Easy Ribbed Pillow – Free Crochet Pattern

Looking for a easy, basic pillow to add to your collection? This minimalist and modern pillow will be the perfect addition to any home. The classic and easy ribbing makes this pillow simple and not overwhelming, while the tassels keeps this pillow fun and interesting.

Every since I made the Amaia Beanie, I have constantly been thinking about how I can use the ribbed stitch pattern in other designs. And with the warmer months quickly approaching, making home decor pieces have been on my mind. So naturally, I knew I wanted to use the stitch pattern to make a pillow.

I love the simple and minimalist vibe of this pillow. Sometimes you don’t always need a statement throw pillow to make a room look put together and cozy.

This pillow is as simple to make as it looks! It is made from two panels single crocheted together. The panels are simple 4 row repeats and they only use half double crochets! It’s so easy and it’s really quick, which makes this such a satisfying project!:)
