Pattern Description from Interweave Online Store:
They begin with the garter-stitch buttonhole band (on the pillow front), then more stitches are cast on for the pillow back, the stitches are joined, and the two sides are worked together in the round. The live stitches are bound off together to seam the front and back together. Tassels appropriately finish these intentionally busy home-dec pieces.
