Crochet pillows are perfect for creating a particular style in your house easily. They are small and really quick to crochet, so you can experiment with the pattern.

Depending on the structure and design the result can be quite surprising and refreshing. Nowadays, one of the most popular styles is a simple Nordic one. It allows you to have modest furniture and to have a cozy atmosphere at the same time. It’s possible by adding little details such as pillows. Take a look at the examples below and search for links to free patterns under the pictures.

If you’re familiar with the corner-to-corner technique, this project will be a fast make for you! If you’ve never tried it, however, it’s a fantastic opportunity to learn, because it’s not as big as a blanket.
