Crochet a Bobble Pillow for the Sweetest Dreams

pink crochet bobble pillow

We’re so smitten with this totally touchable pillow, we’re blushing! The pattern is worked from a chart, but don’t let that scare you away — it’s easier than you think!

Oasis Bobble Pillow

Pattern by Toni Lipsey of TL Yarn Crafts

Level: Easy

Size: 11¼” x 12″

What You Need

  • 2 balls of Sprightly Acrylic Wool Worsted (shown in Misty Pink)
  • Size 9 (5.5mm) crochet hook
  • Tapestry needle
  • Scissors
  • 12″ square pillow form
  • Pattern chart PDF
  • Gauge

    13 sts x 14.5 rows in single crochet = 4″


  • Bo – Bobble (see Special Stitch)
  • Ch – Chain
  • Rs – Right side
  • Sc – Single crochet
  • St(s) – Stitch(es)
  • Yo – Yarn over
  • Ws – Wrong side
  • Special Stitch

    Bobble (bo): Yo, pull up a loop in indicated st, yo, pull through two loops on hook, (yo, pull up a loop in the same st, yo, pull through two loops on hook) 4 times total, yo, pull through all 6 loops on hook, tighten loop on hook before proceeding. Push bobble to RS of work as needed.

    Pro Tip: Bobbles can be made by working various numbers of stitches within the bobble. The bobble in this pattern is essentially 5 double crochet stitches that are crocheted together. Watch the 4-stitch bobble demo in our class Next Step in Crochet and you’ll get the idea.


    Work each piece by reading chart and written instructions, as follows:

  • All odd-numbered rows are shown in chart. White squares indicate single crochet stitches and gray squares indicate bobble stitches (see Special Stitch).
  • All even-numbered rows are worked entirely in single crochet and are not shown in chart.
  • The first two rows are written out in detail and Row 1 appears in chart.
  • Begin each row with a ch-1 turning ch.
  • Turn at the end of each row.
  • Instructions

    Make 2.

    Ch 38.

    Work the Chart

    Row 1 (WS): Sc in 2nd ch from hook and in each remaining ch across, turn — 37 sc.

    Row 2 and all even-numbered rows (RS): Ch 1, sc in each sc across, turn. (37 sts)

    Row 3 and all odd-numbered rows (WS): Read chart.

    Row 44: Ch 1, sc in each sc across.

    Cut yarn, and weave in ends.

    Hold pillow panels with RS facing each other, lined up so Rows 1 are at the bottom. Seam along three sides. Turn the pillow right sides out, and insert the pillow form. Seam along the final side. Weave in any remaining ends.

    Pro Tip: There’s no wrong way to seam this pillow together, but we love the whipstitch because it’s so quick. Since this pillow is worked all in one color, it’s okay that it’s not totally invisible.
