Pattern Notes

  • This pillow is created by crocheting two identical panels then attaching them together using the standard single crochet stitch.

  • When finished, this pillow measures 14” square. Keep in mind that it is designed to fit around a 14” pillow form, but it will be a snug fit. If you’d like a less-snug fit, simply chain more foundation stitches and work until each piece is a square.


Ch 35

Row 1

fp: *insert hook into the ch, yo, pull up a loop* in ea st across

rp: yo, pull through one, *yo pull through two loops* across

Rows 2-27 (or until square)

fp: *insert hook through vertical bar, yo, pull up a loop* across

rp: yo, pull through one, *yo, pull through two loops* across

Proceed to Joining Instructions


Hold the two panels together with the right sides (vertical bars) facing out. Sc around the entire piece, and remember to insert the pillow form before fully seaming. Work 3 sts in ea corner. Slst to the first st to join.


Pull through the last st, cut yarn, and weave in any ends.
