This lovely pillow is so cuddly and fluffy and furry and soft and awesome! Knit it for yourself, or knit it for a loved one to share the love. Each side is a different color, so you can make it for Valentine’s Day, or you can change up the colors to make it your own. The Red Heart Hygge Fur yarn is awesome and doesn’t shed like many fur yarns.

The crochet post stitch adds amazing texture and definition to the Mossy Oaks Rug. It’s soft and squishy and your feet will thank you. Made with acrylic yarn it’s easy care, so it’s awesome for a pet rug. By holding two strands of yarn together as one, the colors fade into each other in a very appealing way.

The Giant Cabled Pillow works as a couch pillow, a decorative bed pillow, or even as a floor pillow. My kids love laying on ours when they read. The pillow features broken rib sides and a cabled cable runs up the middle. The pillow is big and squishy and extra cozy. It’s also great for taking naps. So grab some big ‘ol needles and get to knitting this comfy pillow.

This was one of the first patterns I designed; I have updated it to make it easier to follow, and to use a yarn that is not discontinued. It was originally designed to take the place of a glass inset on a table at my friend’s tea shop. The ends can be made longer to make this a long table runner, or they can be kept as is for a short table runner or a table topper.

Many years ago I was in need of a rug at the foot of my sink, so I crocheted one. I love that rug! I’ve been meaning to write the pattern down, and now I finally have. It brightens up the kitchen, adds some padding in front of the sink and absorbs the water that gets splashed when the kids decide to help. I hope you enjoy your Mellow Yellow Rug as much as I’ve enjoyed mine.

Designed by Jessie Rayot

This stunning rug uses front and back post stitches to create an eye-catching mandala. The texture not only creates the beautiful pattern in the rug, but also makes it soft and squishy under foot. There are no cable stitches used, just regular post stitches and increases and decreases. This pattern is an intermediate pattern and requires a bit of attention to make. Trust me, it’s worth the effort! You can even make it in different weight yarns to change the size and make a wall hanging or pillow cover!

Bolster Pillow Cover ~ Free Knit Pattern

Bolster Pillow Cover
Knit Pattern
Intermediate Skill Level
Designed by Jessie Rayot

This bolster cover reminds me of a wrapped candy. I made it for Kyla’s Pink Princess room and she just loves her “Candy Pillow”. The main part is made with a seeded rib stitch, joined into a tube by grafting or seaming, and the ends are then picked up and worked in the round. The ends tie shut giving the whole piece a look of wrapped candy, and making it easy to remove the pillow for washing!

Bolster-end

Skill Level:
Intermediate

Yarn:
Red Heart Baby Econo ~ hold 2 strands together as 1

Needles:
US 11/8.00 mm (16″ recommended)

Other Supplies:
Yarn/Finishing Needle
Bolster Pillow Form

Gauge:
12 sts and 16 rows worked in pattern make a 4” square, but you can adjust the pattern for your own gauge

Size:
Any, the sample is a 19” long and 8” diameter bolster.

Stitches and abbreviations used:
PCO ~ provisional cast on
K ~ knit
P ~ purl

bolster-close-up

Getting Started:
The tube part of this pattern is started with a provisional cast on and then joined into a tube by grafting, so it has a seamless look. However, a “regular” cast on can also be used and the tube can be seamed together if that is what you prefer.

This can be made to fit any size bolster. First, determine your gauge using the stitch pattern in the tube section. Cast on enough to cover the length of the bolster. I actually like my pillow covers to fit tighter than the one seen here, so I would recommend making the cover a bit small for your pillow, maybe make it 9” long for every 10” of pillow.

Pattern:

Tube:
PCO 59
Row 1: P to end.
Row 2: Slip 1 knit wise, K1, [P1, K2] to end.
Row 3: Slip 1 purl wise, P to end.
Repeat rows 2 and 3 until piece wraps around bolster. For mine that meant 24”. (again, you may want to make yours fit tightly, so measure around the bolster and make it 9” long for every 10” of pillow.)

Remove PCO chain and slip stitches onto a needle. Graft piece together into a tube.

If you do not want to graft (and I don’t blame you!) start with a regular cast on, and bind off after your piece is long enough. Then you can just seam it into a tube in your favorite seaming method.

Ends: (make on both ends of pillow cover)

With the inside of the pillow facing you, pick up and knit into 1 stitch for each row from the inside of the pillow cover, just before the loop on the edge. Because we slipped the first st of each row, there is 1 loop on the edge of the piece for every 2 rows. So you need to pick up both posts going into each loop with your left needle, and knit into each one to turn it into 2 stitches.

