What Type of Pillow Form Should You Use?

Depending on the style of pillow cover you are making, you will need a specific type of pillow or pillow insert. Carefully read the list of materials on your pattern before you get started to ensure that you buy the correct size, shape, and material.

For example, several of the patterns in this list will only make a single front panel. For those patterns, you will need to buy a pre-made pillow (not just a form) since the back will show.

Other patterns are made from a front and a back panel, which you crochet together around your pillow form, or even in a pouch style. A blank pillow insert will work well for styles that fully enclose the pillow.

You’ll also want to consider your stitch pattern and if the pillow form will show through. For instance, the Filet Crochet Snowflake Pillow has open stitches that will show the fabric underneath. So you’ll want to choose a fabric that looks good with your yarn color and has enough contrast to show off the crochet design.

For the Waffle Heart Pillow, you’ll actually be creating your own zippered pillow case in a unique shape.

Making Crochet Pillows Your Own

There are so many fun ways to tailor these cute pillows to suit your personal style or the preferences of your recipient. You can customise a crochet pillowcase by adding embellishments. Add pom poms or tassels to each corner or tie on a fringed border. Crochet flowers would make a great addition, too!

You can also try making any of these pillows in different sizes by adjusting your hook size and yarn weight. Just make sure to measure and check your gauge so that you will have an idea of the size of the finished pillow.

With a wide range of stitches, colours, and patterns to choose from, you can really stretch your creativity and come up with something one-of-a-kind.
