A square pillow cover, simple and quick to knit in stocking stitch and bulky yarn.

Decorate the front with a moss/seed stitch eight point star, outline it with a rectangle if you want to make a Union flag on the front, leave out the rectangle if you prefer a star.

Embroider additional stars on the front to suit your taste and to co-ordinate with your furnishings.

Choose four 1” diameter buttons to fasten the cover at the back.


It’s a simple-to make, written pattern, with lots of pictures to help you as you go along.
