Ever since my Mum taught me to knit and sew I have loved the creative process and experimenting with design.
I find pillow covers to be the perfect way to combine my love of design and the textures that can be created with a single strand of yarn. I especially love experimenting with cable patterns.
Embellish this simple to knit pillow cover pattern with buttons of your choice.
When I found these wonderful daisies at my local craft store I knew just what to do with them!! I knit the 14"/ 35cm square cushion cover using a a medium/#4/aran/worsted yarn in lilac, but make this pattern your own with your favorite color combination. You'll need about 100 buttons to make the design. I interspersed plain white with the daisies.
The pillow cover has a three button closure so that you can remove to change your decor or for washing if needed. Hand washing recommended.
Detailed instructions are provided for the pillow cover itself along with an actual size template for the peace sign motif.
