Camouflage acrylic yarn is a popular choice among crafters who love the rugged, natural look of the great outdoors. Camouflage patterns have been around for centuries and were originally used by hunters to blend in with their surroundings while tracking their prey. Nowadays, camo patterns are not only used for hunting but have become a fashion statement and a popular design trend in home decor.

Crochet pillow covers are an excellent way to incorporate camouflage yarn into your home decor. They are easy to make, and you can customize them to fit your style and color preferences. Acrylic yarn is a great choice for pillow covers because it is durable, easy to care for, and comes in a wide range of colors and textures.

Crochet some comfy Camouflage Socks


  • Camouflage acrylic yarn cakes
  • Crochet hook (size H-8/5.0mm)
  • Scissors
  • Tapestry needle
  • Pillow insert (to measure for sizing)
Camo Yarn Cake


  1. Determine the size of your pillow cover by measuring your pillow insert. Add an additional inch to each side for seam allowances. For example, if your pillow insert is 16 inches square, then you will need to crochet a 18×18 inch square pillow cover.
  2. Chain the desired number of stitches for the width of your pillow cover. For example, to make a 18 inch square pillow cover, chain 54 stitches (3 chains per inch).
  3. Turn your work and single crochet (sc) into the second chain from your hook. Continue to sc across the entire row. Chain 1 and turn your work.
  4. Repeat step 3 until your work reaches the desired length for your pillow cover. Make sure to measure your work as you go to ensure that it matches the length of your pillow insert.
  5. To add a bit of texture to your pillow cover, you can use the basketweave stitch. To do this, work 4 rows of sc, then switch to front post double crochet (fpdc) for the next 4 rows. Alternate between sc and fpdc until your work reaches the desired length for your pillow cover.
  6. Once your work has reached the desired length, fasten off your yarn and weave in any loose ends with a tapestry needle.
  7. Fold your work in half with the right sides facing each other. Using a tapestry needle and a length of yarn, sew the two sides of your work together. You can use the whip stitch or mattress stitch to sew your work together.
  8. To close the final side of your pillow cover, fold the work over the pillow insert and mark where you need to sew the final seam. Sew the final seam together using the same stitch as before.
  9. Once you have sewn all sides of your pillow cover, turn it right side out.
  10. Insert your pillow insert into the pillow cover.
  11. You can add any additional embellishments you desire, such as buttons, fringe, or piping, to give your pillow cover a finished look.
