This design is for a pillow cover with two different textured sides. The front side is knit in stockinette with a center horizontal panel with some textured diamond shapes created using purl stitches. The back side is knit using the diamond brocade stitch. Both sides tie together with the diamond shapes and stitch patterns, hence the name the Facet Pillow! This design would work best with a solid, lighter colored yarn to really showcase the texture. The two sides will be knit up as separate squares and seamed together around a 16” x 16” pillow insert. Using Knit Picks Swish Bulky, this design works up in no time.
6.5 mm (US 10.5)
May need other size needles to meet
In stockinette, worked flat, blocked
4” x 4” (10 x 10 cm) = ~14 sts x 18 rows
Creates a pillow cover that is
approximately 16” x 16” (40 cm x 40 cm)
Note: the actual length measurement of
the pillow cover before putting it over the
pillow insert will be a bit less than 16” as it
is designed to have a little negative length
Any bulky weight yarn that you can get gauge with.
I used Knitpicks Swish Bulky (137 yds per 100 g ball) in Bare
~200 grams/274 yards
Yardage is an approximation. Different gauge will result in differences in yardage, but this is a good
estimate to go on!
