Chunky Throw Pillow Set – Free Pattern

Hey knitters! I’m excited to share my new chunky throw pillow set with you! These were inspired by those super cute, super chunky knit pillows from Target – you know, the ones we see and think to ourselves “I could totally knit that”. Well, now you can!

I wanted some throw pillows that had several different textures for the daybed in my office, so I came up with 3 simple designs – each varying in difficulty level.

Not into purling? The Stockinette pillow would be perfect for you! Want a little more texture or a new challenge? Try the Garter or Herringbone pillows!

These pillows knit up in almost no time at all. They are knit in the round, with two strands of yarn held together as one, then the open edges are seamed together.

I’ve included two video tutorials – one to walk you through how to knit Herringbone stitch in the round, and one that demonstrates how to seam the pillows.

Pro tip: If you double the length of your tail , you’ll have enough for the cast on AND to seam it closed at the end. Less ends to weave in! You can tie the extra length into a small bow to keep it out of your way until you need it.
