Chill Pill(ow) Free Pattern



They call me big poppa.


I designed the original chill pill in October of 2020 to cope with the stress of the pandemic and being a new mom. Fast forward to now... I have 2 children (both still in diapers) and I need something more robust for my stress. 😅 Something I can maybe scream into, or clutch while crying after a long day HAHA.




here's what you will need for this project:

-2 balls of Bernat Blanket Yarn

-22 mm safety eyes

-black yarn (for the mouth)

-a bunch of fiber fill stuffing

-10 mm crochet hook

-stitch marker

-sewing needle


terms used:

-ch: chain

-st: stitch

-sc: single crochet

-inc: increase


Let's begin!


Right Half of the Pill

using white (this is the half with the face)

R1: ch 2, sc 6 in the 2nd ch from the hook (6)

R2: inc in each st (*6 times: 12)

R3: inc in each st (*12 times: 24)

R4: sc 3, inc (*6 times: 30)

R5: sc 4, inc (*6 times: 36)

R6: sc 5, inc (*6 times: 42)

R7: sc 6, inc (*6 times: 48)

R8: sc 7, inc (*6 times; 54)

R9: sc 8, inc (*6 times: 60)

R10-20: sc in each st (60)

Fasten off and weave in yarn tail. Place safety eyes between rows 17&18 and rows 10&11 (about 6-7 sts apart). Embroider mouth.


Left Half of the Pill

R1: ch 2, sc 6 in the 2nd ch from the hook (6)

R2: inc in each st (*6 times: 12)

R3: inc in each st (*12 times: 24)

R4: sc 3, inc (*6 times: 30)

R5: sc 4, inc (*6 times: 36)

R6: sc 5, inc (*6 times: 42)

R7: sc 6, inc (*6 times: 48)

R8: sc 7, inc (*6 times; 54)

R9: sc 8, inc (*6 times: 60)

R10-19: sc in each st (60)

Grab the right half of the pill and sc the two halves together. When you have about 6 sts remaining, begin stuffing.



*Make sure you pull apart the stuffing as you go so your pill isn't lumpy!

Finish sc halves together once your pill is stuffed. Weave in yarn tail.


You're done! Please tag me in your posts @tinyfriendscrochet so I can see your JUMBO pill. 💜

I made one of these for my daughter to take back to college. She’s in the PA program and requested acetaminophen colors. Turned out so cute.

How do you get the “lip” where the two halves meet? Are you connecting on the second to last row on half one? Having trouble!
