Bobble-licious Crochet Pillow Case Free Pattern

Bobble-licious Crochet Pillow Case Free Pattern

I am so excited to share with you this crochet pillow case pattern!

This crochet pillow case is actually one of my favorites. But surprisingly I didn’t plan to write a pattern for it. I designed it June 2019 this was even before I started my blog . At that time I had a vacation from work and It was eid and as per tradition we spend it at my grandmother and grandfather’s house. So I packed this pink skein and took it with me to make something. I started with no clue were am heading but the result was really good. A few Months after, as I was looking at my crochet corner (Where the pillow is right now). I realized how I loved it and decided to write a pattern and test the pattern to share it with you!! and I hope you like it!!

This pattern is part of bigger project that I have been preparing for a while. I am doing a room makeover on a budget using mainly crochet and some other DIYs!! I’am a big believer that our surrounding space affect our mood and productivity levels and I find my self more productive and happy when I have a place that is organized and looks pretty.

Also my room is the space where I work on my blog, sit down and chill, study, and even workout!! so basically If I don’t have a pilates class to teach or a family commitment I’ll be in my room (coz am an extremely introverted human being and I like it) :D. Hence I always want to add new things to my room, make it prettier and more functional that’s why I have created this room makeover series!!

Bobble stitch:

Yarn over, insert your hook into the next stitch, pull yarn through (3 loops on the hook);
again yarn over and pull yarn through 2 loops only, as if you are doing the first part of a double crochet (DC) (2 loops on the hook);
repeat it until you have 5 HDC on your hook and 1 initial loop (total 6 loops on the hook);
yarn over and pull through all 6 loops (1 loop on the hook – pull pretty tight, so your bobble really pops up); and sc in the next stitch.

Notes:

  • The pattern is written in us terms, However the hook size is in mm
  • Watch this tutorial and apply it through out the pattern to help you achieve straight edges
  • To create a smaller or larger pillow, add or remove multiples of 4 ch from the starting chain to increase or decrease pillow height.
  • If you want to make it longer you will have to add rows at the middle part where you alternate only between hdc and sc.

Pillow back

There are plenty of ways to add a backing to a pillow but since am a terrible sewer and I don’t have a sewing machine I chose to make another front but to even make it more interesting, functional and add variety I made it with a different color to mix things up!! this will give you more room to change things up. So that you are able to move your pillow from a place to another or a room to another. This would also be great if you get bored easily.
You may also make it a plain crochet back using sc back and forth till you reach the desired measurements (the same as the front piece).

I also used a zipper to be able to take it off and wash it if I want.

If you want to cut your crochet time in half!! you can use fabric and and sew it to your crochet front.

Or you can create an envelope opening using fabric or crocheted pieces.

If you want to use fabric to create and envelope back. You can follow this tutorial and you will find a list of the fabric measurements you need for each pillow form size ) in the description of the video (you will only take the second two measurements. the only change you are going to make is to sew it to a crochet front instead of the fabric front.

Now to assemble the two parts

You are going to lay down your pieces right sides facing each other. Now if you have two crochet pieces use a crochet hook and the method used in this video. If you have a fabric back just use a needle and matching thread.

Sew around 3 sides and turn the pillow case on its right side. Now if you are going to add a zipper use this tutorial. If not just insert your pillow form and continue either sewing or single crochet joining the two pieces together with a crochet hook

Tassels

And finally to make the tassels I used the tutorial in the pictures bellow. Click on the picture to go to a more detailed tutorial.

To attach it to the scarf you are just going to leave a long tail at the top of the tassel tie it tightly to the bottom corners of the pockets/scarf and weave in ends.

Here is another video tutorial for how to make tassels and attach them
