Hello, fall y’all! And what is more fall than pumpkins? If you are a pumpkin flavor hater….I forgive you lol. But even if you aren’t about all the pumpkin spice lattes and pumpkin Oreo cookies, this is still a great pattern for you. The Hello Pumpkin Pillow is a festive fall décor piece for any chair or couch. And if you love everything pumpkin, also a way to show off that pumpkin pride.

Notes

  • Please note, matching gauge both horizontal and vertical can be difficult. Extra rows can be added at the top if needed so it is more important to match the stitch gauge versus the row gauge. This pattern also has some ease to fit over a pillow.

  • This pattern is worked from bottom up in rows and in two pieces. The front panel will also work a buttonhole flap to secure the top of the crochet pillow. The front and the back panels will be slip stitched together once completed.

  • After the end of each row turn and ch 1. The ch 1 does not count as a stitch.

  • Since there is a wrong side and a right side to the pillow panels, I used a combination of intarsia and carrying yarn across the back for the colorwork. Experiment and see what works best for you.

  • A burlap back can be used in substitute for a crochet pillow back.
