Animal prints seem to be always in style, and what better way to add a great accent to your home than with this 16"x16" (40x40cm) pillow cover pattern? Worked in basic stocking stitch, it is knit in two colors using stranded color work/fair isle technique. A great step for the beginner knitter who has mastered Knit and Purl stitches and is ready for a new challenge. The cover is knit using worsted/medium/#4/aran yarn. Its made in three pieces, has an envelope closure and is finished with a single crochet border. A chart is included to show the placement of the zebra stripes. The pillow pictured here was knit in dark brown with ivory stripes, but it would look great in black and white or why not try something different like hot pink and black?!

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.
