Today I share the crochet pattern of my latest pillow with you. I lost my crochet hook in the process somewhere. That’s what happens if you crochet outside the home. Never thought that I could miss a crochet hook so much. My pillow is about 37 to 38 cm wide. If you have a different size pillow, you can crochet more or less stitches. In this pattern it does not matter how many chains you start with.

- About 8 skeins of “Yarn and Colors Epic”, I used the color Glass 072.
- Crochet Hook 5,0 mm
- A needle for sewing ends
- Single Crochet
- Double Crochet
- Front Post Double Crochet
- Crab Stitch (for crocheting both sides together)
I started with a chain of 53.
Row 1: 1 double crochet in the 4th chain from the crochet hook. One double crochet in each of the following chains. Turn your work.
Row 2: Chain 2, these count as your first double crochet. Double crochet in next stitch (see picture, the crochet hook points to the right stitch). Front post double crochet in next stitch. Keep repeating “double crochet, front post double crochet” until the end of the row. Always crochet a double crochet in the last stitch. Turn your work.
Row 3: Chain 1 (counts as first single crochet), single crochet in next stitch (see picture, the crochet hook points to the right stitch). Single crochet in each of the following stitches. (Don’t forget to crochet the last single crochet on the chains of the previous row).
Row 4: Chain 2 (first double crochet), now it depends on which stitch you have to crochet, with which stitch you ended in row 2. Around every double crochet from row two you will crochet a front post double crochet. Above the front post double crochet from row 2, you will have to crochet a double crochet in the single crochet from the previous row. Alternately crochet a double crochet and a front post double crochet until the end of the row.
Keep repeating row 3 and 4 this way until your pillow reached the right length. Crochet a second part for the back side of the pillow.
I used the crab stitch to crochet both parts together. But of course if you find it more easy, you can single crochet around as well.
