This design is for a pillow cover knit with alternating single rounds of stripes on the purl side of the fabric. The pillow could be reversible as well to have the knit side facing out if preferred. The pillow cover is knit in the round to create a tube, turned inside out to show the purl side of the fabric, and then the top and bottom will be seamed around a 16” x 16” pillow insert. By having the purl side of the fabric facing out, the purl dash lines create a cool effect with the alternating striping! 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 ease.
Any bulky weight yarn that you can get gauge with.
I used Knitpicks Swish Bulky (137 yds per 100 g ball) in Bare (Colour 1/C1) and Squirrel Heather (Colour 2/C2)
C1: ~92 grams/126 yards
C2: ~79 grams/109 yards
Yardage is an approximation. Different gauge will result in differences in yardage, but this is a good estimate to go on! Depending on the stretchiness of your yarn you may need to add a bit of length (and therefore extra yardage)
Row Counter (optional)
