# Free Circular Crochet Throw Pillow Pattern

This circular crochet throw pillow pattern has a repeating round pattern. I’ve made mine up in shades of yellow, white and jute colored aran weight cotton yarns, but you can get totally creative when you replicate it!

This beginner friendly crochet cushion pattern is easy to follow, and produces something you’ll be really proud of.

## Your Crochet Cushion Kit List

- 3.5oz Rico Creative Cotton aran weight yellow (saffron) yarn.
- 3.5oz Lily Sugar ‘n Cream aran weight jute yarn.
- 3oz Lily Sugar ‘n Cream aran weight white yarn.
- 4mm crochet hook
- Bag of toy safe stuffing or cushion pad
- Tapestry needle
- Scissors/yarn cutter

These are the yarns I used, but this pattern will work just fine with any other yarn, including yarn scraps!

If you choose to use a round cushion pad, pick one that’s around 16 inches in diameter, as this should be about the finished size of your crochet throw pillow.

## Pattern Notes

We’ll begin with a magic circle, then you’ll use double crochet (US) stitches, and chains. You will form the shape of your throw pillow by increasing and then decreasing the rounds.

All of the color changes take place at the start of a round, so you’ll find those jogs are easily disguised within the pattern of the crocheted circular crochet throw pillow.

#### Abbreviations:

- ch – chain
- dc – double crochet
- cc – color change
- 2dc – increase by putting two double crochets into the same stitch
- dc2tog – decrease by putting double crochet two stitches together
- slst – slip stitch

## Finishing Off Your Crochet Cushion

Depending on your tension, you might find a small gap where the chain replaced each double crochet. If this bothers you, take the yarn needle and using the same colored yarn just weave this space smaller. Just don’t overdo it, or it will become more obvious!
