This pattern accompanies the Stitch Anatomy article on elongated stitches. The Indian Cross elongated-stitch pattern is not terribly difficult to work and produces a very lovely decorative design. I used a white pillow form inside the pillow cover for contrast, but it would be fun to play with different colors showing through. The garter texture makes for a cozy pillow, and the button opening means the cover can be removed and washed as needed.
