This post is all about how to crochet a modern and textured crochet pillow for your home.
I'm back with another pattern!
This pattern is so special to me because it is the first pillow pattern I ever designed. It used to be named the "boho pillow" but now has been renamed to the Poppy Pillow. I decided to take what I have learned and make this pattern even better for you. And now it is a free crochet pillow pattern!
This beautifully textured and modern pillow will look amazing in any color you choose. Since it is a commonly used size, 16" x 16", it will look great on your couch or your bed. I can't wait to see your beautiful diy pillow in your own home!

Repeat row 2 until back panel is the same length as your first panel.
Fasten off and weave in ends.
- Place both panels together with the wrong sides together and the right sides facing outward.
- Insert your hook through both panels in any corner and attach yarn with a sl st.
- Loosely sl st around 3 sides, making sure to work through both panels.
- Before closing up the 4th side, place your pillow insert into the cover. Then sl st the final side closed.
