We recently updated our bedroom with new windows, new trim, plantation shutters, and a pretty dark gray paint on the walls. Of course, new bedding made its way into the room, too. 😉
Since the color scheme changed, I decided that a new crochet pillow cover or two would be fun to make. I already had a couple of pillow inserts to use. The only problem is they are big – 20-inches square – so I wanted to find a crochet pattern that would work with some chunky yarn. I thought something with texture would work great on a pillow that big. I found a great simple pattern here at Teal & Finch. I love this pattern because it is worked with bulky yarn and you can make it any size you need!
I used Bernat Blanket Yarn in Pumpkin Spice with an N/10mm hook to make my pillow cover. I just followed the directions in the pattern to make the pillow cover large enough to fit my 20-inch insert.
Just look at that texture!!! 😍
I added 6 (1-inch) gray buttons evenly spaced to secure the cover over the insert. The 1-inch size fits perfectly through the openings in the pattern.
I absolutely love how it turned out!! It looks great on our bed and it is so plush and comfy!! And so easy to take off and throw in the washer when needed!
