“Warmest hugs and kisses!”

This is the sweetest little pillow cover. Whether you’re giving it as a gift or setting it on your own sofa, it’s sure to elicit the warmest hugs and kisses! Super easy to knit, and using simple duplicate stitch for the x’s and o’s—or whatever lettering your heart desires—this pillow cover will be making your favorite corners all the cozier!

We chose to knit the XOXO Pillow Cover in Brown Sheep Lamb’s Pride. A sleeper favorite, we love the hardy durability and cushy comfort of this worsted-weight, single-spun yarn. The sturdy squish is perfect for an accent pillow! And the Lamb’s Pride color palette is full of rich classics, heathers, and fun accents.

Approx. 15”/38cm wide x 8”/20cm long, after seaming, to fit a 16 x 9”/40 x 23cm pillow form.
