Free Crochet Air Mattress

August 18th, 2009 · 12 Comments

I know, crochet and air mattress don’t seem like they go together!  But, if the air mattress is for your crochet monkey or your crochet monkey two, it’s a perfect match!

Obviously this is not for use in water, but your crochet monkey doesn’t want to get wet anyway, does she?  Maybe you can make her a little blanket and she can use it for camping!

Crochet Air Mattress

Crochet Air Mattress

Pattern created by Gayle

Size: Approximately 8 inches long, 3 1/2 inches wide


  • Worsted weight yarn.  I used Red Heart Super Saver, Color:  Shocking Pink
  • Stitch marker (I use a small piece of a contrasting color of yarn)
  • Crochet Hook – Size G
  • Fiberfill Stuffing

Gauge: Not important

Abbreviations: sc = single crochet, ch = chain, sl st = slip stitch, st = stitch

Notes: The Tubes are made in rounds.  Rounds are worked in continuous spirals, do not join.  Do not turn at the end of each round.

Tubes (worked in rounds) – Make 3

  1. chain 2.
  2. 8 sc in 2nd ch from hook. Mark first st for beginning of round and move marker up for each round.
  3. 1 sc in each sc around for 20 more rounds – 8 sc. in each round
  4. Sl st
  5. Finish each tube off leaving a long tail for sewing the three tubes together.
  6. Stuff with fiberfill. You can use the eraser end of a pencil or a dowel to push the stuffing all the way to the end.

Air Mattress Pillow

  1. Chain 12, turn
  2. sc in 2nd ch from hook and in the rest of the sc’s across, ch 1, turn – 12 (includes the ch 1) Do this for 15 rows.
  3. Fold the rectangle you just crocheted in half holding the top and bottom together and sc the top and bottom together – 11
  4. Finish off leaving a tail long enough to sew one side of the pillow together.
  5. Sew one side of the pillow together.  This leaves one side open.
  6. Stuff the pillow with fiberfill.
  7. Sew remaining side closed so that the stuffed pillow is now completely closed.

Why is this monkey wearing a knitted sweater during the summer?



  1. Sew the three tubes together.
  2. Sew the pillow to the tubes, closing the tubes as you sew them to the pillow.

You are finished!
