This 16"x16" (40 x 40cm) pillow cover incorporates the classic leaf pattern in an all over design. Its not a cable, but combines a variety of stitches to challenge the intermediate knitter. The pattern is written row by row, not as a chart. It may look complex, but it is a quick pattern to master and very satisfying to knit ... one of my favorites!

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.
