Crochet Pillow Pattern

I designed this pillow especially for a friend of mine’s little girl who just loves unicorns – but then again who does not love a unicorn.  I made the Melly Teddy Ragdoll Rainbow Unicorn in 2019 and it was so popular with my little girl I thought I would make a pillow for her to snuggle. 

Make one for anyone you know who loves magic, rainbows and unicorns.  The pattern has step by step photos as well as helpful hints along the way as well as a print friendly version.  Choose one of two pretty colourways.

You are welcome to make the pattern in any yarn however depending on the yarn and your tension the size of the finished item may vary from mine.

The yarn I used is Vinnis Colours Tori – a 50/50 blend of cotton and bamboo. It is classed as chunky/bulky yarn, so you can substitute with any similar yarn – just check your tension for the body and adjust if you need too.

NOTES

  • My pattern uses US terminology.
  • Always read through the pattern before you start to familiarise yourself with it.
  • When working in the round, use a stitch marker or a running stitch marker to keep track of the rounds/rows.
  • Colours are for reference only and will vary depending on the light settings of your monitor/devices.
  • Some of the photo tutorials are from other designs or will show more completed parts, so do not worry about the colour or other parts – use them as a guide to check your work looks as it should.
  • The pattern was designed in a bamboo/cotton blend but can be made in any yarn. Just remember to use the correct hook size for the yarn you have chosen.
  • If you are working in thicker or thinner yarn your ragdoll size may vary.
  • Tension and hook size could also influence the overall size.
  • And lastly, COUNT your stitches and have loads of FUN.

HELPFUL TIPS

  • Secure starting ends as you go along.
  • When changing colours do not finish off the final stitch; add new colour and finish off the last stitch to complete the colour change.
  • The best way to make sure that your tail is long enough to attach the piece to the ragdoll is to run the yarn close to the edge of the piece and cut the yarn 2 ½ times the length.
  • Chain stitches and slip stitches do not count as a stitch unless otherwise indicated.
  • Stitch counts are at the end of each round/row, in parentheses.
