The Twisted Textured Pillow was inspired from the Statue of Liberty Pillow by RedHeart. I thought it would be fun to design and make my own. I love bright colors and I thought the orange and green would be nice for the summer. Scroll on down for the pattern.
Supplies: Big Twist Value Yarn – 6 0z/170gm
Colors: Pumpkin and Lime
Crochet Hook: H(5mm)
16 X 16 Pillow Form
ch – chain
sc – single crochet
dc – double crochet
fpdc – front post double crochet
Ch 3 counts as stitch.
Make sure your foundation chain is wide enough for your pillow by adding or subtracting stitches.
Before you find your rhythm crochet a couple of rows and measure it against your pillow form just in case you need to make some adjustments. Be sure to allow for the fluff (height) of your pillow. In this example the square measured 16” and I was lucky that it stretched a bit.
Stitch count given once unless it changes.
Gauge: 4 X 4 = 15dc X 8 rows
I wouldn’t worry about the gauge so much
Multiples of 2 + 3
Make 2 (Should measure approximately 16 ½ X 16 ½)
Row 1: (RS) Ch 57, skip 3 chs (counts as st), dc in next st, dc in each ch to end, turn. (55)
Row 2: (WS) Ch1, sc in same st, sc in next st to end, turn.
Row 3: Ch3, *fpdc around dc one row below, dc in next st; repeat from * to end, turn.
Row 4: Ch1, sc in same st, sc in next st to end, turn.
Row 5: Ch3, *dc in next st, fpdc around dc one row below; repeat from * to last 2 sts, dc in last 2 sts, turn.
Row 6-53: Repeat rows 2-5 12 times and end at row 5.
Finish off and weave ends.
With right sides together seam/whipstitch 3 sides.
*I single crocheted mine around*
Flip outside in and insert pillow form and seam/whipstitch last side.
Fluff and you are ready to show off your new Twisted Textured Pillow.