Here is a video to show that:

Here are some pictures to show that as well:

pull-up-edge-loop
Pull up a loop on the edge to see the 2 sets of yarn going into the loop

insert-left-needle-in-bases-of-edge-loop
Insert the left needle into the 2 sets of yarn under the loop.

knit-into-first-loop
Knit into first stitch (first set of 2 strands of yarn)

knit-into-second-loop
Knit into second stitch (second set of 2 strands of yarn)

two-stitches-picked-up-from-first-loop
Two stitches picked up from first loop.

Continue
Repeat all the way around.

Once all the stitches have been picked up on one end, move your yarn to the front, and slip the last st on the left needle over to the right needle, turn your work so the outside of the pillow cover is now facing you.

Next Round: Knit all

Repeat the last round until the end is as long as the radius of your pillow. For me that was 4”

Eyelet round: K1, [k2tog, yo, k1] around.

Next Round: Knit all

Repeat the last round until the part after the eyelet round is about 2”, or the length you want.

Bind off knit wise.

Insert the pillow into the cover.

Make 2 crochet chains, braids, or i~cords that are about 18” long. Weave them through the eyelet rounds of the ends and tie them tight.

Enjoy!

Cabled Cable Pillow Inset ~ Free Knit Pattern

Cabled Cable Pillow Inset
Knit Pattern
Intermediate Skill Level
Designed by Jessie Rayot

This little cable pattern can be used in many ways. Here I have used it as a stripe on a pillow cover for my daughter’s Pink Princess Room. It matches the giant cable rug I made for her. The fun of this pattern is that it is a cable that cables around itself!

Free-Knit-Pattern-Cabled-Cable-Pillow-Cover

Skill Level:
Intermediate

Yarn:
Super Bulky yarn, a description of mine is in the getting started section.

Needles:
Whatever works with your yarn

Gauge:
Not so important, as this is really more of an applique.

Size:
Depends on your yarn, and how long you work

Stitches and abbreviations used:
co ~ cast on
K ~ knit
P ~ purl

Getting Started:
This is really just a cable pattern I came up with (though that does not mean someone else didn’t think of the same cable pattern before) which I made and then sewed onto a pillow cover. I will explain how to do that.

For my yarn, I started with 19 WPI (wraps per inch) or superfine lace weight yarn I bought from the Mill Ends bin, so that is all the info I have on it. I then used my Caron Embellish-Knit! to make the yarn into i-cord which was 4 ½ WPI or bulky weight.

yarn-before-and-after-i-cord
My yarn before and after making i-cord by running it through the Embellish-Knit! Machine.

I was covering a 16×19 inch pillow, so I needed a piece that was at least 17″ long. I followed the pattern and measured after each repeat until the piece was over 17”.

Cabled-Cable-Pillow-Cover-Free-Knit-Pattern

Pattern:
Co 12
Row 1: Slip 1 purl wise, p2, k2, p2, k2, p3.
Row 2 ~ 12 even: Slip 1 knit wise, k2, p2, k2, p2, k3.
Row 3: Slip 1 purl wise, p2, k2, p2, k2, p3.
Row 5: Slip 1 purl wise, p2, slip 1 to cable needle, hold in back, k1, k1 from cable needle, p2, slip 1 to cable needle, hold in front, k1, k1 from cable needle, p3.
Row 7: Slip 1 purl wise, p2, k2, p2, k2, p3.
Row 9: Slip 1 purl wise, p2, slip 1 to cable needle, hold in back, k1, k1 from cable needle, p2, slip 1 to cable needle, hold in front, k1, k1 from cable needle, p3.
Row 11: Slip 1 purl wise, p2, k2, p2, k2, p3.
Row 13: Slip 1 purl wise, p2, slip 2 to cable needle, hold in front, p1, k2 from cable needle, slip 1 to cable needle, hold in back, k2, p1 from cable needle, p3.
Row 14: Slip 1 knit wise, k3, p4, k4.
Row 15: Slip 1 purl wise, p3, slip 2 to cable needle, hold in back, k2, k2 from cable needle, p4.
Row 16: Slip 1 knit wise, k3, p4, k4.
Row 17: Slip 1 purl wise, p2, slip 1 to cable needle, hold in back, k2, p1 from cable needle, slip 2 to cable needle, hold in front, p1, k2 from cable needle, p3.
Repeat rows 2 ~ 17: until piece is desired length ENDING ON ROW 11.
Last row: Slip 1 purl wise, p4, k4, p2, k4, p5.
Bind off purl wise.

