Instructions

  • Corner To Corner Square

Step One

This pillow is worked in the mini corner to corner stitch, regular corner to corner is made using ch 3 and 3 dc, the mini version uses ch and 2 hdc. A pdf graph is attached showing the pattern to follow.

I like to start my graphs in the lower left corner, I know some people start on the right but I will write the pattern as if I were starting in the lower left corner, feel free to follow the graph and work in your preferred manner. I am not giving a tutorial on c2c crochet in this pattern so if you are not familiar with it you may want to familiarize yourself with the stitch first.

Make 4 identical squares

Row 1: (bottom left square) begin with white yarn, ch 4, skip 2, hdc in 2 ch (1 white square)

Row 2: ch 4, sk 2, hdc in next 2, sl st in ch space from row 1, ch 2, 2 hdc in same ch sp (2 white squares)

Row 3: ch 4, sk 2, hdc in next 2, change to black yarn, sl st in ch space from row previous row, ch 2, 2 hdc in same ch sp, change to white yarn, sl st in next ch space, ch 2, 2 hdc in same ch sp  (2 black squares, 1 white square)

Row 4: change to black, ch 4, sk 2, hdc in next 2,  sl st in ch space from row previous row, ch 2, 2 hdc in same ch sp,  [sl st in next ch space, ch 2, 2 hdc in same ch sp] 3 times (4 black squares)

continue working in the same stitch pattern in the following colors

Row 5: 5 black squares

Row 6: 6 black squares

Row 7: white, black, white, black, white, black, white (4 white, 3 black)

Row 8: 8 white squares

Row 9: 9 white squares

Row 10: 10 white squares

Row 11: black, white, black, white, black, white, black, white, black, white, black (6 black, 5 white)

now you will begin decrease rows, to decrease you will slip stitch across the side of the last stitch then ch 2 and work into the ch space

Row 12: 10 black

Row 13: 9 black

Row 14: 8 black

Row 15: white, black, white, black, white, black, white (4 white, 3 black)

Row 16: 6 white

Row 17: 5 white

Row 18: 4 white

Row 19: black, white, black (2 black, 1 white)

Row 20: 2 black

Row 21: 1 black

  • Geometric Squares

Step Two

Layout the squares with the white squares on the outside corners and the black corners in the center. Stitch the squares together using an invisible stitch to make the pillow front.

The pillow front is complete, set aside.

  • Corner To Corner Pillow Back

Step Three

The pillow back is made in solid black using the same mini corner to corner stitch.

with black yarn work a square of mini corner to corner stitches 22 squares  by 22 squares.

  • Geometric Crochet Pillow

Step Four

Assemble the pillow

Lay the pillow front on top of the pillow back, wrong sides together. Starting in one corner, using white yarn, single crochet all the way around the outside edge, working 3 sc in each corner. When you have 3 sides finished insert the pillow into the cover, then finish working the last side. Finish off, weave in ends.
