This is a classic-styled pillow cover design that uses three (= trinity) different styles of cable stitches to create an interesting pattern that only looks complex.

The cover was designed for a 16” (41 cm) pillow form with extra width on the sides to accommodate button holes. The buttons make for easy removal of the pillow form so you can wash the cover!

The sample was knit with Hobby Lobby’s I Love This Yarn! for the front and Caron Simply Soft for the back. I would consider both of these to be a heavy worsted / light Aran weight yarn. I would recommend picking a yarn that has “bounce” (stretch) to make gauge less critical and to make it easier to pull over the pillow form.
