Squared Off Crochet Pillow
Crochet hook size J 6.00 mm
Scrap Worsted weight yarn (4) and about 80 yards of white. I used Lion Brand Vanna’s Choice in Oatmeal, Silver Grey, White, Charcoal Grey, White and Mustard.
4 one inch buttons (optional)
15 x 15″ pillow form – I found one here → 15X15 Pillow Form
FRONT OF PILLOW
To make the front of the pillow you will need to use my square crochet pattern which can be found here → Simple Square Pattern. Make 9.
You may block your squares after you are done if you wish. One Dog Woof has a great tutorial on how to build your own blocking station, which can be found here –> DIY blocking station.
After you have blocked you can start joining together your squares. I used my yarn needle and did an invisible seam. Here is a tutorial from Oombawka Design –> Invisible Seam Tutorial
Now that the squares are sewn together you now need to attach the buttons (optional) 1 at every corner of your center square.
Finished size should be approx. 15″ x 15″
BACK OF PILLOW:
(Gauge is approx. 10 hdc’s for every 4″)
Row 1: With white, ch 35, in 2nd chain from hook half double crochet, half double crochet in every ch across, turn. (34)
Row 2: Chain 1, starting in second chain from hook half double crochet, half double crochet in every chain across, turn. (34)
Row 3- 25: Repeat row 2 (34)
Weave in loose ends with yarn needle.
Using white yarn, single crochet along edges of front and back of the pillow while evenly holding them together. Making sure they are both facing the correct direction.
In every corner, single crochet, chain 1, single crochet.
You will make 35 single crochets across every edge. 37 including corners.
Make sure to only do 3 sides and then insert your pillow form. Continue single crocheting across last side to finish your pillow. Fasten off yarn and weave in loose ends.
