Crochet Colourful Doily Pillow

What you need

Materials
1. Crochet yarn or thread
2. Crochet hook
3. Scissors
4. Pillow case
5. Hot glue gun

This project includes the following stitches (US terms) – double crochet (dc); slip stitch (sl st) and chain (ch).





Instructions

Round-1: Chain 8, form a ring and work 19-20 dc around it. Work a slip stitch and cut off yarn.
Round-2: Take a different coloured yarn. Make a slip knot and draw it through any chain from round-1. Chain 3 (counting 2 as dc and 1 chain). Work 1 dc into the next chain from round-1. Repeat *ch1, dc1 until you reach the last chain of the previous round. Work a slip stitch and cut off yarn.

Round-3: Take a different coloured yarn. Make a slip knot and draw it through any chain from round-2. Chain 2 (counting as one dc) and then work 1 dc into the same chain. Chain 1 and work 2 dc into the next chain. Repeat *ch1, dc2* until you reach the last chain of the previous round. Work a slip stitch and cut off yarn.
Round-4: Take a different coloured yarn. Make a slip knot and draw it through any chain from round-3. Chain 2 (counting 2 as 1 dc). Work 1 dc into the same chain. Chain 2 and 2 dc into the next chain. Repeat *ch2, dc2* until you reach the last chain of the previous round. Work a slip stitch and cut off yarn.
Round-5: Take a different coloured yarn. Make a slip knot and draw it through the chain between any 1 dc clusters from round-4. Chain 2 (counting 2 as 1 dc). Chain 1 and work 2 dc into the loop between 2 dc clusters from round- 4. Chain 1 and work 1 dc into the next chain between dc cluster. Repeat *ch1, dc2, ch1, dc1* until you reach the last chain of the previous round. Work a slip stitch and cut off yarn.

What we’re basically doing is using a different colour and creating a different pattern in each round. You’ll need to keep in mind to increase the number of chains for each round to form the doily. Use your creativity and crochet a different pattern using only dc and ch for each round.
Stop crocheting when the doily reaches its required size. Slip stitch and cut off thread.


Make the pillow case and attach the doily on the front side of the pillow case.


Comments

  1. Why the glue gun? I think the pillow would be so much simpler, softer and stronger if the doily was stitched onto the pillow by hand in a few places to keep it attached.

    • I agree! Glue just makes it difficult to salvage the doily when the pillow has seen better days. I’ve had to deal with this situation and almost tossed the doily away from frustration.
