How to Crochet a Round Pillow

Thank you so much for sharing!

Hey there everyone!  My site was down for a few days, but now we are back up and running, so I can share with you my latest project that came out on Monday!

I shared how to make this pillow!  It’s a super easy project, beginner friendly and I go through all the steps for you on video.  I also show you how you can modify this pattern for any type of yarn, thick or thin.

Materials
Yarn
hook
pillow form

I used a size 5 yarn and a P hook. I recommend a self striping/ variegated yarn choice for this project since the stitch is simple.

INSTRUCTIONS

Start with a Magic circle

-hdc (half double crochet) 7 times inside the magic circle
-slip stitch closed and tighten circle, chain 2
-2hdc in each stitch going all the way around
-slip stitch closed, ch 2
-{2 hdc, hdc 1} repeat going all the way around. slip stitch closed, ch2
-{2 hdc, hdc 2} repeat going all the way around. slip stitch closed, ch2
-{2 hdc, hdc 3} repeat going all the way around. slip stitch closed, ch2
-{2 hdc, hdc 4} repeat going all the way around. slip stitch closed, ch2
-{2 hdc, hdc 5} repeat going all the way around. slip stitch closed, ch2
-{2 hdc, hdc 6} repeat going all the way around. slip stitch closed, ch2
-{2 hdc, hdc 7} repeat going all the way around. slip stitch closed, ch2
Continue in this manner until the circle meets the required size for your pillow form.
*if your circle is wavy, you have too many hdc stitches in your initial magic circle
*if your circle is cupping then you have too few in the magic circle

EACH yarn choice and hook size will obtain a slightly different result, the remaining instructions are the same.

Hi Melanie,

Just watched your utube video for beginner crocheter's. Loved it ! I am a new crocheter & am having problems with tension & splitting my yarn etc. I really needed the "encouragement" your video provided. Thanks again !