To make pillow cover:
Cut 2 pieces of fabric that are 1 ¼” larger than your pillow (my pillow was 16” x 19” so my 2 pieces were 17 ¼” x 20 ¼”.)

Pin cable strip onto one of the pillow cover pieces in the position you like. The best way to do this is to first pin the fabric piece onto a firm, flat surface, and to then pin the cable onto the fabric. The cable will be stretched, don’t worry, when the cover is on the pillow it will be pulled flat.

Top stitch the cable along the edge to the fabric, it will pull the fabric, but again, don’t worry.

stitching-line
Sew the cable onto the fabric close to the edge. Make sure to have the fabric on the bottom when sewing as the knit will catch on the machine if it is on the bottom.

Cable-sewn-on-cover
The cable sewn onto the fabric. You can see it pulls the fabric, but once the pillow is inside, it will pull the cable back.

Pin the two pieces of the pillow cover together, fronts facing each other, and sew around 3 sides. Turn the cover right side out and insert the pillow. Hand stitch the fourth side shut.

Free-Crochet-Pattern-Little-Fans-Pillow-Cover

Little Fans Pillow Cover
Crochet Pattern
Easy Skill Level
Designed by Jessie Rayot

Four squares of little fans stitches add a nice texture to this pillow cover. The sample in this pattern is sewn onto a fabric lining, and has a fabric back as well, instructions are included. However, there is no reason why you could not make 2 of the crochet fronts and stitch them together to make an entirely crochet pillow cover, if you can’t or don’t want to sew.

Little-Fans-Pillow-Cover-Free-Crochet-Pattern-JAH

Sizes:
About 18” by 18” or whatever size you want!

Yarn:
Lion Brand Heartland, 1 skein each of 2 colors. I used: Acadia and Denali

Hook:
US 10/J/6.00 mm

Gauge:
3 1/2 fans across and 5 rows tall in pattern to make a 4” square
(See this tutorial for the fan stitch pattern)

Other Supplies:
18″ square pillow
2/3 yd of fabric (enough for 2 20″ squares)
Sewing thread to match the fabric
Sewing needle

Stitches and Skills used:
ch ~ chain
dc ~ double crochet
sc ~ single crochet
st(s) ~ stitche(es)

Getting Started:
For a video tutorial on how to make the little fans stitch, see this Stitchopedia entry.

Little-Fans-Pillow-Cover-All-Done

Pattern:

Squares: Make 4

Foundation chain: Ch 25. If you are making another size, then ch a multiple of 4 plus 1.

Row 1: 2 Dc in 4th ch from hook, *ch 1, skip 3, 3 dc in next ch, rep from * until 5 chs remain, ch 1, skip 3, 2 dc in next ch, dc in last ch.

Row 2: Turn, ch 4 (counts as first dc, ch 1), * dc in next ch-1, dc in center st below the same ch-1, dc in same ch-1, ch 1, rep from * until 4 sts remain, dc in the last foundation chain.

Row 3: Turn, ch 3 (counts as first dc), dc in center st below the ch-1, dc in same ch-1, *ch 1, dc in next ch-1, dc in center st below the same ch-1, dc in same ch-1, rep from * to end, working the last dc in the 3rd chain of the starting ch 4 from the previous row.

Row 4: Turn, ch 4 (counts as first dc, ch 1), * dc in next ch-1, dc in center st below the same ch-1, dc in same ch-1, ch 1, rep from * until 4 sts remain, dc in the top of the starting ch 3 from the previous row.

Repeat rows 3 & 4: 5 more times, then repeat row 3 once more (15 rows total in piece)
If you are making another size, repeat rows 3 & 4 until your piece is the size you need, ending with row 3.

Border: Turn, ch 1 (does not count as a st) * sc in each of next 3 dc, sc in center st below the ch-1, rep from * across, the last sc will be in the top of the starting ch 3 of the previous row, {23 sc across top of piece}, ch 2, rotate 2 sc in the side of the last row, *sc in the side of the next row, 2 sc in the side of the next row, repeat from * down the side of the piece {23 sc down side}, ch 2, rotate, sc in each st across bottom {23 sc across bottom}, ch 2, rotate 2 sc in the side of the first row, *sc in the side of the next row, 2 sc in the side of the next row, repeat from * up the side of the piece {23 sc up side}, ch 2, slip st to first sc, fasten off.
If you are making another size, you will sc in each st at the top and the bottom of the piece, and you will need to determine how many sc sts are needed along the sides by doing some math. If your piece is square then use the same number of sc as used across the top and bottom. If it is not square then divide the number of sc across the top by the number of inches across the top, then multiply that number by the number of inches up the side. The result will tell you how many sc you need up the side.

