Snowberry Cushion Cover

US TERMS (For UK terms, click on page 2 to at the bottom of this post)

It’s still winter here, which means more time to snuggle up on the sofa to read a book, watch a movie or just relax. Personally, I love snuggling up on my sofa and watch the cold winter wonderland from there with a cup of hot tea in my hands.

Homemade pillows and cushions are a great addition to your room and makes your sofa look cozy and unique.

With this pattern, the possiblities are endless, you can choose from so many great colors to suit your needs and match your room. 🙂

Difficulty: Intermediate / Advanced

Size: approx. 14.5” x 14.5” / 37 cm x 37 cm

Materials needed:

  • 5 mm (H) size hook (Get some beautiful Furls Hooks HERE)
  • approx. 161 yards/ 147 meters (80 grams) of Paintbox Yarns Simply Aran in Dolphin Blue (Color 1), 100.5 yards/ 92 meters (50 grams) of Paintbox Yarns Simply Aran in Washed Teal (Color 2) and 161 yards/ 147 meters (80 grams) of Paintbox Yarns Simply Aran in Duck Egg Blue (Get them HERE)
  • Yarn needle for weaving in ends
  • Scissors
  • 14” x 14” pillow form
  • extra yarn to sew the squares together

Stitches Used and Abbreviations:

CH = chain

ST = stitch

SP = space

SK = skip

SLST = slip stitch

SC = single crochet

HDC = half double crochet

DC = double crochet

SW Puff ST = Sideways Puff Stitch

RS =right side

WS = wrong side

{} =indicates how many stitches go into the same stitch or used to repeat a small set of instructions between these brackets the number of times given

Special Stitches:

Sideways Puff Stitch (SWPuff ST):

Before you make a sideways puff stitch you always have 3 DC STS

Yarn over hook, insert hook in indicated stitch (this is going to be the ST you put the first DC into, the base of the first DC, NOT the DC itself!), pull up a long loop through that stitch/space (3 loops on hook)

Yarn over hook again and insert hook into the same stitch, pull up a loop (same height as the previous one) 3 more times. You should have 9 loops on your hook.

Yarn over and pull through 8 loops, (2 loops on your hook), yarn over and pull through both loops.

If you are more visual, here’s a photo tutorial with step by step photos:

Gauge: 3 HDC = 1” (3 HDC = 2.5 cm)

Additional notes:

  • If a row/round starts with a Chain 1, it is not counted as a stitch, unless stated otherwise.
  • Slip stitches do not count as stitches.
  • Chain 2 always count as double crochet
  • US terms used throughout
  • At the end of the round, there’s going to be a note with the stitch count, so you can keep track of your work easily and avoid any mistakes. It’s written in a different color in bold.
  • Weave in the ends after every 8-10 rows to reduce the amount of ends to weave in at the end J
  • Notes are written in a different color in (brackets) to help you through the pattern.
  • When working on the corners, always remember that there might be a hidden stitch hiding under the corner stitches which is the first stitch of the previous row
  • You can start each round as I did in the pattern or you can use a standing stitch or chains, it’s totally up to you!

  1. I really like your work; each creation shows your expertise and your imagination is wonderful. I’m currently working on this pillow pattern and for an added extra treat your Anna’s Tale CAL. Thank you for sharing with those of us that love to crochet as well.

  2. I am in the process of starting “Snowberry Cushion Cover” and am confused about part of the instructions…2 DC, 24 DC „crosses”). Is there anyone who can advise me? Have a Blessed & Wonderful Day

  3. I really love this design for your “Snowberry Cushion Cover” and after reviewing the stitches I was wondering if this pattern could be turned into a woman’s crochet top? If so, I wonder what changes would be required for the neckline and the sleeve openings. Could you think about it and possibly suggest something? Thanks! I am also a member of your K.A.M.E. group on Facebook. So far I have enjoyed so many of your patterns but have not tried out any at this point.

    1. Hello Penny,
      Unfortunately, I have no experience of making garments so I can’t really help with that. Iva only made little cardigans for my daughter when she was a baby but that’s all I know.
      Sorry for not being able to help.
      Have a great day!

      Krisztina
