Tunisian Crochet Pillow Cover FREE Pattern

The other day, I came across one of the prettiest Tunisian crochet stitches that I had ever seen! Which, of course, meant that I had to make something to show off this gorgeous stitch. Introducing… the Hayfields Pillow, a Tunisian crochet pillow cover pattern.

Finishing

Place panels together wrong side to wrong side taking care to ensure the orientation of the panels are in the preferred position. You will be seaming the pillows together right side out because we will be crocheting a crab stitch border in the join seam.

Using the 12mm traditional crochet hook, begin seaming the panels together by single crocheting around 3 edges of the panels. (Maker Tip: Use stitch markers to hold the panels together while seaming.)

Insert pillow form into pillow cover and continue seaming the pillow cover closed using single crochets. Sl st to the first sc in this round.

Chain 1 and work a row of reverse single crochets (crab stitch) into each sc that was made to seam the pillow together.

Cut yarn, fasten off, weave in ends.