Here is a video to show how to add the border.

Joining:

Square 1: With second color, sc in any ch-2 corner sp, [sc in each sc to next corner, (sc, ch 2, sc) in ch-2 corner] 3 times, sc in each sc to next corner, sc in ch-2 corner, ch 2, join with a slip st to first sc, fasten off. (25 sc on each side, with ch-2 corners)

Little-Fans-Pillow-Cover-One-Square-With-Border

Squares 2 ~ 4: Work in same manner as for square 1, joining as you go on adjoining sides. See the join as you go method here.

Your finished piece should be 14” square at this point.

You can find a video tutorial on this single crochet join as you go method here.

Border:
Row 1: (sc, ch 2, sc) in any ch-2 corner, [sc in each of the next 25 sc, sc in each of the next 2 ch-2 spaces, sc in next 25 sc, (sc, ch-2, sc) in ch-2 corner] 3 times, sc in each of the next 25 sc, sc in each of the next 2 ch-2 spaces, sc in next 25 sc, slip st to first sc. (54 sc on each side, with ch-2 corners)

Row 2: slip st into ch-2 corner, ch 1 (does not count as first st), (sc, ch 2, sc) in ch-2 corner, [sc in each of the next 54 sc, (sc, ch-2, sc) in ch-2 corner] 3 times, sc in each of the next 54 sc, slip st to first sc. (56 sc on each side, with ch-2 corners)

Row 3: slip st into ch-2 corner, ch 1 (does not count as first st), (sc, ch 2, sc) in ch-2 corner, [sc in each of the next 56 sc, (sc, ch-2, sc) in ch-2 corner] 3 times, sc in each of the next 56 sc, slip st to first sc. (58 sc on each side, with ch-2 corners)

Row 4: slip st into ch-2 corner, ch 1 (does not count as first st), (sc, ch 2, sc) in ch-2 corner, [sc in each of the next 58 sc, (sc, ch-2, sc) in ch-2 corner] 3 times, sc in each of the next 58 sc, slip st to first sc. (60 sc on each side, with ch-2 corners)

Your finished crochet pillow cover should be about 1″ smaller than the pillow cover needs to be. In this case that is 16″, as I made a 17″ pillow cover for an 18″ pillow. I like my pillows to be firm, so I tend to make the covers 1″ smaller than the actual pillow.

Sewing:

Cut 2 squares/rectangles of fabric that are 1 ¼” larger than you want your pillow cover. So for my 17″ pillow cover, I cut two 18 1/4″ squares.

Lay one of these pieces right side up. Place the crochet piece on top, also right side up. Pin it onto the fabric with ½” of fabric showing all around. The crochet piece will need to be pulled to fit this size. That is a good thing, as the crochet part tends to grow a bit as it is used, and by stretching it initially it will not start to sag after some use.

Little-Fans-Pillow-Cover-stitched-on
This is the crochet cover sewn onto the fabric, you can see the cover is a bit stretched.

Little-Fans-Pillow-Cover-from-back
Here is the back of that, where you can really see that the cover is gathering up the fabric. Don’t worry, once it is sewn onto the back, and the pillow it put in to stretch it all out, it will look great!

With a sewing machine, or by hand, top stitch the crochet piece to the fabric it is pinned to close to the edge of the crochet.

Place the second fabric piece on top of this piece, right sides facing each other. Pin it together. Sew with a 5/8” seam allowance, leaving one side open to turn. This will put the edge of the crochet IN the seam.

Turn the pillow cover right side out, and stuff in the pillow. Hand stitch the opening shut.

Free Pattern ~ Ruffle Knit Pillow Cover

| Free, Home Decor, Knit, Other Non-Wearables

Free-Knit-Pattern-Ruffled-Pillow-Cover-Square

Ruffle Knit Pillow Cover
Knitt Pattern
Easy Skill Level
Designed by Jessie Rayot

This fun ruffled pillow cover will add some flair to any room! It can be made to cover any size pillow you want. I have written the pattern for the pillow I was covering, but I have included notes on how to adjust the size. You can also change the yarn and the gauge if that is your wish. Have fun!

