Crochet Know Pillow

If you are looking for a unique pillow to jazz up your living room check out this crochet knot pillow.

It took me about a week to do, working on it in the evenings.  Not bad for a show stopping piece!  So while I caught up on the last season of Pretty Little Liars (so many unanswered questions!) I made up a knot pillow.

This ends up being about 9″ x 10″, and is quite comfy to cuddle up with on the couch.

What You Need

Stitches Used

  • magic circle
  • sc – single crochet
  • hdc – half double crochet (you’ll be doing a ton of these!)
  • sc dec – single crochet decrease
  • slst – slip stitch

Crochet Knot Pillow Pattern

The entire pattern is made holding 2 strands of yarn together.

Row 1 – 6 sc in a magic circle, slst to first sc  (6)

Row 2 – Ch1 (do not count, now and throughout), 2 sc in same st and in each around (12), slst to 1st sc (not ch 1 – now and throughout)

Row 3 – Ch1, 1 sc in same st, 2 sc in next, repeat around.  slst to 1st sc.  (18)

Row 4 – Ch1, hdc in same st, and in each around.  slst to first hdc (18)

Row 5 is repeated until you have a 14.5′ tube.  I know it’s a lot of hdc’s but it’s going to be worth it!  Settle in with the latest season of your favorite show.

Don’t forget to stuff as you go, I stuff about every 4″.

When you are ready to finish:

Decrease row – Ch1, sc dec around.  slst to 1st sc.

Fasten off, leaving one end 8″ long.  Bury shorter end into the tube.  Weave the longer end thru the last row, pull tight, tie a knot and bury in the tube.

This video shows you how to tie the pillow (not mine, just the best one I found).
