When it's not quite sweater weather, I still like to find ways to keep myself surrounded by hand-knit goodies. This pillow cover is the perfect example! Its chunky knit texture and eye-catching colors instantly add a hand-knit vibe to my daily life.
The pillow cover is knit in two squares, the front featuring a fun chevron texture accented with bobbles, and the back in Stockinette stitch, both with matching color bands. The two pieces are then sewn around three edges, with the forth closed using a simple single crochet row, which is easy to unravel if and when you need to wash or change out the cover. If you don't wish to crochet, you can also sew the last edge closed.
The pillow is finished with a tassel at each corner, in the two accent colors. I chose to use two vibrant shades of blue against a cream background, but you can choose to knit the pillow in one color, or up to five color bands (as the bobble pattern is repeated five times). Instructions are also included for knitting this pillow in the round (starting on p. 5), so only the top and bottom edges will need to be seamed. . . . >
