30 Free Modern Crochet Pillow Patterns

Want to give your living space a lift but not sure where to start? Crochet pillows have to be one of the easiest ways to spruce things up! In this collection of free patterns I’ve chosen different shapes/sizes of pillows that use a variety of stitches and techniques. There’s sure to be a design to spark your imagination.

With some of these designs, the cushion insert might show through.  If that bothers you, consider using a colourful dyed cover cushion and making it a part of the pattern (they don’t cost much so still a cheaper way to update your décor).

Best of all, you can use your yarn stash with these crochet cushion designs (they don’t use much at all!) and keep your crafting and redecorating costs down.

Crochet Pillows – Designs and Techniques

Crochet pillows are easy projects.

At the most basic level, two squares or rectangles are crocheted, three sides are closed before adding a cushion insert or stuffing and then closing the final side.

The crochet pillow designs in this collection use different shapes and sizes:

  • Square
  • Rectangle
  • Round
  • Novelty

You’ll also find different techniques for closing the pillows.  As well as seaming all four sides, these patterns include:

  • Envelope style
  • Button closure
  • Zip closure
  • Sewing one panel to a cover

Perfect if you want to remove the cover and wash separately.

If you’ve challenged yourself to learn a new stitch, you might find a designer has used it in one of these pillow designs.  The stitches in these patterns include basic crochet stitches and these different stitches and techniques:

Pillow and cushion mean the same thing in this roundup.  Some designers use ‘pillow’ whilst others ‘cushion.’ I could be wrong but I think cushion is used more in the UK and pillow in the US.   No matter which is used, these projects can be used on your couch/sofa/chair or on your bed as a form of home décor.

2. How to Crochet an Envelope Pillow

Crocheted pillow in pink
Christaco Design

This crochet pillow case is worked in one long rectangle. The pillow cover is designed to overlap the pillow in an envelope fold.

The two side seams are closed using the slip stitch (sl st).

The envelope fold makes the pillow removable and the crochet pillowcase washable.

I love that this designer has included instructions for 5 different sized pillows with a chart to help you work out how many stitches etc you need. 

  • Stitches: UK Half Treble (htr)  /  US Half Double = worked in the back loop only (blo) and UK extended Half Treble (Ehtr)  /  US  extended Half Double (Ehdc). This stitch is made by crocheting a chain 1 extension before the regular stitch.  A link to a tutorial is included in the pattern.

Corner to Corner (C2C) Crochet Pillows

C2C is crocheted diagonally from one corner of a square or rectangle to the opposite corner and back again.  The two pillow patterns below are perfect for practising this technique.  One pillow is removable with an envelope style and the other sews the seams around the cushion insert.

4.  Basic C2C Crochet Throw Pillow

This free pattern shows how to crochet a basic C2C throw pillow with Double Crochet (UK Treble Crochet) boxes.

Crocheted in the envelope style, you’ll be able to remove this cover for washing.

Stitching Together

This pillow is created by crocheting two squares (using the Corner-to-Corner stitch) and then seaming them together around a pillow form.

The back panel is one solid colour and the front panel is a beautiful modern geometric design.

Instead of written instructions, this pattern works from a graph in diagonal lines.

Tapestry Crochet Pillows

With the tapestry crochet technique, you’ll be working with more than one colour.  The unworked yarn is carried along the round or row so that it is easy to change colours mid row/round. You’ll find more tapestry crochet patterns in this collection.

6. Crochet Cushion Cover

Jera’s Jamboree

I used a tapestry panel for the front of my cushion. This is worked first. 

The yarn is re-joined to the bottom of the panel and is crocheted in a solid colour which forms part of the back. 

The same process is repeated on the top of the panel to complete the back.

As well as written instructions, you can download the tapestry chart to follow.

My design is in the envelope style so you can remove it for washing.

  • Stitches:  UK Treble Crochet (tr)  /  US Double Crochet (dc)  :  UK Half Treble Crochet (htr)  /  US Half Double Crochet (hdc)
  • Recommended yarn: Emu Classic  /  DK #3

7. Tapestry Circles Pillow

Multi coloured pillow with bands of circles nestled on a chair
Lilla Bjorn Crochet

I love the design of this cover!  It reminds me of my heart and stripes tote bag (except this is circles on one side and stripes on the other).

