This free crochet pillow pattern uses a mud-cloth-inspired design to make a modern piece of couch flair!

What is mud cloth you ask? It’s a type of fabric that is made in Mali by actually dying fabric with mud. The result is graphic, tribal fabrics that have really caught on in popularity with the wanna-be world traveler crowd like myself.

While the tighter stitches that give the fabric some structure are slightly slower to create, this pattern is great for anyone who is just beginning to read crochet patterns. If you can single crochet and make a square, you can make this pillow! (Even the buttoned back of the pillow on its own makes a beautiful, minimalist cushion design.)

The tutorial and instructional photos illustrate how to re-create the exact mud cloth design pictured, but don’t be afraid to just check out the photos for general technique and then invent your own mud cloth designs!
