Cable Diamond Pillow – free crochet pattern

Hi friends!

I am a huge fan of crochet cables and today I would like to show you my new crochet design. Well.. maybe not that new because the first Cable Diamond Pillow I made a year ago but required some improvements and now can finally share with you my new free crochet pattern. It was such a pleasure to crochet it up.

You can find the full, free pattern at the bottom of this blog post.

I was inspired by the look of knitted cables seen in many sweaters or home items. Crochet cables are used to achieve this beautiful intertwined design and the pattern of Cable Diamond Pillow is giving a modern twist to this traditional cable texture. It turned out so stunning and contemporary. Don’t this combination of crochet cables look gorgeous?

I am so pleased I learned how to crochet cables as they are simply incredible!  It was so much fun watching the cables build up and I hope this inspires you to try the Cable Diamond Pillow !

The pattern may look a bit complicated but I have for you a written instruction and a chart.

Happy crocheting!

Notes:
  • Pillow cover is worked in 3 separate pieces: FRONT, BACK TOP and BACK BOTTOM. They are seamed together with a running stitch.
  • This crochet cushion cover has four buttons to secure the envelope closure which allows for easy removal for laundering.
  • All even rows are single crochet rows and worked in indicated stitches 1 row below.
  • All FPdc(s) and FPtr(s) are worked in indicated stitches 2 rows below.
  • The number of post stitches is always the same as the number of skipped st(s) so finally the stitch count is the same (82) in every row.

FINISHING

  1. Block all the parts of your pillow to give them shape.
  2. Sew all parts together. Place all three pieces (FRONT, BACK BOTTOM, BACK TOP) on top of each other right sides facing. The BACK TOP (with buttonholes) should be in the centre. Mark corners and using a running stitch sew all pieces around. Next, turn inside out and sew one button beneath each buttonhole on BACK BOTTOM piece. Lastly, insert pillow pad.

  1. It’s beautiful! I feel like I need more crocheted/knitted pillows in my life:) What do you stuff them with? Or you buy a blank pillow and calculate the pattern to fit it?

    1. Thank you! Yes, exactly. I buy a blank pillow (for example from IKEA). Then make chain that long to fit the pillow and design all pattern.

  2. Hi, let me start by saying this pattern is gorgeous! I do have a question though. How big was your finished pillow? I’m trying to make them and I think mine are getting too large.

    1. Hi, thanks for your kind word! The finished pillow should be 40cm x 40cm size. Please check the gauge. It could be your crochet tension. Probably you need to crochet little tighter.

      1. I do have another question. You say in the beginning that you work the even rows one row bellow and the FPcrochet two rows bellow. Does this mean that you work row 4 into row 3 (the regular row) or in row 2?

        1. When you work Row 3 every post stitches should be worked in indicated stitches 2 rows below (this means in row 1) and every single crochet in indicated stitches 1 row below (this means in row 2). For Row 4 every stitches (single crochet stitches) should be worked in indicated stitches 1 row below (Row 3). Is it helpful? Please check the chart for this pattern. Maybe it helps you easier understand the written instruction.

  3. Sorry but i think there is something wrong in the pattern or i didnt get it right.
    In row 7, there are 2 skipped stitches that were not replaced, exactly after the second 5 sc, and this happened again at row9, which finally makes the row stitch’s number less by 2.
    Did i got it wrong?
    I really liked your pattern and i am so excited, i am waiting for your reply :(❤️

    1. Hi, I have just get through the pattern and for me everything is fine. Please, send me maybe a picture of your pillow and I will look closer at your work.

    2. I am having the same issue with row 7. I have tried this row three times now and doing it exactly as written. The two skipped stitches in the pattern should follow a FPDC shouldn’t it????

      1. Yes, I can see now! I checked the pattern one more time and, indeed, there were missing 2 FPdc(s) in Row 7 and row 9. I have just updated the pattern.
        Sorry! We are only human 🙂