I think it would also look great switching the colours to a vibrant rainbow.

Two squares are seamed together with a zip closure worked into the final seam. 

A photo tutorial shows you how to add the zip.

The front of the pillow is tapestry crochet with a circles pattern and the back is crocheted in stripes.

  • Stitches:  UK Double Crochet (dc)  /  US Single Crochet (sc)
  • Recommended yarn:  Scheepjes Stone Washed  /  Sport #2
  • Measurements: 17 ½” x 17 ½”

8.  Farmhouse Crochet Pillow

Pillow with a cream background and grey squares is placed on the hearth of a fireplace
Crazy Cool Crochet

The front panel of this pillow is worked in the tapestry crochet technique in two colours.  The back panel is worked in a block of colour.

The sequence of colours is simple and I think that makes this project good for practising colour changes mid-row.

The two panels are joined by seaming together three sides, placing the pillow insert inside and seaming the last side closed.

  • Stitches: US Single Crochet (sc)  /  UK Double Crochet (dc)
  • Recommended yarn: Red Heart Super Saver  /  Aran/Worsted #4
  • Measurements: 18”

This pattern is available to buy as a PDF on Etsy.

Similar to tapestry crochet, the adorable gnome pillow in this collection is crocheted using the intarsia technique. Instead of carrying the unworked yarn across the back, the yarn is dropped and picked back up again when needed.

Mosaic Crochet Pillows

Mosaic crochet is another technique for working with colour.  Using only basic crochet stitches, it’s possible to create beautiful intricate patterns (that looks much harder than it is!).  You’ll find more about the technique in this collection of mosaic crochet patterns.

9. Mosaic Triangles Pillow

Loops and Love Crochet

The front panel is worked in mosaic crochet, while the back panel is done in rows of single crochet (UK double crochet) stitches in stripes of each colour.

Granny Square Pillows

Cosy Rosie

Short on time?  You’ll be able to complete this project in a weekend.

This crochet pattern uses the crochet granny stitch worked in the round to create a circle, before continuing to create the stitches for a square shaped cushion.

You’ll crochet two squares (one for the front and one for the back), join three sides before inserting the cushion pad and closing the final seam.

Pillow crocheted in bright granny squares

16.  Farmhouse Cables Pillow

Cable stitch is easy to get the hang of in this pattern. After you get to a certain point, you will repeat a set of rows until the end.  A fab pattern to practise on!

The front of the pillow uses the cable stitch and the back single crochet (US)/double crochet (UK).  Two pieces are crocheted for the back to allow for a button closure.

Bobble Cushions

Bobbles give a lovely texture to crochet projects (although this stitch can be a yarn eater!).  I’ve chosen these patterns because each pattern gives you options.  Use one design on both front and back or a different design on each side.

18. Diamond Bobble Cushion

I love the effect the placement of the bobbles have in these cushions. 

Simply swapping the diamond in the middle gives a different look doesn’t it!  And yet, coordinates and looks great as a set.  A very clever design.

This pattern is written in UK and US crochet terms.  You can purchase a PDF on Etsy.

This stitch is a yarn eater but don’t worry, it’s only worked on one panel, the other panel is crocheted in double crochet (US)/ treble crochet (UK).

A video tutorial for the stitch is mentioned but I couldn’t find it on this pattern.  There is a tutorial on this makers YouTube channel though, so if you haven’t worked this stitch before, watch the video to help you.

Heart Shaped, Novelty and Kids Crochet Pillows

I couldn’t research for this collection without adding this section 🙂  There’s always a place for fun in our lives …

25.  Crochet Heart Pillow

pillow crocheted in the shape of heart in green resting on a bed
Jera’s Jamboree

Worked in rows that increase and decrease, you’ll crochet two hearts which are partially sewn together before filling and then continuing to sew the heart closed.

My heart pillow would look fab in the bedroom with other crochet heart accessories.

This project is suitable for advanced beginners (because of the increasing and decreasing) and more experienced crocheters.

