Make This Geometric Pillow | MrsAmberApple

I know we’re still in July, but autumn is coming —I honestly can’t wait. I’m crocheting two blankets right now, so when I magically appeared in the yarn aisle at Hobby Lobby I had to ask myself, “Amber what are you doing here?” There were so many pretty skeins of yarn I decided to make this pillow for a friend!

One blanket I’m crocheting is a bit intense, in skill and time. Sometimes it’s good to take a break and work on something easier. This pillow took me four days to complete; it feels nice finishing a project so fast! If you have a basic knowledge of crochet you can make this pillow in a few days as well. Let’s get started!

Yarn | MrsAmberApple

You will need to know how to chain and double crochet. For hand sewing the triangles together you will need to know how to slip stitch with a yarn needle. For this project I used a J 6.00mm hook. There are four different triangle colors: apricot, fleece, truffle and blue jean by the Yarn Bee. There are 48 triangles and 12 half triangles for this project. 24 triangles and 6 half triangles for each side.

Triangle pattern:

• Row 1: Chain 3 (this will always count as first double crochet), 1 double crochet in first chain, turn. (You will have 2 double crochet posts)
• Row 2: Chain 3, 1 double crochet in same chain stitch, 1 double crochet, turn. (You will have 3 double crochet posts)
• Row 3: Chain 3, 1 double crochet in same chain stitch, 2 double crochet. (4 double crochet posts)
• Row 4: Chain 3, 1 double crochet in same chain stitch, 3 double crochet. (5 double crochet posts.)
• Row 5: Chain 3, 1 double crochet in same chain stitch, 4 double crochet. (6 double crochet posts)
• Row 6: Chain 3, 1 double crochet in same chain stitch, 5 double crochet. (7 double crochet posts)
• Row 7: Chain 3, 1 double crochet in same chain stitch, 6 double crochet. (8 double crochet posts)
• Row 8: Chain 3, 1 double crochet in same chain stitch, 7 double crochet. (9 double crochet posts)

Triangle Crochet Pillow | MrsAmberApple

After you’ve made all your triangles lay them out the way you want your pillow to look, then hand sew them together using a slip stitch. Once both pillow sides are made, lay the outside of the pillow on the inside and slip stitch together. Leave a hole big enough for your hand to turn the pillow inside out and stuff with cotton or a pillow form. Stitch hole and you’re finished!

Leave any questions in the comments and I’ll try to answer as best as I can. I hope you make one, there’s nothing like a homemade pillow to make your space cozy. Happy nesting!

P.S. I’m sharing how I made our crate bookshelf tomorrow, see you then!
