Sometimes all a room needs is one cozy crochet pillow to make it your favorite room in the house.
A crochet pillow can give a plain beige sofa a retro vibe, or it can pull together all the colors in the room to unify the decor. They’re practical, too! These patterns can serve as a nice cushion for reading and lounging, or they can be your pup’s favorite new spot for snoozing.
No matter what you need your crochet pillow to do, there are plenty of styles and textures to pick from here on Craftsy!

You don’t have to be a kid to appreciate this cute bird. Crochet the pillow with a washable yarn if you plan to put it in a likely spill-spot, like the living room. The wing doubles as a pocket that you can store anything in from magazines and TV remotes to crochet hooks!

Brighten up any room in the house with a bold sunflower pillow. Designer FlyingDutchman even recommends it as a pillow for pets; just be sure you use washable yarn to make it easier to care for. And remember that sunflowers don’t have to be the traditional yellow. This would look great stitched in any color you’d like!

Felted or Unfelted Tree Pillow
It’s up to you whether you want to felt this nature-inspired pillow. If you want to felt it, remember to use 100% wool (not superwash). If you choose not to felt it, you can crochet it in whatever yarn you choose!
