Cozy Shells Pillow, Free Crochet Pattern + Video

The Cozy Shells Pillow is a squishy and easy to make project that add a gorgeous handmade touch to your home.  This is a perfect project to use up all of those bulky scarps of wintry yarn.  Made as an easy to remove pillow cover, it slips on and off easily so that it can be swapped out for another one too!

Finished Sizing:
  • Finished & seamed pillow is 12 inches by 12 inches
  • Unseamed rectangle is a little over 12 inches wide and 28 inches long.


Multiple of 6+1

Ch 31 (for a 12 inch pillow form, if you have a different sized pillow form, use the multiple above to adjust as needed)

Row 1: In the 4th ch from the hook, work 2 dc. *Skip two ch then work a sc in the next ch. skip 2 ch and in the next ch, work 4 dc. Repeat from * until there are 3 ch left on the row. Skip the next two ch, and in the very last ch, work a sc.

Row 2: Ch 3 and turn. Work 2 dc in the sc from the previous row. *Work a sc in the center space of the fan from the previous row (area in between the posts right in the center). Work 4 dc in the sc in between the next two fans. Repeat from * to the end of the row. Work a sc in the turning chain space to finish the row.

Repeat row 2 until the piece is approximately 28 inches long (I worked 41 rows).

Fold ends of rectangle inward to create an "envelope" leaving an opening to put the pillow in and take it out easily. Seam along edges. Weave in any ends that remain.
