Thank you to Cascade Yarns for providing the yarn for this sample!

I love throw pillows! They’re so simple to make, and they add so much character to a couch or bed.

For this pillow, I used 220 Superwash from Cascade Yarns (in “Ridge Rock”). This is a popular yarn from Cascade, and it’s my first experience with it. I absolutely love it! It’s soft, but sturdy. It was perfect for the pillow, but would also be great for a hat or scarf. I love that the yarn is not dull-looking, but is still matte enough that it shows off stitch work wonderfully.

I decided to accent this pillow with a pop of color using three fabric flowers from Hobby Lobby:

The great thing about these flowers is that they’re actually hair clips; so they’re super easy to attach to the pillow, and are completely rearrangeable/removable. If my decor changes, I can simply find different fabric flower clips. So simple!

Enjoy this easy pattern!

Level: Easy

Size: Pattern will fit a standard 12" throw pillow insert. (Instructions for adjusting the size are including in the Notes section.)

Hook: H (5.00mm) 

Yarn: 310-320 yards of 220 Superwash from Cascade Yarns (sample shown in "Ridge Rock"). 220 Superwash is a #4 worsted weight yarn.

You’ll also need: 12" throw pillow insert, yarn needle, fabric flower hair clips (optional) 

Gauge: 8 rows of 12 SC = 3" square

Abbreviations Used:
   ST/STS (stitch/stitches)
   SL ST (slip stitch)
   SK (skip)
   CH (chain)
   SC (single crochet)
   HDC (half double crochet)
   SC+HDC (this just means to put a single crochet and a half double crochet in the same stitch)

Notes:
(1) This pattern is worked in American Standard Terms.
(2) CH1 at the beginning of rows does not count as a stitch.
(3) To make the pattern for a larger or smaller pillow, just make sure to begin with an odd number of chains. Your starting chain and first row, when gently stretched, should come just short of the seams of your insert pillow (keeping in mind that you'll be adding a couple small rows of border at the end).

Pattern (make 2):

To begin: CH 45.

Row 1: SC in 2nd CH from hook and in each CH across. (44)
Row 2: CH1, turn. SC in each ST across. (44)
Row 3: CH1, turn. SK 1st ST, SC+HDC in next ST. (SK next ST, SC+HDC in next ST) across. (44)
Row 4: CH1, turn. SK 1st ST, SC+HDC in next ST. (SK next ST, SC+HDC in next ST) across. (44)
Row 5: CH1, turn. SC in each ST across. (44)
Row 6: CH1, turn. SC in each ST across. (44)
Row 7: CH1, turn. SK 1st ST, SC+HDC in next ST. (SK next ST, SC+HDC in next ST) across. (44)
Row 8: CH1, turn. SK 1st ST, SC+HDC in next ST. (SK next ST, SC+HDC in next ST) across. (44)
Rows 9-44: Repeat Rows 5-8. (44)

Edging: CH1. SC evenly around all 4 sides of pillow, putting (SC, Ch1, SC) in each corner. Join with Sl St to 1st SC. You should have 44 SC on each side.

Edging

Sewing Sides Together:
Hold both sides together as you want them to be placed on the pillow. Join your yarn through both pieces, somewhere on the edge (I started in a corner). Ch1, then SC through the lined-up stitches from both pieces, seaming them together:

Seaming

Continue around 3 sides of the pillow, putting (SC, Ch1, SC) in each corner. Insert pillow. Continue to SC along the remaining side, enclosing the pillow completely. Join with a Sl St to the first SC of the round, fasten off and weave in ends.

Attach your flowers (optional). Done!

    This is a really cute idea and I love the modern look of the throw pillow. I never considered crocheting a pillow cover because they seemed so dated but you captured 2016! Thanks so much for sharing with us 🙂

    • Rebecca April 14, 2016, 9:17 am

      Thank you SO much! Making crochet seem fresh and modern is my goal for this blog, so I really appreciate your kind words. 🙂

    Thank you for sharing your pattern. The flowers are a really cool idea. I’ll have to remember them for my Granddaughter’s room! I’m challenging myself to make a bold chevron pillow and hadn’t got to the connection of front to back yet in ny thinking and you’ve helped me with that. Thanks!

  • Lola April 12, 2016, 10:26 pm

    This is way cute!! I am allergic to wool. Any other suggestions?

    • Kimmie April 13, 2016, 3:27 pm

      I think you could substitute any other #4 worsted weight yarn! Something that would show off the stitch pattern! (Super silky yarns don’t really encourage the stitch pattern to be on display) I hope this helps! ?

    • Rebecca April 14, 2016, 9:18 am

      Kimmie is exactly right!

  • Lola April 14, 2016, 2:23 am

    Thanks, I am making an afghan off your site and am going to use whatever leftovers there are. One color on one side, another for the other side. Thanks for the great, cute idea!!

  • lola April 27, 2016, 8:06 pm

    Hey there, I have made one side of this pillow, but it’s way bigger than a pillow insert of 12 inches. I’m going to have to get a bigger insert. Hmmmmm.

    • Rebecca April 27, 2016, 8:50 pm

      Did you do a gauge check?

  • Ashlyn October 24, 2016, 9:09 pm

    Wht yarn would you say is similar to this? I couldnt find a color I liked in the Cascade 220 super wash 🙁

    • Rebecca October 25, 2016, 9:22 am

      Maybe I Love This Yarn? I’m not sure, you’ll have to choose a #4 yarn and do a gauge swatch. 🙂
