1. Crochet Heart Bolster Cushion

Doesn’t this pretty design just make you smile? With colorful hearts on the end and worked into the stitch pattern, this crochet design is fun to craft and equally fun to use.

2. Bulky Bolster

Thanks to bulky yarn, this easy crochet pattern works up very quickly. That yarn also adds extra cushion and comfort. This design uses basic crochet stitches, so it’s easy enough for even beginner crafters to create. Make one in every color that matches your home’s decor!

3. Braided Cable Block Bolster

A neutral color complements nearly any room’s style, but the design is anything but boring thanks to a beautiful stitch pattern. And the design comes with lots of options: In fact, you can make a basic closed end or a “candy wrapper” style. Plus, you can make it a cushion cover or follow the instructions to create your own bolster pillow.

4. Ruffled Bolster

Add some feminine flounce to your decor with this ruffled crochet bolster pillow. The design has great, cushy texture that adds to the coziness of the cushion. The crochet pattern uses some more advanced stitches (linked double crochet and invisible single crochet, for example).

5. Crochet Bolster

Many crochet bolster patterns are created seamlessly from top to bottom, but this one is different — it uses granny square motifs joined together to create the body. The ends are worked in the round and topped off with a tassel. The vibrant, colorful, creative design will stand out beautifully!

6. Crochet Cover for Bolster

This pretty crochet pattern is worked almost end-to-end in rounds, using the easy but interesting moss stitch. For some color blocking fun, add color change halfway through the piece. At the end, you’ll crochet the final motif, slip the bolster into the body, and then join that motif to the body to seal it all up.

7. The Bolster Bag

OK, this pattern is actually for a purse that looks like a bolster — but leave the straps off and you’ve got yourself a pillow. The pattern comes with two end options, giving you some versatility.

8. Rolling Hills Neck Pillow

Need a pillow for next support? This small crochet pillow is a good choice. If you want to try something a little more fun, this designer also has neck pillow patterns shaped like a cat, a squirrel and a fox.

    When I try using the search to find classes, all these dumb blog posts come up in the search results and they’re all broken with no links to patterns.why are you letting these clog up the search results? Why not take these pages offline for now? Please make a way for us to narrow search results to real classes only. I also don’t like how the ‘shows’ get mixed in with classes. These are like faux classes with very short ‘lessons’ that clog up my search results and don’t actually offer much useful content. I hope the site becomes better soon.
