Wallace Tartan Plaid Pillow – Free Crochet Pattern

It’s plaid season! I love crocheting plaid to display for the cold months and the Wallace Tartan Plaid Pillow makes for a beautiful winter decor piece!

This post contains affiliate links. At no extra cost to you, I may receive a small commission from purchases made through affiliate links, which helps me to keep bringing awesome free content!

Since I already designed the Buffalo Check Plaid Blanket, I thought it would be nice to have some plaid pillows. Although these pillows take plaid one step further, they still go perfectly together.

This Wallace Tartan Plaid Pillow is easily customizable, so you can make it match your decor! You can change the color pattern and size and truly make it something you will love for years to come!

This pattern was designed for the 12 Days of Christmas Crochet Patterns blog hop hosted by Fosbas Designs. Head on over to the Fosbas Designs blog to get the event details. A special thank you to We Crochet for the yarn support!

>>There is a pattern bundle sale, where all of the patterns from this blog hop are added to one PDF ebook or you can visit each designers website on their day and download them for free. This blog hop runs from October 27th – November 7th. My pattern PDF will be a free download right here on this site on October 28th only.

Red, Burgundy, and Black Tartan Plaid Pillow on Gray blanket with white pillows

Notes

  • Ch 1 at the beginning of every row and turn at the end.
  • Beginning chains do not count as stitc8hes.
  • Where asterisks appear, repeat the instructions between them.
  • This pillow can be made in any size, just add stitches and rows in counts of 22. 
  • Any yarn weight can be used for this pattern, just note the pillow size will change (smaller for thinner yarns, bigger for thicker yarns).
  • Make two plaid panels for a double sided pillow, or make a solid panel for the backing. Fabric can also be used for the backing.
  • See my blog posts for Creating Plaid and Color Changes for more instructions.

Special Stitches

Surface Crochet –  Insert hook from front to back, draw up a loop through the front of the project, move to the next space as indicated, insert hook from front to back, draw up a loop and pull through loop on hook (like a slip stitch). Repeat to the end.

SURFACE CROCHET

Start at Row 1 and work surface crochets up the center of each square to Row 57; you will be working over stitches 6, 17, 28, 39, and 50 (giving you 5 surface crochets). From row 1, you will insert your hook in every odd numbered row to the top.

BACKING

← Row 1: [With Black] Ch 56, sc in 2nd ch from hook and across, turn (55)  

→ Row 2-57: [With Black] Ch 1, sc across, turn; Fasten at the end of R57 (55) 

 >>For a rectangle pillow, fasten at the end of R34.    

FABRIC BACKING OPTION

Measure out a piece of fabric to match the size of your pillow top (I suggest flannel or fleece). Using a skip-it blade or other sharp object, poke holes in the fabric all the way around the edge, so they will line up with the single crochets of the pillow top, then work the border as instructed below.

BORDER

With Black, 

R1: Hold squares wrong sides together, so front side / right side is facing up: Attach yarn to any stitch, ch 1, sc in the end of each row and stitch around, sl st to join; to stuff: leave a big enough gap to insert the pillow or stuffing, then finish crocheting around. 

R2: Attach fur yarn, ch 1, sc in every other stitch and row around, sl st to join 

>>be careful not to pull a tight tension as this will cinch the project.

R3: Ch 1, sc arnd, sl st to join; Fasten.

Finishing

  • Hide all strings.

Happy Crocheting!
