After scouring the internet for far too long for the perfect pillow covers to match my decor, I went stash diving and found the perfect color. I fell in love with this simple but elegant cable pattern. With the reverse stockinette background, the cable flows freely down the pillow. These pillow covers are virtually seamless as they are knit in the round. One end is closed using the three-needle bind-off and the other is closed using a crochet hook bind-off (picture tutorial included).

This pattern is designed for a square pillow although height can be adjusted easily by repeating the 6 round pattern more times.
The bottom seam will be slightly visible and have a little lip. Keep this in mind if you want to use the pattern on a rectangular pillow and lay it horizontally. One of the side seams in that case would be slightly visible.

Samples shown in sizes Small on a rectangular 11” x 15” (28 cm x 38 cm) pillow form and Medium on a square 17” x 17” (43 cm x 43 cm) pillow form.
