Crochet Pattern: Chair Cushion

By Rachel Choi – 26 Comments
This chair cushion crochet pattern is free for all to crochet! To make your chair cushion you will need to work each of the small squares separately. The squares are then stuffed and sewn together. You can make the cushion as firm or soft as you desire. Best of all, you can adjust the size of the cushion by adding more or less rows of squares as you see fit. Prior experience sewing crochet pieces together is a plus. crochet chair cushion

    Rachel…I can’t see the pillow! It’s too dark.

      It is really dark green, but shows up really well if you try lightening up your screen brightness. Or, if you have a laptop, tilt the screen.

    Rachel, I have sewn crocheted pieces together, but I have no idea if I am doing it the best (or correct) way. I haven’t found instructions on your site. Do you have any? Thanks so much for all your help.

    The cushion is black, so I cannot see any detail. Am I the only one?

    I guess I don’t exactly understand how a square is made in one piece.
