Let’s Get Started!

Crochet Flower Pillow Materials: What You’ll Need

  • Yarn: Medium weight yarn works best. I recommend acrylic for its softness and durability. Choose your favorite colors for petals, centers, and the pillow base.
  • Crochet Hook: A size suitable for your yarn. (Check the yarn label for recommendations)
  • Scissors: For cutting yarn.
  • Yarn Needle: To weave in ends and attach flowers
  • Stitch Marker (Optional): To mark the beginning of rounds

Crocheting the Flowers: Step by Step Pattern

Before we start, here are some basic crochet terms for beginners:

  • Chain Stitch (ch): The foundation of most crochet patterns.
  • Single Crochet (sc): A basic, versatile stitch.
  • Slip Stitch (sl st): Used for joining rounds or moving across stitches.
  • Magic Ring: A starting technique for working in the round.

Flower Pattern:

  1. Magic Ring: Create an adjustable loop.
  2. Round 1: Ch 2, work 12 sc into the magic ring, sl st to join the first and last sc. (12 sc)
  3. Round 2 (Increase Round): Ch 2, sc in the next st, 2 sc in the next st repeat around, sl st to join. (18 sc) Increase Note: This is the key round for shaping the flower petals. The 2 sc in each designated stitch will create a small “bump” that forms the base of the petal.
  4. Round 3 (Increase Round): Ch 2, sc in the next 2 sts, 2 sc in the next st repeat around, sl st to join. (24 sc)
  5. Round 4 (Increase Round): Ch 2, sc in the next 3 sts, 2 sc in the next st repeat around, sl st to join. (30 sc)
  6. Round 5 (Increase Round): Ch 2, sc in the next 4 sts, 2 sc in the next st repeat around, sl st to join. (36 sc)
  7. Round 6 (Hold Here for Round Petal Shape): Ch 2, sc in each of the next 5 sts, 2 sc in the next st repeat around, sl st to join. (42 sc)

Shaping Note: Rounds 6 and onwards will maintain the same number of stitches (42 sc in this case) to create a defined petal shape. If you prefer a more rounded flower, continue increasing for a few more rounds before holding the stitch count.

Rounds 7-10 (Hold): Ch 2, work 42 sc around, sl st to join. (42 sc)

Descending Rows for Petal Points:

We will now decrease stitches in designated spots to create pointed petals.

  1. Round 11 (Decrease Round): Ch 2, sc in the next 3 sts, sl st in the next 2 sc repeat around, sl st to join. (36 sc)
  2. Round 12 (Decrease Round): Ch 2, sc in the next 2 sts, sl st in the next 2 sc repeat around, sl st to join. (30 sc)
  3. Round 13 (Decrease Round): Ch 2, sc in the next st, sl st in the next 2 sc repeat around, sl st to join. (24 sc)

Finishing Touches:

  1. Fasten off: Cut yarn, leaving a long tail. Weave the tail through the back loops of the last round to secure and hide.
  2. Center: Using contrasting yarn, create a small circle with a magic ring and 6 sc. Sew this securely to the center of the flower using your yarn needle and a weaving motion.

Repeat steps 1-10 to create additional flowers for your pillow.

Assembling Your Crochet Flower Pillow

  1. Pillow Base: Create two simple crochet squares or rectangles to the size you want your pillow. Use a single crochet stitch for a sturdy base.
  2. Attaching Flowers: Arrange your flowers on one pillow square. Sew them securely in place using your yarn needle.
  3. Joining and Stuffing: With right sides facing, join the two pillow squares using a single crochet stitch around the edges, leaving a gap for stuffing. Fill with polyfill or your preferred stuffing material. Sew the opening closed.

Customizing Your Crochet Flower Pillow: Color & Design Ideas

The beauty of this project lies in its versatility! Experiment with:

  • Vibrant Color Schemes: Bold or pastel – the choice is yours!
  • Flower Variations: Play with different petal counts or add textured stitches.
  • Pillow Shapes: Create round, heart shaped, or even star shaped pillows.
