Crochet Cabled Throw Pillow Pattern

Free Patterns/ Home Decor

Cables are not just for knitters!  I’m in love with how beautiful chunky cables look when used in home decor.  I have a couple of 20″ X 20″ pillow forms lying around that I’ve been meaning to make covers for – for over year now!   So, I thought a pillow cover would be a great way to demonstrate how easy it is to create cables with crochet.  This pattern is a simple repeat of a 6 stitch cable and is perfect for anyone new to crocheting cables.   You will create a stunning throw pillow cover that will look incredible on any sofa or bed.  I know many of my followers are visual learners so I have also embedded a video on this page of me demonstrating how to crochet this cable stitch.

I have written out and posted the free pattern for this baby blanket below on this page.  However, you can also purchase the PDF file for easy printing and reading (and to support me to be able to continue to post patterns on this blog).  If you’d like to purchase the PDF file, click the “Purchase PDF File” button below.

Crochet Cabled Throw Pillow Pattern

What you will need

Here is what you will need to make one throw pillow:


Measurements

Each square will measure 20 ” X  20 ”

Special Stitches:

Front Post Treble Crochet (FPtr): Yarn over 2 times, insert hook from front to back to front around the post of the corresponding stitch below, yarn over and pull up loop [yarn over, draw through two loops on hook] 3 times.

Front Post Double Crochet (FPdc): Yarn over, insert hook from front to back to front around post of corresponding stitch below, yarn over and pull up loop [yarn over, draw through 2 loops on hook] 2 times.

Pattern:




Note: This pattern uses the Six Stitch Cable stitch.  For all of you visual learners out there, I have created a video tutorial on this stitch:

This pattern is for a 20″ X 20″ pillow form.  If you would like to make the cover larger or smaller, you can chain a multiple of 10 plus 5.  The beginning chain should be the length of the pillow form width.

You will be making 2 squares by following the pattern below:

Chain 55.

Row 1 (RS): HDC in third chain from hook and in each remaining chain. CH2 (counts as first hdc of following row) and turn.

Row 2: HDC in next stitch and in each remaining stitch until the end of the row.  CH2 and turn.

Row 3: HDC in next 3 hdc,  *skip next 3 hdc, work FPtr around hdc one row below next 3 hdc; working in front of FPtr just made, work FPtr around hdc one row below the 3 skipped hdc; HDC in next 4 hdc; repeat from * until the end of the row.  CH2 and turn.

Row 4:  HDC in next stitch and in each remaining stitch until the end of the row.  CH2 and turn.

Row 5:  HDC in next 3 hdc, *work FPdc around next 6 FPtr, HDC in next 4 hdc; repeat from * until the end of the row. CH2 and turn.

Row 6:  HDC in next stitch and in each remaining stitch until the end of the row.  CH2 and turn.

Row 7:  HDC in next 3 hdc, *work FPdc around next 6 FPdc, HDC in next 4 hdc; repeat from * until the end of the row. CH2 and turn.

Row 8:  HDC in next stitch and in each remaining stitch until the end of the row.  CH2 and turn.

Row 9: HDC in next 3 hdc, *skip next 3 FPdc, work FPtr around next 3 FPdc; working in front of FPtr just made, work FPtr around each skipped FPdc; HDC in next 4 hdc;repeat from * until the end of the row.  CH2 and turn.

Repeat rows 4-9 until your work measures 20″.  Fasten off.

Finishing:

Line up the two squares (make sure the right side is facing outwards) and sew up the seams for three sides of the pillow cover using some extra yarn and a tapestry (yarn) needle.  Insert the pillow form and continue to sew up the last side.  Weave in the loose ends.
