You can never have too many pillows. I love this crochet pillow pattern and know it’s going to add a lot of love to your home. That soft, solid texture makes basically any place you decide to put it feel cozier.
Choose a bulky yarn so you can really show off the cobble stitch used in this crochet pattern. If you love fun and unique stitches you'll love this. Plus, a bulky yarn works up really quickly. You could even make this pattern in just one day.
Add your new pillow as an accent to spruce up a couch that needs some love. Nestle it between a collection of pillows you already have. Let your cat curl up on it. Just be sure to show it off.
This easy crochet pillow is so adorable that we wouldn’t blame you if you wanted to make a whole bunch of them to adorn every seating area in your home. Get started on your pillow collection. Because remember, you can never have too many pillows.
If you needed more reasons to love it, well, there’s a heart stitched right onto it.

- The aligned cobble stitch is worked in multiples of 2 by doing a sc in one st, and a tr in the following st, this is repeated until the end of the row. You then turn your work and work a sc in each st until the end of the row. This st is worked in rows of 2.
- This pillow is worked like a solid granny square, which I will explain below
- The ch 3 in rounds 1-5 counts as a dc
- The corner st is 5 sts (2 dc, tr, 2 dc) worked into one st and remains the same for rounds 2 – 5
Chain 4, sl/st into 4th ch to create a loop
Round 1 – ch 3, the following is worked into the center of the loop – 2dc, 1 tr, *3 dc, 1 tr; repeat from* two more xs, sl/st in top of ch 3 – 16 sts
Round 2 – ch 3, dc in each of the next 2 sts, in the corner st work 2 dc, 1tr, 2 dc.* Dc in each of the next 3 sts and then work a corner st; repeat from* all the way around, sl/st in top of ch 3 – 32 sts
Rounds 3-5 – ch 3, 1 dc into each st around, minus the corners where you will work 2 dc, 1 tr, 2 dc into each one. Sl/st into the top of the ch 3 at the end of each round. You will increase by 16 sts each round. At the end of round 5 you will have 80 sts – tie off and cut color A
Attach color B
Round 6 – Ch 1, sc into each st around minus the corners where you will work 4 sc into each one. Sl/st into ch 1 – 92 sts
Round 7 – Ch 1, turn. Sc into the turning ch, *tr into the following st, sc into the next st; repeat from * all around, minus the 4 corners where you will work 4 sc into each one. Sl/st into ch 1 – 104 sts
Round 8 – Ch 1, turn. Sc into each st around, minus the 4 corners where you will work 4 sc into each one. Sl/st into ch 1 – 116 sts
Rounds 9-15 – repeat rounds 7 and 8. You will increase by 12 each round. At the end of round 15 you will have 200 sts. Tie off and cut yarn.
Repeat rounds 1-15 to create the other side of the pillow.
Using color B and a 5mm hook, crochet 2 hearts. I’ve included the link to the video below which explains how to do this:
How to crochet a heart
Pin each heart into the center of each of the right sides of the pillow and using a tapestry needle sew the heart on. Next, place the sides of the pillow wrong side facing out, pin, and sew 3 of the sides together using a tapestry needle. Turn the pillow right side out and stuff with polyester filling until the desired look is achieved. Sew together the last side, tie off and cut yarn.
Sew in any ends.
