Freebie Friday – YouTube Pillow


One happy student walked away with this YouTube pillow. Unfortunately it wasn’t the student who asked for it. I didn’t think anyone else wanted it so I threw it in the prize box. I know I said I wouldn’t take anymore personal requests BUT I’m telling myself it isn’t a personal request just because I’m making a new one and hiding it until this student makes it to prize box and then I’ll sneakily put it back in. I’m innocent I say!

It’s super simple to make so I’m almost ashamed to call it a Freebie Friday pattern but still…here it is. 


Make two rectangles in red. I used Caron One pound yarn but you could use any yarn in red.

The one pictured here has 24 rows made up 30 single crochets per row. I chain one at the end of each row. You could also make more rows with more stitches per row if yo want a smaller or bigger pillow.

The Triangle

Row 1: Ch 12, sc in 2nd ch from hook and in each ch across, ch 1, turn (11 sc)

Row 2: sc in each st across, ch 1, turn (11 sc)

Row 3: sc2tog (decrease),  sc in next 7 sts, sc2tog (decrease), ch 1, turn (9 sc)

Row 4: sc in each st across, ch 1, turn (9 sc)

Row 5: sc2tog (decrease),  sc in next 5 sts, sc2tog (decrease), ch 1, turn (7 sc)

Row 6: sc in each st across, ch 1, turn (7 sc)

Row 7: sc2tog (decrease),  sc in next 3 sts, sc2tog (decrease), ch 1, turn (5 sc)

Row 8: sc in each st across, ch 1, turn (5 sc)

Row 9: sc2tog (decrease),  sc in next st, sc2tog (decrease), ch 1, turn (3 sc)

Row 10: sc3tog (this is a decrease of all the stitches left) (1 sc)

Fasten off leaving a long tail and sew on to one of the red rectangles, centered in the middle.

Put your rectangles together and single crochet around both pieces, placing 3 single crochets in the corners. Leave an opening for stuffing and single crochet closed. Weave in all ends and you have yourself a pillow. 🙂
