Bernat Softee Cotton – 600 yards
I used Bernat Softee Cotton to make the pillow pictured but any yarn could easily be substituted with the modifications listed throughout the pattern.
If you have chosen a different yarn, make sure to adjust your hook size accordingly.
- Measuring Tape
- Yarn Needle
I used a Karleksgras Pillow (16” x 16”) from Ikea but any sized square or rectangular pillow could easily be substituted.
- Beginning chain DOES NOT count as a stitch
- I like to make my pillow covers 1 inch smaller than the pillow insert so it fits snugly, so I made my panels 15” x 15”