  • Stitches: UK half treble crochet stitches (htr)  /  US half double crochet (hdc); UK double crochet (dc)  /   US single crochet (sc)
  • Recommended yarn: Worsted, Aran #4
  • Measurements: Top of heart to bottom of heart 52cm  /  20.5”; Widest width 40cm  /  15.75”

26. Heart Shaped Hexagon Pillow

Pillow in blues and pinks crocheted in hexagons into the shape of a heart
Persia Lou

For this pillow pattern you will need to crochet 24 hexagons of roughly the same size. 

The hexagons in this pattern were part of a blog hop and you have 8 hexagon designs to choose from – you could choose the same design to keep the sizes the same.

The designer shares how she crocheted the hexagons together with some great tips.

The pattern also gives instructions on how to make the insert.

This all might sound like a lot for crocheting a pillow (when compared to the easy patterns above) BUT I think it’s worth it.  It’s really eye-catching isn’t it! 

Hexagons work just as well as the granny square for building blocks for different projects.

I really enjoyed making my hexagon cardigan and am currently working on a granny stitch one in bright colours.

  • Stitches: Hexagon
  • Recommended yarn:  Worsted/Aran #4 (use yarn from your stash!)

27. Mr & Mrs Pillows

3 pillows with the words Mr on one, & on one, Mrs on one
Michele Wilcox/Yarnspirations

These easy crochet pillows use strips of crochet to make the words. 

Made from two sides, the letters are made from strips of crochet and sewn onto the panel.

The front and back are then partially crocheted together before a pillow form is inserted, and edging is worked round to complete each pillow.

The perfect wedding gift but I’m also thinking you could crochet strips for any letters to make a personalised gift.

  • Stitches: US dc = double crochet; sc = single crochet;  tr = treble (triple) crochet;  UK tr = treble crochet; dc = double crochet; dtr – double treble crochet
  • Recommended yarn:  Red Heart With Love (substitutions available on Yarn Sub) /  Aran, Worsted #5
  • Measurements: Large pillows each measure 13” (33 cm)  /  square Small pillow measures 9½” (24 cm)  square

28.  Llama Pillow Crochet Pattern

Grace and Yarn

How cute is this llama pillow!  And as the designer says, once you know the basics, with easy modifications you could alter this pattern for different animals.

The accessories are crocheted first – eyes, cheeks, nose/mouth, ears and bow.

The pillow covers (two the same) are made by crocheting in rounds. 

Photos guide you through the making and assembly.

This is an easy pattern that will look great in girl’s or boy’s bedroom (or for the young at heart, in your bedroom :)).

  • Stitches: US SC- Single crochet, HDC- Half double crochet  /  UK DC – Double crochet, HTR – Half treble crochet
  • Recommended yarn:  Yarn Bee Denim

29.  Crochet Owl Cushion

A cushion crocheted in the shape of an owl in pink and purple

I LOVE owls so I couldn’t resist this fun pattern.

You’ll crochet the front and back first before working up the accessories (eyes, beak, wings and the flower).

The order of sewing on the accessories and assembling the cushion are also included.

  • Recommended yarn:  DK #3 (use your yarn stash!)
  • Measurements:  30cm

This owl cushion and my owl hot water bottle cover would make a great gift set!

30. Crochet Rainbow Pillow

A crochet pillow in the shape of a rainbow in pastel colours

The shape of this rainbow pillow is made by increasing and decreasing stitches.

You’ll make two panels the same and seam around, leaving space for stuffing, before closing the seam.

The super chunky yarn makes this a really quick project (only 20 rows each side).

  • Stitches:  US single crochet (sc)  /  UK double crochet (dc)
  • Recommended yarn:  Bernat Baby Blanket  /  Super Chunky
  • Measurements:  18” wide

This is a free PDF download from Yarnspirations.

Pillows aren’t purely for decoration.  We don’t just use them to be comfortable either.  Who else loves to hug a cushion? I’m sure it’s not just me …

Huggable and decorative, I hope enjoy choosing a pillow to crochet from this collection.

Happy crocheting!
