"Crochet Cover Pillow"



My crochet cover pillow is a round cushion pattern. The back and front of this contemporary simple cushion are worked in rounds. To keep the cushion flat you gradually build up the number of stitches in each round.

This item is worked in wool so it makes a great winter craft project.

If you wish, you can make this simple cushion in a two color mix. The one shown above was worked in synthetic yarn in 2 colors: brown, and beige.

To create a plainer cover pillow, simply follow the pattern and work in the same color throughout.

This size cushion is ideal for use as a maternity pillow.

Cushion covers are unique and decorative additions to practically any room in the home. How satisfying to be able to create the perfect pattern and color combination to suit each décor.

There are various designs for cushion covers. This cover pillow was designed to cover a cream taffeta pillow which I made to size. If you prefer to purchase an insert and cover it yourself, this is a quicker option. You may need to vary the tension or the amount of rounds worked in your cover pillow pattern to get the right fit.
