Shabby Chic Shells Pillow – Crochet Throw Pillow Pattern



Skill level

  • confident beginner/intermediate
  • knowledge of chain, slip stitch, single crochet, double crochet – required
  • knowledge of shell stitch and v-stitch – helpful (explained in the pattern)

Yarn + hook

  • worsted weight (category 4) yarn like Red Heart Super Saver
  • at least 725 yards (655m)
  • size 5mm (US H) hook


  • adjustable, pictured using a 16″ (40cm) pillow form to make a 17″ (43cm) pillow


This cute little pillow design is what I like to call a “Goldilocks” pattern. Not too easy, not too hard. Not too modern but not too traditional. Super adjustable to fit any square pillow and perfectly suited to match a variety of décor from modern nursery to shabby chic.


You’ll love the engaging motif that’s just challenging enough for every level of crocheter and the seamless “join as you go” construction to close your pillow.


Use your favorite worsted weight yarn and a 5mm (US H) crochet hook to create this fixed, pillow cover.
