Farmhouse Style Crochet Pillow Pattern

Every year, I love to refresh my home with new pillows and blankets. I love to pull all the old things out of storage, give it all good wash and incorporate them back in the house. I also love a good DIY project and am always thinking of new home decor pattern ideas.

So today I’m excited to share with you my latest design, which is a farmhouse inspired crochet pillow. It’s a beginner-friendly pattern that’s made using just single crochet and double crochet.

And you may have already guessed it, but the stitch used is called the Suzette Stitch. I love using this stitch because there’s so much texture!

Plus, I find it very meditative. So if you enjoy that too, I think you’ll like working up this pattern. The best part is that you can customize and change to size to your liking.

You can also switch up the yarn, but more on that later. Let’s talk real quick about how to customize and change the size of your pillow.

How to Customize + Make a Different Size Crochet Pillow?

What’s great about this simple crochet pillow pattern is that you can customize and change the size easily. All you have to do to change the size is make a gauge swatch of the stitch pattern and measure how many chains you get per inch.

Then multiply that number by the length you want your pillow to be. Once you have that number figured out, you would then repeat the process to find the number of rows you need for your pillow. You also want to take into account the stitch multiple, which is 2.

Furthermore, you can customize your pillow by making two crochet panels, instead of one. So in the pattern, it tells you to sew the crochet panel onto a pillow cover, but you can also sew two panels together.

So you can really customize it to your liking! I ended up adding a cute tassel to mine as well.

The Yarn You’ll Use for This Crochet Farmhouse Pillow

For this crochet pillow pattern, you will need 2 balls of Hobby Lobby’s Yarn Bamboo-Tiful in the color Linen. It’s a lightweight category 3 yarn that’s made from cotton and bamboo.

I loved working with this yarn, and highly recommend it for this project. Another yarn that makes a great substitution for this pattern is Lion Brand Coboo yarn.

You can also change yarn weights and make a bulky weight version of this pattern, this is what I did for the chunky crochet pillow.

Alright, let’s get started with our pattern.

How to Attach Crochet Panel to Pillow Cover

Now you will be sewing your crochet panel onto your pillow cover. You will need your scissors, needle, and thread for this part.

Step 1: Lay your pillow cover down first and put your crochet panel on top.

Optional: To prevent your crochet panel from moving, I find it helpful to pin it down with some sewing pins along the edge.

Step 2: Grab your needle + thread and starting from the corner of your pillow, insert your needle through both fabrics. Work your way around the pillow, making sure to stay on the edge of the pillow cover.
