Have faith, give hope, share love ! And put them all together in a tapestry pillow cover !

This pattern describes in US terms how to crochet a pillow cover as shown in pictures, made using 8 ply / DK soft acrylic yarn (wool or cotton will be suitable too) and crochet hook E (3.5 mm). Stylecraft Special DK was used to create the cover in the pictures.

Finished size will be approx. 16.5” (42 x 42 cm) including the edge, suitable for a slightly smaller sized square pillow insert. (for example 15.75” x 15.75” (40 x 40 cm))

The back side of the pillow cover is worked up in a striped pattern using matching colors and has an opening with button closure across the center, to easily insert / remove the inside pillow for washing.

The pillow cover is made in 2 separate panels, worked in flat rows (tapestry technique), then joined together and finished off with a nice edging all around.

Stitches used: chain, slip stitch, single crochet, half double crochet, tapestry technique, optional: blocking
