Lavender Dreams

August 2010
Sport / 5 ply (12 wpi) ?
24 stitches and 36 rows = 4 inches in stockinette stitch
US 3 - 3.25 mm
70 - 90 yards (64 - 82 m)
To fit a 9.5" X 3" eye pillow


Worked flat with a central brocade panel and adorned with 5 buttons, this quick to knit eye pillow cover will make a great gift. The inner pillow, made of cotton, is filled here with flax seeds and dried lavender from the garden for a peaceful and relaxing scent. It can be gently heated in a microwave or chilled in the freezer. Try other combinations of grains and herbs such as rice and chamomile or buckwheat and peppermint. A variety of dried herbs and grains can be found at natural food stores. Commercial eye pillows of approximately 9½ X 3” will also fit.

For instructions on sewing your own eye pillow insert, see

You may be able to get two covers from one skein of yarn. Though if it is critical I would recommend buying an extra skein.

Errata For Rows 2 & 5 of Brocade Panel:
Both should read as follows with the changes in bold,

P2, * k3, p3; rep from * ending with p2.
