This Reversible Cozy Jumbo Yarn Pillow Case is the perfect beginner free crochet pattern. It uses only double crochet stitches and is very fast to make.
As the yarn is jumbo size and the hook is a 19.00mm, it is very easy to see and learn how to crochet without felling discouraged.
This pillow case is truly the perfect side to snuggle up in your bed and provide yourself with some nice homey flair. Now, I just have to figure out whether I am going to keep this Reversible Cozy Jumbo Yarn Pillow Case or whether it will be a gift for a special someone.
Maybe I should cozy up in it for right now, because it is so soft. I am not sure if I want to put it away or give it away. Well, I guess I have to get more jumbo yarn and make more Reversible Cozy Pillow Cases.
Well, if you are looking for me, I am in my bed sleeping on my new Reversible Cozy Jumbo Yarn Pillow Case. Doesn’t it look comfy?
Both sides use the same jumbo yarn which is called Chunky Luxe by Loops & Thread. I bought 3 skeins of each color you see which is moss and light grey. Although the light grey looks more like a shinny silver color.
This Reversible Cozy Jumbo Yarn Pillow Case really is the ideal quick gift project. Make as many or as little as you like and make a special someone really happy. And of course you can sell your finished product as well. These items with jumbo yarn really go like hot cakes right now.

Materials (click the names below to see which ones I used!):
- Chunky Luke by Loops & Threads which I found at Michael’s in the colors
- Moss (3 skeins)
- Light Grey (3 skeins)
- 19.0mm hook
- tapestry needle
4 dc x 2.5 rows = 5 square inches
Stitches used (US terms):
- ch = chain
- sl st = slip stitch
- dc = double crochet
Fits a pillow with the dimensions: 18×18 inches
Ch 19 with the light grey yarn
Row 1: 1 dc in each st starting from the 3rd ch from the hook, ch 2, turn (17 sts)
Row 2 – 9: repeat row 1
Change color to the moss yarn
Row 10 – 18: repeat row 1
Fasten off and weave in the ends.
Sewing it together:
Fold the long rectangle and half and sew the 2 parallel sides each together, such that you have an opening underneath where you can add the pillow in and out. I sewed the sides together using some very strong but thin cord as I did not want the sides to be too bulky.
Then I added 2 left over green yarn on the opening so I can tie the opening closed so they pillow does not fall out, but I can remove it any time I need to.
Feel free to use buttons instead, but I prefer ties like show laces to give it something different then normal pillow cases.
