The pillow cover pattern has three stitch patterns to choose from: brickwork stitch, texture stripe stitch, or a classic cable and garter stitch. All stitch options of the Pillow Possibilities covers are knit flat from one end to the other, using either knit or purl stitches. Once your knitting is complete, you will then weave in the ends and block your pillow pieces. Once dry you will seam the open edges closed around your pillow insert and voila! Your beautiful pillow is complete!
