As we all remember, I’m sure of, the pattern for this month was the ‘COTTAGE THROW PILLOW‘ made with the Tunisian Crochet technique. I have decided for this round up post to list both types of patterns instead of just Tunisian crochet. This ’round up’ post is going to be a little bit longer than normal because, I have found a few Tunisian Crochet patterns and a couple crocheted pillow covers.
The following patterns use the Tunisian Crochet technique and hooks. Since I have just learned this technique with the ‘Cottage Throw Pillow‘ I have not made any of them. I plan to in the future once I can get more Tunisian Crochet Hooks.
Tunisian Coffee Cup Cozy
This cozy is way cute and seems really easy to make. The width of it is not that wide; therefore you may not need to use a actual Tunisian Crochet Hook. Your loops should stay on your crochet hook with out slipping off.
Coffee cup cozy’s usually are pretty small and don’t use much yarn. I usually use scrap yarn when making cozy’s. This pattern is so easy it uses the Tunisian Simple Stitch and a 5.5 mm Tunisian Crochet Hook; or a 5.5 mm crochet hook. To make this simple yet really cute cozy click HERE.
Tunisian Crochet Pointy Pom Pom Hat
This hat reminds me of a little gnome or troll hat. I just love how it comes to a point, has ear flaps, and pom poms to add character. It uses what she calls a Tunisian Goblin Stitch. She does have a lot of pictures and a couple videos listed to help with the techniques. This pattern has 5 different sizes that you can make; baby, kid, teen, small adult, and large adult. They use the Purl Soho’s Worsted Twist or Purl Soho’s Worsted Twist Heather yarn. To make these cute, whimiscal hats you will need a 6mm Tunisian Crochet Hook, and a pom pom maker. For the written instructions for this pattern, follow on over with this LINK.
This pattern was made and designed by Purl Soho. Even the yarn was made by the same company. You can find their website HERE.
Dueling Colors Cowl
The Tunisian crochet makes this cowl look amazing. I love the ribbed look to it. While I was reading what materials were needed to make this cowl I noticed she had said a Double Ended Tunisian Crochet Hook. What in the world is that?!? I went to my best friend Google and searched. Its basically a long crochet hook with a hook on both ends. She has made a instructional video to teach the Double-Ended Tunsian Technique. It looks as though this pattern may be for the ones that are a little more advanced in Tunisian Crochet.
So to make this cowl you will need approximately 150 yards of ‘Red Heart Boutique Unforgettable – Color: Parrot‘ , approximately 150 yards of ‘Red Heart With Love – Color: Iced Aqua‘ , 8mm Double-Ended Tunisian Crochet Hook and of course your yarn needle to weave in ends. She has listed another set of videos to help with making the cowl. A left handed version and a Right handed version. To get this pattern please follow by clicking this LINK.
Now onto normal crocheted pillow covers.
Pillow-Basket Weave in the Round
Believe it or not this all done using double crochet, front post double crochet, and back post double crochet stitches. It is by no means actually woven together. I love the look of it; all ready thinking of making this with 2 colors. She has posted a lot of detailed pictures to help you along the way with this.
To make this pillow you will need a 9 mm crochet hook, she uses ‘Drops Andes – Color: Natural‘ , a pillow form (what ever size your making your pillow), our very best friend the yarn needle, and of course the pattern. The yarn she uses looks super soft just in the picture.
Larksfoot Stitch Throw Pillow
There is not one thing that I personally would change on this Pillow. I love the color pattern that she used for this pillow. It just all fits together. This one is a must have in the house some where pillow. If your color pattern in your home matches, then this is the pillow just for you. If you are a beginner crocheter this may not be the pillow for you, as it is listed as an intermediate pattern. If you are confident on learning it like I am I would love to see your finished product as I’m sure the designer would also.
To make this pillow you will need ‘Lion Brand Wool Ease Thick & Quick – Colors: Navy, Denim and Fisherman‘ approximately 100 yards of each color, 12″ pillow form, and a 8mm crochet hook. If you know the HDC and SC your good to go! No special stitches needed. This pillow cover is made in 2 separate pieces and sew’n together. It is a 2 row repeat for the colors. You can find the pattern HERE.
Woven Tassel Throw Pillow
I absolutely love this design. I need to make a few of these for my bedroom. This uses basic crochet techniques plus you actually are going to be weaving. Best of all, no loom needed to do the weaving. Just a yarn needle and yarn.
To make this throw pillow you will need ‘Red Heart Soft Yarn – Color: Charcoal, Light Gray Heather, Deep Sea, and Seafoam‘ , a 5.5 mm crochet hook, yarn needle, 18″ pillow form, sewing machine, 1/4 yard matching fabric (back of pillow). She does mention you don’t have to use fabric for the back. Can simply crochet the back piece.
I have added a couple extra photographs that she uses on her page to help you better decide if this is one for you! This has all ready been added to my Ravelry favorites! To make this beautiful throw pillow please follow this link.
I hope that you enjoy’d this post! I know I will be learning other Tunisian Crochet stitches. The technique is super easy from what I can tell. I can’t wait to see your finished products from this round up post.
