3 skeins of Super Bulky yarn
Size 19 straight knitting needles
24"x 24" pillow
1 square yard fabric
thread to match fabric
Gauge= 3 stitches per inch
K2, P2 for 62 rows
Fold the knit in half and sew 2 sides together with the bulky yarn. Set this pouch aside until the fabric pillow case is complete.
Fold the fabric in half so the part that will be on the outside is inside. Sew one of the sides and then stuff the pillow in the corner you have created. Making sure the fabric isn't pulled tight, pin the opposite side from the seam you just sewed. Remove the pillow and sew the seam you just pinned. You should now have a pouch for the pillow. Stuff the pillow into the pouch, fold each of the open flaps inward and sew them together.
I find sewing to be quite tedious and it really just isn't my thing. However, I hand sewed this pillow case and it only took about 30 minutes to complete even though my sewing skills are mediocre at best. You don't have to have perfect seams or stitches since you will hardly see this case from the outside. Hints of the fabric will show through the chunky knit but the details of the seams will not be visible.
Now you will stuff the pillow into the knitted pouch, taking care to fit the pillow snug into the corners of the knit and also ensuring that the knit is evenly stretched over the pillow. Using yarn sew the opening closed and your pillow is complete! This pattern is very simple and the pillow came out beautiful.
