Crochet Pattern: U-Shaped Travel Pillow

By Rachel Choi – 4 Comments
Crochet this U-shaped pillow to enjoy a nap in an airplane, train, or even your office chair. This pillow is crocheted in the round as one piece and is made with tight stitches to prevent stuffing from falling out. Stuff your pillow to make it soft or firm. You can also customize your pillow by using different yarn colors or alternating colors after each round to create stripes!

Finished Size: 12” (30.5 cm) wide, 12” (30.5 cm) long, when stuff. Since different amounts of stuffing can be used, for a soft or stiff pillow, this measurement is approximated.

Skill Level: crochet skill level easy
Medium Weight Yarn (approximately 270 yards)
Crochet Hook G (4.00 mm)
Polyester Fiberfill

    I made a pillow similar to this one and gave it to my nephew and his wife as a baby gift (you know…for late night/early morning rocking sessions!) I stitched “DADA” in purple on one side and “MAMA” in pink on the other. They love it and use it regularly!
