Gather Your Supplies
For this corner to corner crochet pillow I recommend using Lion Brand Feels Like Butta yarn because it is incredibly soft and very easy to work with.
To make one pillow, you’ll need approximately 430 yards of yarn.
If you choose to substitute yarn, I recommend you stay in the worsted weight category.
Here’s what you’ll need:
- 1 skein Lion Brand Feels Like Butta, Royal Blue
- 1 skein Lion Brand Feels Like Butta, Red
- 1 skein Lion Brand Feels Like Butta, White
- 10″ x 10″ Pillow Form
- 4 mm Crochet Hook
- Darning Needle

This corner to corner crochet pillow starts at one corner and uses alternating color changes to create diagonal stripes.
You may choose to carry the yarn between color transitions to reduce the number of ends to weave in. Alternatively, you can fasten off at the end of each color transition and attach the new color when indicated.
The border is worked last and is made up of two rounds. For assistance with the border, have a look at this tutorial.
- Color A – Royal Blue
- Color B – White
