Crochet Along Here Comes Treble Pillow

I’m super excited to bring you this free crochet along for a two-sided textured pillow. Each side has a different design using treble post stitches to create them. One shape is a diamond and one shape is an hourglass. This pillow is made up of eight squares. The fun part is you can mix and match the squares on each side. It’s a perfect stash-busting crochet project as well. Use one color, two colors, three, or four. Use your imagination to make your pillow as unique as you.

This CAL will start on April 2nd, 2022 with the release of the first pattern right here on the blog. These squares are 8″ x 8″ and will make a 16″ pillow. We will take the first week to make four squares of the first design. The following week we will make the 2nd shape. After that, we will be able to put it all together.

Border

Be sure you have turned your work at the end of row 20, and you are working on the right side of square. {The side with the design} When crocheting down the ends of the rows, make sure you don’t crochet too tightly as this can make the square bunch up.

If you are a tight crocheter, you may want to add a couple extra stitches on each side.

If you are not making a removable cover, follow this border on all squares:

Ch 1, 3 sc in first st, sc across to next corner, 3 sc in top of ch 3, sc loosely in end of each row, 3 sc in first st of row 1, sc across to next corner{last st of row 1}, sc loosely in end of each row, sl st in first st to join.

If you want a removable cover with buttons/buttonholes, follow this border on 2 squares only:

Ch 1, 3 sc in first st, sc across to next corner, 3 sc in top of ch 3, sc loosely in end of each row, 3 sc in first st of row 1, ch 4, sk 4, sc next 8, ch 4, sk 4, sc next 8, ch 4, sk 4, 3 sc last st, sc loosely in end of each row, sl st to first st to join.  

Block each square if you wish.

Assembly

This is where you can mix and match the designs if you like. This will also depend on which squares you chose to put buttonholes on. All diamonds on one side, two diamonds, two hourglasses on one side. Whichever you like. Have fun with it!

With right sides down, sew 2 squares together in back loops with your favorite joining method.

Sew other two squares together, then sew the two panels together. Do the same with other 4 squares. Lay wrong sides together on the two pillow panels:

If you do not want a removable cover:

Sew 3 sides together, turn right side out, slide pillow insert inside and sew up final side.

If you are making a removable cover: 

Sew the 2 panels together on 3 sides with buttonholes at top or bottom of pillow, whichever you prefer. Turn cover right side out. Sew buttons on wrong side{inside of pillow} of panel without buttonholes where it would line up with the holes. Insert pillow, button it up.

    I signed up for your newsletter and your Facebook page as you requested. I think you send me things now but I am not sure. I know we met on Instagram I think. I am also on Ravelry and I have an Etsy account but I don’t go in much and I am on Pinterest, Facebook, Twitter, Reddit, Tik Tok, LinkedIn, Digg, and I think there are more but I don’t remember. your garment from today (Sat) was really nice. One of these days, I will get guts enough to try and actually write down my pattern when I make an item. I usually just do it and never again cause I don’t remember how I did it.

    1. Hi Rebecca,
      I’m super glad you liked my vest. Believe in yourself! You can totally write a pattern.

    Hi, I just started my first square and have a quick question. On row 3, am I going into row 1 with my trip? Looking at your instructions it says 2 rows below but the pictures look like just 1 row.
    Thank you for your help and this wonderful pattern.

    1. Hi Francine,

      Yes, you would be working your trebles in row 1(skipping one row and working in the 2nd below). Glad you like the pattern.
