Large Crochet Heart Pillow Pattern

I love making handmade gifts for the people I care about, and this pillow I made for my daughter.

This crochet heart pillow pattern has a beautiful texture, made using the Herringbone crochet stitch only on one side (we are not working with the reverse Herringbone stitch).

And the size of the pillow is big enough that it’s fun to hug, and can also be used as a decoration on a bed.

Crochet Heart Pillow with Super Bulky Yarn

Since I wanted to make this pattern work up quickly, I decided to use Super Bulky (#6) weight yarn, which emphasizes the beautiful texture of the Herringbone stitch.

You can use any super bulky yarn you have, I used Himalaya Everyday Big yarn. This is a soft anti-pilling acrylic yarn, and it comes in a beautiful variety of colors.

If you are looking for more yarn options, you can also use these yarns:
Lion Brand – Wool-Ease Thick & Quick
Bernat – Softee Chunky
Mary Maxim – Starlette Chunky

Finished Size 14’’ wide x 13” tall (35.5×33 cm)


Abbreviations (US)

ch – chain
hdc – half double crochet
hdc2tog – half double crochet 2 together: yo, insert hook into next st, yo and pull up a loop, yo, insert hook into next st, yo and pull up a loop, yo and pull through all 5 loops on hook.

How to crochet the [1hdc, 1Hsc] in same stitch – increasing at the beginning of the row:

Work 1hdc in the 1st stitch, then work Hsc in the same 1st stitch you worked the hdc as follows:
Insert your hook into the front left “leg” of the hdc you just worked (pic 1), keeping the loop on the hook (pic 2), then insert the hook into the same st where we made the hdc, yo and pull up the yarn up to the same height as the loop on your hook (pic 3), yo and pull the yarn through all 3 loops (pic 4).


How to crochet the Single Crochet Herringbone stitch:

Insert your hook into the front left “leg” of the last Hsc you made (or hdc, if worked right after a hdc st) – pic 1, keeping the loop on the hook, insert the hook into the next st (pic 2), yo and pull up the yarn up to the same height as the loop on your hook (pic 3), yo and pull the yarn through all 3 loops (pic 4).

Pattern Notes

  • Ch1 at the beginning of the row doesn’t count as a stitch.
  • The pattern is worked with the Herringbone stitch, worked only on its “right side” without working the Reverse Herringbone stitch.
  • […] – crochet the instructions within brackets into the same indicated stitch.
  • Optional – I have lined each panel of the pillow with fabric, to help prevent the stuffing from popping out of the pillow. This is an optional step, and you can choose to skip it.

Assembly

Lay both panels on top of each other, start by joining the yarn at the side above the bottom in the side of the second row, and work single crochet to join both panels as follows.

  1. Ch1 and work 1sc in the same place you joined the yarn. (See pics 1&2)
  2. 1sc across towards the bottom, work the bottom: [1sc, ch1, 1sc] in the bottom (magic ring). (See pics 3&4)
  3. Continue working sc around, leaving a 10” (25.4 cm) gap.
  4. Optional – this is a lining step to help prevent the stuffing from popping out of the pillow: turn your piece inside out, cut 2 heart shapes from fabric in the size of your pillow. Using a fabric glue, attach fabric to each side and let dry according to the instructions of the glue you are using. (See pics 5&6)
  5. Turn your piece back so the outside is facing out, continue working 1sc around, and leave a 7” (17.8 cm) gap. Fill your pillow with fiberfill.
  6. Once you have finished stuffing your pillow, continue working sc. Ss to the 1st sc and fasten off, weave in the ends.
