Simplicity has generously provided the yarn for this project.
Today I am excited to share a fun project I have been working on. A few fellow bloggers and I have joined together for a crochet blog hop, and each of us have a fun pillow crochet pattern for you! I am amazed at the talent of these women, so be sure to check out the fun free crochet patterns they have for you. Mine is a crochet geo stripe pillow, and it is so easy to make!
Geo Stripe Pillow
What you need:
- Worsted Weight Yarn in 3 colors (Red Heart Soft)
- Size I Hook
- Yarn Needle
- Old Pillowcase
- Basic Sewing Supplies
Gauge: 6 sts=2″
1. Hdc in 3rd ch from hook. Hdc 63. Sk next st. Hdc in last st (a decrease). Turn. (65 sts)
2. Ch 1.
Work 2 decreases. Hdc in each remaining st. (63 sts) Turn.
3. Ch 1.
Hdc in same st. Hdc 60. Work one decrease. Turn. (62 st)
Continue the pattern, working 1 decrease at the end, and 2 decreases at the beginning after turning. Your decreases will all be along the same side, making the slanted triangle edge. Work a total of 43 rows.
This is the same pattern at the solid triangle, but you will be alternating your yarn colors. Work with one color for 4 rows, then use your second color, alternating in the same decrease pattern.
Line up your two triangles, with the flat and long sides together. Make sure one triangle is upside down, with the last stitch meeting the beginning row of the other. Using a yarn needle and some yarn, sew them together while they lay flat, sewing through the top loops, and hiding the stitches from the other side.
Lay your sewn pillow top on top of the pillowcase and cut the length to fit, leaving a seam allowance. The pattern was written to fit the exact width of a pillowcase so check your gauge.
Sew around your pillowcase leaving an opening on one side.
Next, using your needle and a length or yarn, hand stitch around the pillow. It doesn’t need to be too tight of stitching. Stop where at the space you left un-sewn previously.
Now you can stuff your pillow. Grab small chunks for the best result, it will be less lumpy this way, but will take a bit longer to fill.
Once it’s stuffed, hand sew the opening shut, starting where you left off. Tie the two ends together with a tight and sturdy knot.

From a country that offers very very limited yarn materials/variety and tools for crochet, I still love this hobby. I would love to own a set of Boye Ergonomic Hooks for I am sure it will ease the pain on my fingers as I have CTS (Carpal Tunnel Syndrome) on both hands :( A load of beautiful yarn that are always just for my drooling could perhaps be mine to have and create something beautiful out of it. A winding machine is a plus factor, too. Goodluck to me :)
Oh dear! I am sorry about your Carpel Tunnel :( Good luck to you, and I do think those hooks might help.
I have seen and read comments on Boye Hooks and people are saying good things about it :) I sure hope so :) Thanks for your response, it means a lot to me :)
Yes! I LOVE them. The tip is smooth, and really goes in and out easy for me. You are welcome, thanks for your comment!
Christmas presents and a poncho for myself!!! :) thanks for the chance!
I would make something for my new granddaughter!

Thanks for the chance to win and for the pillow patter. So cute. Love the colors
This is such great fun….super way to spend Labor Day…good luck all!!!
I love the colors you used for the pillow. I want to try this but am still trying to get the hang of crocheting. Knitting wasn’t hard (just learned earlier this year), but crocheting has been a bit troublesome for me. I’m not giving up though lol :)
Good! Practice makes perfect! I want to try knitting, I love all the beautiful textures you can make.
My daughter has been asking for me to make her and her doll matching afghans, so if I won I would make them for her.
I have been wanting to make the little sleeping bag type things for kids. If I won this yarn, I would make one, at least!
Love all the colors u used in the pillow. Love the design also.
I LOVE to crochet whimsical hats and also arm warmers. I would use the yarn in this give away to make more! Thanks for the opportunity to win such a great prize.
