the back of the pillow.
The last step is to sew the front and back squares together. Using yarn threaded through the blunt tip needle, whip stitch around three sides of the squares. Insert pillow form. Finish stitching across the fourth side. Tie off and tuck in ends.
