Crochet cushions are great. There are so many different ways that you can make them. You can create a whole huge set and change them out regularly to keep your space seasonally decorated or just updated in fun new ways. Crochet pillows make great gifts for others; they feel really special and personal without being too personal. There are so many great crochet pillow patterns out there. Here are a few.

crochet mandala cushion free pattern

Mega Mandala cushion free crochet pattern from Red Agape. This is a fun, colorful crochet pattern that’s meditative to make and fabulous to enjoy. You could actually take almost any crochet mandala pattern and turn it into a crochet cushion by putting a pack on it. See 40+ crochet mandala patterns for inspiration if you’re interested in doing that. The one pictured below is a Mandalas for Marinke donation by Alice who used the Seafoam Mandala Pillow crochet pattern by Crochet Memories.

Frilly striped crochet pillow cover free pattern from Lazy Hobbyhopper. It’s important to note that you don’t have to actually make full crochet pillow – meaning that you don’t have to stuff them – but instead could make crochet pillow covers that are easily removable and can be changed out frequently using your existing pillows.

Fox cushion crochet pattern for sale by Little Doolally via LoveCrochet. Is there anything cuter than this fox crochet pillow? It could work just as well in a chic room for adults as it would in a nursery.

basketweave pillow free crochet pattern

Basketweave pillow free crochet pattern from Little Monkeys Crochet. This is one of my favorite crochet stitches. It’s fun to make and once you get going it’s got a repetition to the pattern that is so soothing. I love it one solid color but also think it would look great as an ombre!

  1. All of the pillow/pillowcover designs are so amazing and incredibly creative in every way! I just wanted to add some of our longtime favorites (I don’t know how to do a link, I’m sorry) which are found on the gorgeous ‘Color n Cream’ blog. Hers are all very beautiful, and our family especially loves what little one calls the 3-D flowers.
