This 18"x18" (46cm X 46cm) pillow cover pattern has a challenging overall hexagonal design with integrated cable twists. If you are familiar with working cables and you need a challenge, this pattern could be it! It has a 24 row pattern repeat and is quite labor and yarn intensive. The pattern is written row by row, not as a chart. The four button envelope closure allows for easy removal if required. Knit as one piece the side seams are sewn to create the pillow cover.

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.
