Crochet Pattern: Basketweave Pillow Cover

By Erin Burger – 5 Comments

This pattern is for a throw pillow cover that will fit a 12″ x 12″ pillow, which is a common throw pillow size. You can either purchase a bare pillow and cover it with the pillow cover you make from this pattern or stuff the cover yourself with fiberfill or your chosen stuffing.

The pictured pillow in the pattern features one color but since the back of your work isn’t going to be seen (it will be facing the inside of the pillow) you could use multiple colors without breaking off at the end of each row. Fancy this pillow cover up with three loud and large buttons, or if you would like to make a more understated cover use flat, monochrome buttons instead.
