Pattern Description:

This stag's head pillow cover knits up simply and quickly. Stockinette with a ribbed edge makes up the back, while the front is knit with two colours in mostly stockinette and a few texture stitches to create movement (a few cables and some purling to contrast with the knit front).

Three skeins of yarn in worsted weight (two background, one foreground) will create a cover for a 16 x 16 inch pillow. This cover is knit with 4mm needles to make a bit denser fabric. If desired, a few buttons on the back edge will keep the cover closed.
