Notes:


Materials:

  2. Sc  in the second chain from the hook, sc in each of the following chains until the end of the row. Ch 1 and turn.
  3. Repeat row 2 above until the piece measures 32″ long. Finish off.
  4. Fold the pillow cover and sew the edges first. 
  5. Place the form inside the cover and then sew the remaining opening. I keep the opening in the middle of the pillow like this because it will eventually be covered by the crisscrossed white bands.
  6. The pillow cover is now complete.

White bands (make 2):

  1. With white yarn ch 123 and join to form a circle which making sure not to twist the chain. The chain should fit around the pillow.
  2. Sc in each of the following chains around the circle. The piece is worked in the round, do not join.
  3. When you have completed 6 rows, finish off.
  4. Repeat the instructions above for the second piece.
  5. Place the white bands on the pillow creating a cross.

Bow:

  1. With white ch 141.
  2. Sc in second chain from the hook and in the remaining chains until the end of the row. Ch 1 and turn.
  3. Sc in each in each sc, sc2tog for the last 2 sc in the row. Ch 1 and turn.
  4. Repeat row 3 above until the piece has 8 rows. Finish off.
  5. Attach red yarn to a any stitch around the edge and sc evenly around making a border. Finish off.
  6. Fold the piece to make a bow and attach it to the center of the pillow.

The finished product should look something like this:
