Free Crochet Pattern Alpine Pillow

Free Crochet Pattern Alpine Pillow

Today I share the crochet pattern of my new 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. Maybe it is time to buy some spare crochet hooks (just in case it should happen again).

My pillow is about 37 to 38 cm wide. You can easily adjust the size of this pillow, as long as you chain an even number of stitches.

You can add this pattern to your Ravelry queue HERE.

Supplies

  • About 8 skeins of “Yarn and Colors Epic”, I used the color Glass 072. This is a heavy worsted weight 100% cotton yarn. If you prefer a softer pillow case, you could also use acrylic yarn.
  • Crochet Hook 5.0 mm
  • Tapestry needle

Some notes before you start

  • The chain 1 at the beginning of a row, does not count as a stitch.
  • The chain 2 at the beginning of a row, counts as 1 double crochet.
  • Front post double crochet stitches are always worked around regular double crochet stitches.
  • Chain an even amount of stitches (or a multiple of 2) to adjust the size

Chain 54

Row 1

1 double crochet in the 3rd chain from the hook. 1 double crochet in each of the next chains. Turn.

Row 2

Chain 1, 1 single crochet in each stitch to the end of the row. NB: the last single crochet is worked in the turning chain of the previous row. Turn.

Row 3

Chain 2 (counts as 1 double crochet), *1 front post double crochet around the double crochet you worked two rows earlier, 1 double crochet in next single crochet*. Repeat between * and * to the end of the row (do not work in the turning chain of this row). Turn.

Row 4

Chain 1, 1 single crochet in each stitch to the end of the row. NB: the last single crochet is worked in the turning chain of the previous row. Turn.

Row 5

Chain 2 (counts as 1 double crochet), *1 double crochet in next single crochet, 1 front post double crochet around the double crochet of 2 rows earlier*. Repeat between * and * until you have reached the last 2 stitches. 1 double crochet in the last 2 stitches. (do not work in the turning chain in this row). Turn.

Keep repeating rows 2 to 5 until your pillowcase has reached the right size.

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 the crab stitch too complicated, you can single crochet the parts together as well.