Sizes:
Whatever size you want! My sample covers a small pillow that is 10.5” wide and 7.5” tall

Yarn:
A ~ Red Heart With Love in Hot Pink 1701
B ~ Red Heart Super Saver in Burgundy 0376
C ~ Red Heart Super Saver in Pumpkin 0254

Needles:
US 10 ½ /6.50 mm circulars (or long single points, just be sure there is enough room for the width of your pillow.) Or whatever size works with your yarn

Gauge:
My gauge was 16 sts in 4”, but instructions are written for adjusting for your own gauge.
Stitches and Skills used:
co ~ cast on
K ~ knit
P ~ purl
K2tog ~ knit 2 together
Yo ~ yarn over
Kfb ~ knit front and back

Getting Started:
If you are using a different gauge or a different size pillow, your math will work as follows:
1) Make a swatch that is wider than 4”and at least 2” tall. Measure 4” across the middle of the swatch and count how many stitches are in 4”. Divide that number by 4 to find your stitches per inch. {my swatch had 16 stitches in 4”. 16/4=4, so I had 4 stitches per inch}
2) Measure across your pillow. Multiply that number by your stitches per inch, and add 2. This is your cast on amount. {My pillow measured 10.5” across. 10.5×4=42, 42+2=44. My cast on amount is 44 stitches.
3) Measure your pillow top to bottom. Write this number down as your pillow height. You will use it in a few ways as you make your pillow.

Pattern:
With color A, co 44 (see “Getting Started” to determine your cast on for a different gauge or pillow size)

Button Hole Section:
Row 1 ~ 4: Slip 1 knit wise, k to end. {for different gauge, work this row until piece measures ¾”}
Row 5: Slip 1 knit wise, k5, k2tog, yo, k13, k2tog, yo, k12, k2tog, yo, k7. {for different size or gauge, place the (k2tog, yo) in the places where you want your button holes}
Row 6 ~ 10: Slip 1 knit wise, k to end. {for different gauge, work this row until piece measures 1 ½” from co edge}

Top of Pillow Back:

Ruffle-Pillow-Cover-Ruffles

Fold down the top of the pillow cover 3”, with right sides facing, pin. Fold up bottom, with right sides facing, so that the button section is on top of the button hole section, pin. Use scrap yarn to hand stitch the sides shut. Be sure to catch the edges of the ruffles so that they lay down. Weave in ends. (Confession time: I tied knots in the ends! I know, knots in knit are bad, but these are inside the pillow cover, so go ahead, be knotty!)

Turn right side out, sew on buttons. Put pillow in the cover, button closed, and squish!!

Giant Cable Rug
Knit Pattern
Intermediate Skill Level
Designed by Jessie Rayot

I created this rug for my daughter’s Pink Princess Room. I used some of the copious amounts of Red Heart Super Saver yarn I have in my stash, but you can use 4 strands of nearly any worsted weight yarn you have. You can also play around with different weights and numbers of strands. The pattern will still work, you will just change the size of your rug. Suggestions are also included on how to change the size of your rug by increasing the rows and stitches.

Free-Knit-Pattern-Giant-Cable-Rug
Here is the rug in Kyla’s (not yet finished) Pink Princess Room.

Skill Level:
Intermediate

Yarn:
Red Heart Super Saver, or other worsted weight yarn. Hold 4 strands together as 1 when knitting

Needles:
US 35/19 mm

Gauge:
Not so important, as it is a rug, and you are just going until it is the size you want!

Size:
Any, the sample measures 38″x44″

Stitches and abbreviations used:
co ~ cast on
K ~ knit
P ~ purl
Inc ~ increase

Getting Started:
Holding 4 strands of worsted weight yarn together as one.

For the cables, I used my left index finger as a cable needle. 🙂

For help with the Join~As~You~Go method, see these videos.

To make rug longer or shorter, repeat rows 2~17 of center panel more or less times, than be sure to increase or decrease the row count of the remaining panels the same amount.

To make rug narrower, decrease the co amount of panels 2 and 4, and/or decrease the co amount of panels 1 and 5 by 3 or 6.

To make rug wider, increase the co amount of panels 2 and 4, and/or increase the co amount of panels 1 and 5 by 3 or 6. You can also add on more panels, or a wider border.

Center panel (panel 3):

Giant-Cable-Rug-Panel-1

Weave in all ends.

Add on a border.

I made a crochet border, but you could pick up the stitches and make a knit border. Just remember on the sides there is one loop for every 2 rows.

My crochet border was worked with 3 strands of yarn and a 9.00mm (N/M) hook. I worked it as follows:
On the sides I worked 1 sc in the second loop, [3 dc in next loop, 1 sc in next loop] all the way across the side, then 6 dc in the corner, for the top and bottom I worked 1 sc in the third st, [skip a st, 3 dc in next st, skip a st, 1 sc in next st] all the way across, then 6 dc in the corner.
