Crochet Cabled Throw Pillow Pattern

Crochet Cabled Throw Pillow Pattern

Cables are not just for knitting.  I’m in love with how awesome chunky cables look when used in home decor.  I had 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 this would be a great project to demonstrate how beautiful cables can look in crochet.  This pattern is a simple repeat of a 6 stitch cable and is a great project for anyone new to crocheting cables.

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:

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.
