Boo Halloween Pillow Cover

This is Halloween…this is Halloween. Can you tell my daughter has been watching Nightmare Before Christmas on repeat for the last couple days? I’m not going to lie, I’ve watched Hocus Pocus too. We love Halloween, what can I say? As I mentioned in my last post, I made two new Halloween themed pillow covers this year and this is the second one…Boo! This pillow is a perfect compliment to Mr. Jack O’Lantern. The two together would look cute perched on your sofa or chairs.

Like the last pillow, this is an envelope style pillow cover.  Who has room to store a bunch of pillows for each holiday? Once Halloween is over just remove the cover, fold it up, and store away till next year.

Boo Halloween Pillow Cover


  • 3 Skeins Vanna’s Choice Yarn in Black
  • 1 Skein Vanna’s Choice Yarn in White
  • Size F Hook
  • Yarn Needle
  • Scissors
  • 20″ x 20″ Pillow Form


  • CH = Chain
  • SC = Single Crochet
  • DC = Double Crochet

GAUGE: 16 DC = 4″


  • The last stitch of the row is worked into the last stitch space, not into the top of the chain.
  • The chain does NOT count as a stitch.

Chain 77 (with BLACK)

Row 1: SC into second chain from hook; SC the rest of the chain; CH 1; turn (76)

Row 2: SC all; CH 2; turn (76)

Row 3-27: DC in all; CH 2; turn (76)

Row 28: DC in all; CH 1; turn (76)


  • Work from the bottom of the graph up, starting at 1/1 in the bottom right-hand corner.
  • All bobbles are a three double crochet bobble.
  • After you have completed the whole graph CH 1 and turn.

Here is where we start working on the bobble pattern.  Follow the graph for details on where to change colors.

Never worked with the bobble stitch before? Check out my Bobble Stitch Tutorial.


  • The last stitch of the row is worked into the last stitch space, not into the top of the chain.
  • The chain does NOT count as a stitch.

After you have finished the last row of the bobble pattern we will continue on and make the top flap.

Row 1: SC in all; CH 2; turn (76)

Row 2-25: DC in all; CH 2; turn (76)

Row 26: DC in all; CH 1; turn (76)

Row 27-29: SC in all; CH 1; turn (76)

Fasten off; weave in ends


With right side facing up – – Countdown 24 bobbles from the top; fold the top flap down; place a temporary knot on both sides at the bottom of the 24th bobble to hold the flap in place; then single crochet down both sides of the flap.  Now count up 24 bobbles from the bottom and do the same thing with the bottom flap as you did the top.  Because you have already sewn the top down it will be hard to count the bobbles so I found it easy to flip it over and count the squares that the bobbles make on the back.

Now that your pillow cover is complete, all that is left is to insert your pillow form.
