Reading Pillow Pattern



This reading pillow pattern is THE perfect gift! It is unisex and it is appropriate for all ages. How many patterns tick all of those boxes??

I love that this reading pillow can be used to encourage children to read. I enjoy reading and will do so at any opportunity. However, I understand that not everyone loves a good book. This reading pillow pattern is still appropriate. Use it to hold remote controls for the TV or computer, pop the daily newspaper or a magazine in it. Children can keep their pyjamas in the pocket, or their special teddy. What about gifting it with a box of chocolates or a special photograph in the pocket?

Or you can do away with the pocket completely and just have a beautiful throw pillow. All you would need to do is increase the number of repeats on the pocket section to make it square.

At Sunflower Cottage Crochet, I hire experienced crochet artisans to test our patterns for accuracy and readability.  My crochet reading pillow pattern will teach you how to create the perfect gift for any occasion.  




My patterns all share the same layout which is easy to read and easy to find important information you need, such as materials needed, sizing information, gauge information, and special stitches used as well as how to do them.  


❤ SIZE:  

This crochet reading pillow pattern will create a pillow cover to fit a 16″ pillow form. The stitch multiple is included to help you adjust the size to suit your requirements.
