I lived in Texas for 13 years, but now call Colorado home, so adding this pattern to my Fly the Flag pillow collection, seemed the natural thing to do!! I designed this simple to knit 12" x 16" cushion cover using worsted/#4 yarn. With just knit and purl stitches, this pattern is great for a beginner. The body of the pillow is knit first with the yellow circle and red "C" knit separately and sewn in place. Instructions are written line by line, no chart to follow, with tips on the use of intarsia - how to change the colors on each row. The pillow cover has an envelope closure secured with three buttons allowing for easy removal to change your dcor or for hand washing. BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY Knit and purl work buttonholes SUGGESTED YARN 350 yards of Worsted weight COLORWAY Red, white, blue, yellow

Originally from the UK, and after almost 13 years in Texas, I now live in beautiful Colorado with my husband and sons. Easily outnumbered by boys in my house, I am queen of my little realm, hence the title Ladyship! 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.
