16 of the Best Round Crochet Pillow Patterns Round Up

16 Circular Crochet Pillow Patterns to Make Over Your Space

Hi guys! This post is a collection of beautiful and trendy circular crochet pillow patterns. When I was first gathering patterns for this round up, I thought, “Oh there’s plenty of circular pillow patterns to choose from. I’m going to have such a hard time narrowing it down.” Boy, was I wrong. Circular pillow patterns are not very common in the crochet community, so I had to hunt for these patterns.

Pillows are a great way to add some warmth, colour, and texture to your space, to really make it feel like home. Traditional square and rectangular throw pillows are great, but there is something fun about a round pillow. Most of these patterns use textured crochet stitches, like the puff stitch, bobble stitch, and post stitches, while others focus on colour work. I hope you find one (or more) patterns that speak to you.

Buy a Round Pillow Insert or Make Your Own (Tutorial):

A few weeks ago, one of my crochet friends, Kay, emailed me to ask me about the Flower Power Pillow. This is a circular pillow that I designed to fit a 14″ round insert. Kay asked me a few questions, and then told me about her amazing hack: taking a square or rectangular pillow insert, and turning it into a circular pillow form. Have you guys heard of this? I was mind blown. Up until this point, I thought you had to buy your own circular inserts. They tend to be more expensive than the traditional square inserts, but I figured that it couldn’t be helped.

While I was putting this round-up together, I came across two tutorials for transforming a square/rectangular pillow form into a round one. The first is a written tutorial by Lilla Bjorn that includes step-by-step pictures. She shows you how to change a square pillow into a round insert, without using a sewing machine. She hand stitches the pillow form using the blanket stitch, to create a secure seam.

The second tutorial is a video tutorial by Sustain My Craft Habit. In this tutorial, she shows you how to change a rectangular pillow insert into a circular one, using a sewing machine.

If you do not have a sewing machine, but need more of a visual, you can watch Sustain My Craft Habit’s video tutorial, but use the hand stitching method instead of a sewing machine.
