Very Nice Pillow, in English :)

I have worked this pillow with cotton yarn 8/9 and crochet hook 4.
The size is about 48cm and just right for a 50×50 pillow. I have used about 5 pieces 100 grams yarn.

You can use any yarn, keep in mind that the number of stitches varies for the size you want on your pillow.

I recommend you to test yourself.

(RS) = Right side

(OS) = Offside

 

Crochet 69 ch (the number of ch should be divisible by 6 + 3)

R1 (RS). 1 sc in the 2nd ch from the needle, continue with sc in each ch = 68 sc

R2 (OS). Start round with 1ch, continue with 1sc in each sc

R3 (RS). Start round with 2ch, continue with 1hdc in each sc

V13 (RS) Start round with 1ch, continue with 1sc, 1 fptr in fifth st on round 10 (remember that fptr forward crochet on this round should come directly over fptr forward which was crochet on round 9). Skip 1sc which is hidden, crochet 4sc, *1 fptr around sc which is immediately after fptr until just crochet on round 10, 1fptr around fifth sc on round 10 calculated from first fptr forward you just crocheted. Skip 2sc which is hidden, crochet 4sc*

R14 – 16 Repeat R10 – 12

R17 (RS) Repeat round 9

Repeat Round 7 – 32 Repeat until you reach the length you want. I have done 3 repeats.

Avsluta stycket med 2 varv fm, så början och slutet blir detsamma.

 

 

The back can crochet same as above, I have decided to crochet a different pattern.

Post the same number of stitches as above +1,

R1 (RS)1sc in the 3rd ch, 1hdc in each ch.

R2 (OS) Start round with 2sc, *1fpdc, 1bpdc*

Repeat Round2 until you reach the length you want.

I have chosen to crochet 2 pieces on the back to get inside cushion and close with buttons.

Crochet until it is about 20 cm left on the piece, cut the yarn to crochet / sew it in place. Remember to crochet / sew on the lower part of the back of your front piece. The second part should be so that it overlaps the second piece, so about 30cm. To get a buttonhole you work 3ch and skip 2 stitches evenly distributed over the piece. Make buttonholes 2 turns before finish.

When you work the lap after making buttonholes, work only with sc, around ch crochet 2sc . Crochet another row = finish with sc.

 

Good Luck!
