When winter time hits, I want my home to be the coziest of places. It’s lovely to look at the snowy weather outside from the comfy and warm space of my living room.
One thing that I love to pull out during the cold months to add a warm feel to my home are some knitted accessories; throws, afghans, and of course, knitted pillows!
When I find a knitted pillow pattern that I like, you better know that I’ll be sitting by the fire making a new, warm textured accessory for my home.
As I look around the stores for inspiration, I’m finding that the homemade look of beautiful knitted pillows are really popular right now. And I know I can save a ton of cash by making my own! Those knitted pillows from the stores are outrageously expensive!
This page has so many knit pillow patterns, that you are sure to find one you want to add to your own home. The free knit patterns range from beginner to intermediate to advanced knitting, so there is something for everyone!
You’ll find pillows to stuff with fiberfill as well as many knit cushion covers here. So whether you want something as a simple statement piece or a knit pillow pattern that adds flash and flare to your decorating, you are sure to find it.
Simple Statement Piece Knitted Pillow Patterns
If you are just starting out or looking for a simple statement pillow to warm your house, we have found many that fit the bill.
Those of you just beginning and who can knit and purl can easily make the Chunky Knit Pillow from Little Yellow Wheelbarrow. This simple knitted pillow cover can be knit up in a little over an hour and has no fancy seams.
Another free knitting pattern that is a statement piece is the Simple Knit Pillow cover pattern inspired by a pillow from Crate and Barrel and found at Just Crafty. I think this knit pillow cover looks professionally done, since the back of the pillow is made from canvas material.
Textured Knit Pillow Patterns
If you’re looking for something a bit fancier to warm up your home, check out the Button Up Chair Pillow Knitting Pattern from Yarnspirations. It’s an easy pattern to knit and has a button closure using large buttons to add a decorative touch. I think it is the perfect balance of simple and accessorized.
One of my favorite textured knit pillow patterns is the Aran Leaf Pillow by Yarn Inspirations. It is a free knitting pattern for intermediate knitters. This textured pillow has an elaborate triangle and tassel button detail that will add both elegance and warmth to your home.
Cable Knit Pillow Patterns
I think a cable knit pattern is one that adds a very warm feeling, whether it’s a sweater, blanket, or knitted pillow. There are several cable knit pillow patterns that you need to check out.
The Twisted Taffy Knit Pillow is one of my favorites. It’s considered an advanced knitted pillow pattern, and if you are a seasoned knitter, you’ll find this pillow to be a joy to knit up. It is sure to be noticed and will show off your excellent knitting skills!
The Cable Knit Pillow pattern from Willow Bloom Home is considered easier, but you will still need to have some basic knitting knowledge such as knitting and purling, as well as how to use a cable needle.
