C2C Foot Pillow

Michael and I have a coffee table between our couch and TV, and we both like to put our feet up on it. After a while though it makes our heels hurt. This little C2C pillow was the solution! It’s super easy to work up and is only one panel that gets sewn on three sides.

Notes

You’ll need to know how to do C2C (corner to corner) crochet. If you have yet to learn (or need a refresher) you can learn here

Gauge is not important; you can add squares if you need.  Just make sure it comes out to be a square when you fold it in half.

Instructions

Row 1 – Ch 6, dc in 4th ch from hook. Dc in next 2 ch. Turn.

Row 2 – Ch 6, dc in 4th ch from hook. Dc in next 2 ch. Sl st to last square of previous row. Ch 3, 3 dc in side of square. Turn.

Rows 3-8  – Ch 6, dc in 4th ch from hook. Dc in next 2 ch. *Sl st to last square of previous row. Ch 3, 3 dc in side of square.* Repeat from * to * across. Turn.

You should now have a piece that is eight squares wide. We’re going to continue increasing on one side while decreasing on the other side to make a rectangle.

Row 9 – Sl st in the last 4 sts of the last row. *Ch 3, 3 dc in side of square. Sl st to next square* Repeat * to * across, including in the last square. Turn. You should still have eight squares across your row.

Your piece should look like this after row 9.

Row 10  – Ch 6, dc in 4th ch from hook. Dc in next 2 ch. *Sl st to last square of previous row. Ch 3, 3 dc in side of square.* Repeat from * to * across to last square. Sl st to last square. Turn. You should still have eight squares across your row.

Row 11 – Repeat row 9.

Row 12 –  Repeat row 10.

Row 13 – Repeat row 9.

Row 14 –  Repeat row 10.

Row 15 – Repeat row 9.

Row 16 –  Repeat row 10.

Row 16; your rectangle should be 8 squares by 16 squares. You will now decrease on both sides.

Row 17 – Sl st in the last 4 sts of the last row. *Ch 3, 3 dc in side of square. Sl st to next square* Repeat * to * across, sl st in corner of last square. Turn. You should now have seven squares across the row.

Each row should be one less square than the last.

Row 18 – Repeat row 17. Six squares across the row.

Rows 19-21 – Repeat row 17.

Row 22 – Sl st in the last 4 sts of the last row. *Ch 3, 3 dc in side of square. Sl st to next square.* Repeat * to * once. Turn.

Row 23 – Sl st in the last 4 sts of the last row. Ch 3, 3 dc in side of square. Sl st to next square. Do not fasten off.

Finished C2C rectangle

Fold the rectangle in half and line up the squares. Use bobby pins or something similar to hold the piece in place. Sl st through both sides. 3 sc in each square across. (21 scs) 

2 sc in corner. Turn the piece 90 degrees clockwise so you are working on the next side. 3 sc through both sides in each square across (24 scs not counting corner sts).

2 sc in corner. Turn the piece 90 degrees clockwise so you are working on the next side (this side should be the side that’s folded over). 3 sc through both sides in each square across (24 scs not counting corner sts).

2 sc in corner. Turn the piece 90 degrees clockwise so you are working on the next side. 3 sc through both sides in the first four squares (see picture above). Stuff the pillow with poly-fill (or scrap yarn, if you so choose). I like to overstuff my pillows. Continue to do 3 scs in each square across (24 scs not counting corner sts).

2 sc in corner. Turn the piece 90 degrees clockwise so you are working on the next side. 3 sc through both sides in the first square. Sc in the next square (it should be the square you started with). Sl st to first sc. fasten off and weave in ends.
