Why The Name Zaffre? 

I was looking for an interesting but cool sounding name that meant blue or had some kind of blue meaning behind it. When I googled blue names this one came up and I knew it was perfect! Plus, it sounds pretty awesome too!  Did you know what the name meant you saw it?

Supplies and Stitches for a Pillow Case

Yarn

To make this a fairly quick project, you will want to use Lion Brand Wool-Ease Thick & Quick because the chunky yarn is always a must for fast projects! Check it out below!

Coconut Buttons

If you have been around a while, you will know that I LOVE coconut buttons and put them on almost any project that needs buttons. For example, the Simple Button Hat. 

I just love the way they look so natural and give projects a kind of earthy, rustic feel. I usually get mine off Amazon, but a local arts and rafts store should have them too!

Stitches

This simple pattern which is the way I like to design all my patterns is perfect for beginners because of the simple crochet stitches it uses! You’ll be crocheting this pillow in no time at all! Promise.

You will need to know how to single crochet to complete this pillow cover. If you need a refresher on that stitch, please have a look at my YouTube Video course on “How to do a single crochet stitch.”

Techniques

The fringe details are pretty simple to add, but you can leave them off if fringe is not something you go for. If you’d like a tutorial on how to add fringe, that can be found here in my post: How to add fringe to crochet projects.

Finishing:

Hold the two panels together with the right side out (the side you will want everyone to see), join panels together with a single crochet stitch down along the long edge, 3 single crochets in the corner, the bottom, 3 single crochets in the other corner and back up the remaining long edge evenly. Do not close off the button closure of the remaining short edge.

Attach buttons securely with yarn to the back panel so they line up with the buttonholes on the front panel. I used stitch markers to mark off where the buttons would go so they are evenly lined up with the buttonhole openings.

How to Add Buttons to a Crochet Pillow

Along the front below the button flap, add fringe using ten 8-10 inch pieces of yarn as shown below. Or you can if you prefer a tutorial then use my “how to add fringe to crochet” tutorial found on the blog.  Trim up the edges of the fringe when you are done so that they are even across the bottom. 

You are done!
