Crochet Bolster Pillow

Crochet Bolster Pillow


crochet bolster pillow

This pillow is very easy and crochets up pretty quickly in a couple of evenings.
You can adapt this pattern to make any size pillow.
Crochet the circle ends and measure the circumference of the circle. The part where the circle is the widest.
My circles are 5 inches in diameter. Divide this number in half to find the radius. In this case the measurement is 2.5 inches. Now find the circumference of the circle by using the formula "Circumference = 2 π r" where r is the radius.
Google will calculate it for you. The circumference of this pillow is 15 3/4 inches and the length of the body of the pillow is 15 3/4 inches.
Just switch up the number of chains in the main body of the pillow to change how long the pillow is.
