The Twisted Textured Pillow was inspired from the Statue of Liberty Pillow by RedHeart.  I thought it would be fun to design and make my own.  I love bright colors and I thought the orange and green would be nice for the summer.  Scroll on down for the pattern.

Twisted Textured Pillow

Supplies:  Big Twist Value Yarn –  6 0z/170gm

Colors:  Pumpkin and Lime

Crochet Hook: H(5mm)

16 X 16 Pillow Form

Tapestry Needle

Scissors

Abbreviations:

ch – chain

sc – single crochet

dc – double crochet

fpdc – front post double crochet

Notes:

Ch 3 counts as stitch.

Make sure your foundation chain is wide enough for your pillow by adding  or subtracting stitches.

Before you find your rhythm crochet a couple of rows and measure it against your pillow form just in case you need to make some adjustments.  Be sure to allow for the fluff (height) of your pillow.  In this example the square measured 16” and I was lucky that it stretched a bit.

Stitch count given once unless it changes.

Gauge:  4 X 4 = 15dc X 8 rows

I wouldn’t worry about the gauge so much

Instructions:

Multiples of 2 + 3

Make 2  (Should measure approximately 16 ½ X 16 ½)

Row 1:  (RS)  Ch 57, skip 3 chs (counts as st), dc in next st, dc in each ch to end, turn. (55)

Row 2:  (WS) Ch1, sc in same st, sc in next st to end, turn.

Row 3:  Ch3, *fpdc around dc one row below, dc in next st; repeat from * to end, turn.

Row 4:  Ch1, sc in same st, sc in next st to end, turn.

Row 5:  Ch3, *dc in next st, fpdc around dc one row below; repeat from * to last 2 sts, dc in last 2 sts, turn.

Row 6-53:  Repeat rows 2-5 12 times and end at row 5.

Finish off and weave ends.

With right sides together seam/whipstitch 3 sides.

*I single crocheted mine around*

Flip outside in and insert pillow form and seam/whipstitch last side.

Fluff and you are ready to show off your new Twisted Textured Pillow.

Hope you enjoyed this quick and easy pattern.  Please share on social media.

Happy Hooking!

I started crocheting again after many years. Back then when I thought of the word crochet a granny square comes to mind first. No one was wearing crocheted clothes and the fad of crocheting died. I picked up a hook and some yarn and I was on my way. No more granny square blankets for me. Thanks to the internet you can learn anything you want and if you search just a little bit further you will find people who share your passion. I immediately I became enthralled in Pinterest, Ravelry and Facebook crochet groups. If I ran into a snag there was YouTube, I can learn a new stitch from a live person. So two years later here I am, a certified crochet addict and lover of yarn.

If you are a die hard crocheter you will understand. I have so many WIP’s going on at one time until I confuse myself. The attack of the yarn has made it to my home. Yarn has found it’s way from my computer room, bedroom, and now it rests in the family room. Pretty funny having my son’s friends over and they are moving yarn to sit down and I provide the entertainment of showing them my finished work. I think that’s the real reason why they want to come by so much.

To combat the many unfinished projects I decided to keep an online presence of what I do, make and find on the web.
