Free Crochet Pillows Pattern – Welcome Pillows

Any one else love to decorate for the holidays with their crochet makes?

I love to decorate my house, and I love crochet, so always try to find ways to incorporate the two.

These crochet Welcome Pillows have been a favorite for around-the-year holiday decorating.


Their are currently 12 different Welcome Icons to choose from, and all of them have full written patterns as well as easy-to-read charts.

You can do the two recommended panels that are included, or you can mix and match your holidays! 

Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, Easter, 4th of July, Spring, Back to School, Valentine’s Day, and St. Patrick’s Day are some of the holidays included. Any you would like me to add?



These pillows are considered an intermediate pattern because of the multiple colors.

I do tapestry crochet for nearly the whole pillow. I will have a few bobbins of black on either side of the witch hat/leaf/pumpkin/etc design and carry the black throughout the words. I also only have one strand of my main color and carried that throughout the project.
