Pattern instructions

NOTE: This pattern is written in British English. All measurements in charts are in cm. For conversion from cm to inches - click here. There are different terms for crocheting in British and American English. If this pattern includes crochet, click for "crochet terms" here. For this pattern in American English, please click here.

GARTER STITCH (worked in the round):
1 ridge = 2 rounds. Knit 1 round and purl 1 round.

See diagrams A.1 and A.2. Diagrams show all rows in pattern seen from the right side.

To avoid a tight cast-off edge you may use a needle ½ size larger.

Worked in the round on circular needle.
Cast on 184 stitches on circular needle size 5.5 mm with Merino Extra Fine. Work 2 ridges in GARTER STITCH - see explanation above. Then work A.1 in the round (= 46 repetitions of 4 stitches). When A.1 has been worked 1 time in height, work A.2 above A.1. Continue repeating A.2 in height. REMEMBER THE KNITTING TENSION! When piece measures approx. 31 cm, work 2 ridges. Cast off - read CAST-OFF TIP.

Fold the piece in each side. Sew top edge edge to edge in outer loops of edge stitches. Fill the pillow casing with a pillow and then sew in bottom edge.


= knit
= purl
