Crafty Boho Pillow Crochet Pattern

Patterns/DIY
8/8/2018

Hey everybody! Wow, I am so excited to be hanging out with you guys today on The Hook Nook Blog! My name is Ashley; I am the long-time crocheter, short time designer behind A Crafty Concept. I have been crocheting since I was about 10 years old when my Mamaw taught me how to make a chain. I never learned how to read patterns, so I just kinda made it up as I went. I loved learning how different stitches and techniques would come together to create something beautiful. I guess it makes sense that I just kind of fell into pattern design! 

I started selling my crochet patterns a little over a year ago when the messy bun craze hit, and people were asking me if I sold the pattern to my Claire Bun Beanie. I had no idea how to write up a pattern, but I researched what I could, took pictures every step of the way, had a close friend test it for me and voila my first crochet pattern was available for purchase.  I would have never thought pattern designing would steal my heart like it has! I love creating new designs, sharing them, and seeing them be brought to life by different amazing makers all over the world. 

I have continued to design patterns and even started a blog, so I can share free patterns, Etsy or business tips I learn, printables I create, and lots of other crafty tidbits! The maker community is my main source of inspiration and encouragement. I love talking and connecting with different makers every single day. I am so excited about the direction my business is going, and I am loving every second of it! 

I am happy to be sharing a new pattern with you guys today (it has been so hard keeping it a secret)! Introducing: the Crafty Boho Pillow. It is a great statement piece for any room, adding color, texture, and personality. You can mix & match with other throw pillows, or just use it on its own, and it will still look great! Here’s what you will need to crochet your own Crafty Boho Pillow.

Do not tie off.

Sew in the first tail from round 1. 

Remove your hook from the last stitch in round 28, lay the bottom piece of your pillow wrong side up and place the top piece on top, right side up. You bottom piece may be curling up on the edges but it wont matter once you attach your pieces and stuff your pillow. Insert your hook into one of the stitches on your top piece, grab your loop from the back piece, and pull through. 

CH 1 to secure. 

Starting in the same space where you just joined, begin to SC around, making sure to line up the stitches and go through both the front and back panels of the pillow. Once the pillow is about 3/4 of the way joined, stuff your pillow with poly fill. Continue to SC around the rest of the way until you have lined up and joined all 150 stitches. Join back into your first SC and tie off. Sew in the tail. 

Shape your pillow by massaging it and adjusting the polyfill. If you wanted your pillow to be more “shapely” you could use a round pillow insert instead of polyfill. 

Pom Pom Trim

Insert your hook into one of your stitches, grab your cream  yarn and pull through. 

CH 7, BOBBLE into the back bump of the third CH from your hook , CH 3, BOBBLE into the third CH from hook (the top of your first bobble), CH 1 to secure, slip stitch back into the bottom of the first bobble, CH 4, skip 4 stitches and slip stitch into the 5th stitch. Repeat around.

You may need to adjust/shape your “pom poms”. 

Now you have a fun and spunky new throw pillow that will add personality and texture to any room! I hope you guys love this pattern!
