Crochet Pillow Covers

This past week I wasn’t at my best health (how sad to be unwell on Valentine’s Day), so I didn’t do any crocheting. But I always have some pretty crochet work to share!

crochet pillow covers

These two pillows with lacy covers were made by my mom a couple years ago. I think they look quite lovely on my bed! 

She used a symbol chart pattern from a vintage Russian magazine (it was actually still a Soviet magazine). The original pattern was for a blouse made of motifs, but my mom adjusted the pattern (she is quite clever with things like that) for pillow covers. 


  1. Dear Olga, sorry to hear you haven't been feeling well. Hope you are doing better!

    Thank you for sharing the lovely pillows your mom made. Amazing talent runs in your family!

  2. Beautiful pillows Olga!

    Would you like to read over and maybe test the ballet flat slipper pattern for me? Just to be sure there aren't any typos. If so, please let me know and I can email you the pdf pattern for free and you could crochet it all you want for testing it. If not, that's ok too. :)

  3. They do look lovely on the bed. Your mom did an awesome job.
