Scroll down to find the free crochet tutorial for this LOVE pillow cover.
You will find lots of tutorials for crocheting graphs and how to achieve C2C (corner to corner) there. I highly recommend Mikey from the Crochet Crowd for video tutorials. He has a very great way of explaining things!
For the back of the pillow, I wanted to do something fun with the yarn that wasn’t just single crochet like the front. I chose to do corner to corner (C2C), because I haven’t done it in quite some time and it’s actually one of my favorites to crochet!
Want to make it later?
You will also need to know how to crochet C2C (corner to corner).
The back cover is made with corner to corner (C2C) using half double crochets. Keep increasing until one side is as long as the front cover then start to decrease. Keep decreasing until your square/back cover complete.
I have not included a written pattern for C2C as it’s easier learned visually to grasp the concept. Again, YouTube has great tutorials for this!
Use stitch markers or pins to secure both the front and back side of the cover together with the ‘wrong sides’ facing inside.
Using white and your crochet hook, single crochet the pieces together. Make 3 single crochets in each corner.
Once you have crocheted 3 sides, put in your pillow insert and continue to single crochet the front and back pieces together.
Fasten off and weave in your ends.
I hope you enjoy making this project! I apologize I was not able to give you the video tutorials myself, but I am very busy at the moment with moving into a new home – I hope you understand!
