Sandy Bobble Crochet Velvet Throw Pillow Free Pattern

Sandy Bobble Crochet Velvet Throw Pillow Pattern by Crochet For You.

Today I’m here to share my newest crochet pattern with you all. I love how this Sandy Bobble Crochet Velvet Throw Pillow turned out. It took a couple of months to finish because I wanted to get a modern look, simple texture but finally perfect pillow accent to our sofa. I just love the bobbles and ribbed lines between bobbles.

This is a removable throw pillowcase with buttons on the backside. I used velvet yarns approx 600 yards. And the finished size is 16 x 16″ so you need the same sized pillow form.

The velvet yarn I used for this pattern.
This yarn I ordered from eBay, (also available on Amazon) and not from a popular brand. I used Khaki color.

Yarn suggestion
When I checked the gauge, there was a little different between my gauge swatch and Bernat Baby Velvet yarn.

My gauge swatch (4” x 4”) with H-8, 5mm crochet hook was 15 sc x 15 rows. I think Bernat Baby Velvet yarn is perfect for this project than Lion Brand Vel-Luxe yarn

Lay the piece of work (RS) facing. Fold the pillow (long side first) from row 48 and the short side from row 1. Add pins before sewing both sides. With tapestry needle and a long piece of velvet yarn, sew each side together (both sides) of the pillow. Weave all the ends and flip right side out. Place and sew the buttons and you are done!
