Completed pillow cover

Completed pillow cover

Make this 3 dimensional pillow cover using 4.5 mm hook and weight: 4 yarn

This is a very interesting looking design when complete.

It kind of resembles coral. Two alternating colors were used for this sample. There is no limit to the amount of colors that can be used for this pillow cover.

This is a very old pattern that could have other names it is known by as well.

Foundation Row: chain 32 for sample shown
Row 1: *double crochet into the foundation row, skip 1 chain* repeat from* to * across row.
Row 2: * double crochet in the top of the previous row and chain 1* repeat from* to* across row.
Row 3 - 20: repeat row 2 for 17 rows for sample shown.

Make 2 the same for pillow cover - one for the front, one for the back, or use something else entirely if you don't want it reversible.

On one of the mesh covers continue with next steps.

Row 1: double crochet 3 times into the edge of the mesh stitch in a corner.* Turn 90 degrees and work 3 double crochet into the mesh * repeat from *to* around edge of pillow cover.

Row 2: skip 1 Row of mesh and work 3 double crochet into the mesh following the pattern established from the previous row.

Repeat row 2 for pattern progressively decreasing towards the centre of the pillow cover.
Sew the 2 sides of the pillow cover together inserting the pillow when sewing the 4 th side together. Weave in all ends.
