Ready to make this textured crochet pillow for your home?
This pattern was originally share on The Hook Nook Life as a guest post for Jessica and her readers.
I designed this pillow for my daughter’s room. She is 11 now and starting to like a more mature aesthetic, but still loves a good soft cuddle pillow!
I used Red Heart’s Hygge yarn and some cobbles and bobbles to give her just that!
- Yarn: Red Heart hygge, 70% acrylic, 30% nylon, 8oz/227g, Pearl, 212 yards/121 meters – 2 skeins
- Hook: K/6.5 mm
- Pillow form – 14 x 14 inches
- Tapestry Needle to weave in ends
US Abbreviations and Techniques:
- ch – chain
- sc – single crochet
- tc – treble crochet
- st(s) – stitch(es)
- bobble – yarn over, insert into st, *yarn over and pull through st to pull up a loop, pull through two loops, repeat from * 3 more times, yarn over and pull through the 5 loops left on hook
Gauge: Of first section – 10 sts x 11 rows = 4 inches x 4 inches
Finished measurements/sizing: 14 x 14 inches
- In row 4, you will end with 2 sc stitches to keep the height of the rows at a sc height. On row 2, you will already end with a sc stitch
- Treble crochet cobbles and the bobbles are worked on the wrong side of the pattern. This pushes the stitch out to the right side of the pattern when you work the single crochet beside it. Push the cobble/bobble stitch toward the right side as you work and make the sc low and tight to make the cobble/bobble stick out more.
- There is a chart at the bottom of the post to show the placement of the alternating cobbles and the rows of bobbles.
- I do have an alternating cobble stitch tutorial (https://stitchinprogress.com/crochet-misaligned-cobble-stitch/) on my blog if you would like to see how that is worked too.
