How to Crochet a Pillow Cover Using the Alpine Stitch

Crochet enthusiasts are always looking for new and exciting projects to work on. If you're in search of something unique and richly textured, then the Alpine stitch pillow cover is the perfect choice for you. In this step-by-step guide, we will walk you through the process of creating a stunning pillow cover using the Alpine stitch. Get ready to dive into the world of crochet and create a beautiful home decor item that will catch everyone's attention.


Crochet can be a relaxing and enjoyable hobby that allows you to express your creativity. The Alpine stitch is known for its intricate texture, making it ideal for creating visually appealing projects like pillow covers. By following the instructions provided, you'll be able to create a pillow cover that showcases the beauty of this stitch and adds a touch of elegance to any room.

Materials Needed

Before getting started, gather all the necessary materials. For this project, you will need:

  • Soft and shiny yarn (such as Yarn Lane's Iced Coffee)
  • H hook or a 5mm crochet hook
  • Scissors
  • Yarn needle

Using the recommended yarn will ensure that you achieve the desired results, as the softness and sheen of the yarn add a unique dimension to the pillow cover.

Basic Stitches Refresher

If you're new to crochet or need a refresher, let's quickly go over the basic stitches used in this project. It's important to have a strong foundation in basic crochet stitches before attempting more intricate patterns like the Alpine stitch.

  1. Chain: The foundation of many crochet projects, the chain stitch is created by pulling the yarn through the loop on the hook.
  2. Single Crochet: Insert the hook into the specified stitch, yarn over, pull the yarn through, yarn over again, and pull through both loops on the hook. This creates a single crochet stitch.
  3. Double Crochet: Yarn over, insert the hook into the specified stitch, yarn over again, pull the yarn through, yarn over once more, and pull through the first two loops on the hook. Yarn over again and pull through the last two loops.
  4. Front Post Double Crochet: This stitch is used to create the raised texture of the Alpine stitch. It involves wrapping the yarn around the front of a double crochet from the previous row and inserting the hook around the post of the stitch to work the double crochet.

Starting the Pillow Cover

Now that you're familiar with the basic stitches, it's time to start working on the pillow cover. The first step is to create the foundation chain.

  1. Chain a total of 65 stitches. If you need a refresher on the chain stitch, you can refer to our beginner tutorials for detailed instructions.
  2. To begin the first row of single crochets, insert your hook into the second chain from the hook and pull the yarn through. This will create your first single crochet.
  3. Continue single crocheting across the row, inserting your hook into each chain and pulling the yarn through to form a single crochet. You should end up with 64 single crochets in total.
