DIY knitting tutorial: How to knit a pillow cover

Have you spent ages looking for a pillow that perfectly matches the interior of your home? The color, the pattern, the fabric, there’s just always something not quite right. In this tutorial, we teach you how to knit your own individual pillow cover, so you can decide what your new pillow should look like. For witty slogans or simply beautiful icons you can easily sew on one of our woven labels with text & symbol as shown on our pillow in the photo.


Materials for knitting your pillow cover


Abbreviations


sts - stitches
ch - chain stitch


Knitting pattern

Knit in garter stitch, i.e. knit all sts for every single row. When using a different type of wool, please take note of the description on the yarn label.


Front

For the cast-on row: Cast on 100 sts, then knit 50 sts blue and 50 sts orange.
When switching colors, make sure that both threads cross each other in the back (inside of the pillow cover). You can make the color changes in the middle any way you like. In our photo we changed colors after 30 ridges. After 80 ridges the work is complete and you can bind it off.

Back

Cast on 100 sts, always changing colors on the same side. Knit blue one row and back, then orange one row and back. Cross the different threads each time on this side and bind off after 80 ridges.

Your finished pillow cover

Place both pieces underside up on top of each other and crochet them together (single st 1 ch), then crochet another round in crab stitch into the ch below. 

Please note: Be sure to leave an opening at the bottom for the pillow filling, you can sew it shut after you’ve stuffed the pillow. All that’s left now is to sew on your woven label and your knitted pillow cover is complete.
