Learn how to crochet a simple throw pillow. This is a great beginner crochet project!
Today I’m going to show you how to crochet a throw pillow. If you are relatively new to crochet, this is a great project for beginners. If you know how to start with a chain, single crochet, and turn, you are in business.
This project is crocheted with two pieces of yarn at a time. Just take one yarn end from each skein, stick them together, and crochet as if they were one piece of yarn.
Now for the easy part. Are you ready?
Chain 25. Single crochet 50 rows. Tie off.
You’ll end up with a big rectangle, like in the picture above.
To turn it into a pillow, fold it in half and insert a pillow form. Using a long piece of extra yarn and the blunt large-eye needle, sew a whip stitch to close up the three open sides. Here’s a picture of the whip stitch for those of you who are visual, like me:
And look how nice the seam looks when it’s all stitched up. You can’t even tell there’s a seam!
Pretty easy, right? I LOVE this pillow. The texture is exquisite and the color is scrumptious. Next I’m going to use the same method, but add stripes by switching out colors. Wouldn’t that be cute?!
