Here are a bunch of different ideas for knitting or crocheting cushion/pillow covers, some simple, some fancy…should be something here for everyone. I’ve separated them into two groups for easier browsing. First up are the crochet designs…
Parquet : Finished size will fit a 16″ square form, made with a skein each of four different colors (cotton yarn).
Medallion : You’ll find a pdf download towards the bottom of the page, this is sized to fit a 14″ diameter round form.
Zig Zag : Add a unique spin and a burst of color to your home decor with this diagonal zig zag design.
Rose : Layers of ruffly petals are worked in a shell stitch and then sewn onto fabric.
Granny Square Sham : Includes a reference for making the squares, here’s how to piece them together to make a sham.
Cush : Features a row of buttons so the cover can be washed easily.
Fisherman : Traditional fisherman-stitch design adapted to create this handsome cushion.
Aran : Bring home a classic Aran handknit and cosy up all winter long. Finished size is approx 40.5 cm/16 ins square.
Jacquard : Inspired by boudoir wallpaper, this is worked in two colours using a simple stranding technique.
Pinwheel : A round cover worked in 4 different colors (solid for the back), button center.
