Have you seen some gorgeous knot pillows and wondered how you can recreate one for yourself? Then look no further. Knot pillows are great accessories and add comfort as well. There is a variety from sizes to fabric used.
Contrary to buying knot pillows, I prefer making them as it add personalization. Making something by myself always beats buying. This is why I decided to crochet this knot pillow and give you the easy to follow pattern so you can make one too.
Using only single crochet stitch, this knot pillow pattern can made by an absolute beginner. I used a velvet yarn for the pattern but you can use any yarn you have around. Just make sure it is a weight 4. You can also experiment knotting it in various shapes. Exciting right!
Single crochet 2 together (sc2tog): insert hook in the next stitch, yarn over and pull through the stitch (2 loops on hook), insert hook in the next stitch, yarn over and pull through the stitch (3 loops on hook), yarn over and pull through the three loops.
