Heavenly Plush Pillow

Updated: Feb 20

Pattern by: Carrieannewithlove

Yarn: Yarnspirations Bernat Baby Blanket in White

  • Amount of yarn needed for pillow depends on your gauge even though no gauge is required for this easy make.

  • I used 1.75 skeins of yarn (I am a loosey goosey)

  • Each skein was 10.5 oz / 300 g

  • 220 yds/201m

Hook Size: 11.5 mm (P) (for tight crocheters) Or

10 mm (N) (for loose crocheters) (I used the 10)


Pillow Form: 20in x 20in (I purchased mine from Jysk)


Special Stitches used...

  1. The 4DC Bobble Stitch (4DCBS: re-invented for this pattern) (double crochet into the stitch where you are going to make your bobble, but leave the final 2 loops on the hook). Yarn over, insert hook into same stitch, yarn over and pull through 2 of the loops on your hook, (3 loops on your hook), yarn over, insert hook into same stitch, yarn over and pull through 2 loops (4 loops on your hook), yarn over, insert hook into same stitch, yarn over and pull through the 6 loops on your hook. Note: do not close the bobble just yet!

  2. sc: single crochet

  3. dc: double crochet ch: chain

  4. 4DCBS: 4 double crochet bobble stitch

Pattern:

Front Panel, 36 chain

  • Row 1: sc in 2nd and 3rd stitch from hook, in next stitch complete your first 4DC Bobble Stitch (4DCBS), in next stitch complete 1 sc (to close your bobble), repeat with next bobble, complete closure of bobble in your next stitch with 1 sc. Work in this method for the next 13 bobbles. Finish row with 2 sc, 1 ch, TURN (there will be 15 bobbles in each row)

  • Row 2: sc in 2nd stitch from hook and in each stitch to end of row. 1 ch, TURN

  • Row 3: sc in 2nd and 3rd stitch, *4DCBS, 1sc. Rep from * 14 times more. 2 sc, 1ch, TURN

  • Row 4/6/8/10/12/14/16/18/20/22/24/26: repeat Row 2

  • Row 5/7/9/11/13/15/17/19/21/23/25: repeat Row 3

*Your Front Panel will consist of 26 alternating rows of sc’s and 4DCBS*


Back Panel 1, 32 chain

  • Row 1: DC in each stitch across, 1ch, TURN (31 DC)

  • Row 2: repeat Row 1 x 11 (12 Rows of DC)


Back Panel 2, 32 chain

  • Row 1: DC in each stitch across, 1ch, TURN (31 DC)

  • Row 2: repeat Row 1 x 7 (8 Rows of DC)



Assembly:

  • You will be crocheting Panel 1 to the bottom of the Front Panel (15 Bobbles across )

  • Crochet the sides together of Panel 1 to the sides of the Front Panel (there will be a shortage….this is normal…. We will need this area for Panel 2, in order to create an envelope effect in which to hold your pillow)

  • Crochet the top of Panel 2 to the Front Panel in the same manner (you will be overlapping a small area in which both back panels will over lap)

  • Weave in any loose ends.

Your completed pillow will have:

  • 13 Bobble Rows down

  • 15 Bobble Rows across




Your Heavenly Plush Pillow is now complete and ready to insert your pillow!

Hint: The easiest way to insert your pillow is to turn your pillow case inside out….place pillow insert in centre and work sides up and around your pillow.
