Chunky Crochet Cable Pillow Cover

This Chunky Crochet Cable Pillow Cover turned out so soft and cozy!! I am so happy with it! It was super fast to make because I used Bernat Blanket Yarn with an N/9mm hook. The color I used is called Light Teal, but this yarn comes in a variety of colors including several variegated color ways. I used most of 2 (10.5 ounce) skeins to crochet my pillow cover.

This great pattern is from Megmade with Love. It’s available free here and there is a link to purchase a PDF version from her Etsy shop so it’s easy to print if you want to do that.

My pillow insert is 20×20 inches and the pattern used a 16×16 inch insert. The Bernat Blanket Yarn is super bulky (size 6) so I only had to make a couple of changes to the pattern  to make the cover large enough to fit my pillow insert. I chained 43 to start and, beginning in row 2, changed the first 6 sc to 8 sc and the last 6 sc to 8 sc. (It will make sense when you see the pattern 🙂 ) I also added one more row of sc at the end so the front of my cover is 43 rows. For the 2 back pieces, I chained 43 to start, then worked sc across so there are 42 sc. I did 24 rows like the pattern calls for.

For the back, I added 6 (1/2-inch) buttons evenly spaced on the bottom layer of the pillow cover. I even like the way this looks – it’s like having 2 pillows in 1! Just flip it around for a different look…

I made another pillow cover using Bernat Blanket Yarn in Pumpkin Spice – you can see it in this post. These pillows are so amazingly soft and cozy! These are for our bedroom, but I may have to make some to snuggle up with on the couch…

Thanks for stopping by,

Anita
