Hi --
I was just wondering if anyone knows of a pattern for a simple knitted pillow case. I'm thinking of using some Peruvian cotton to cover a roughly 12 x 19 in. buckwheat pillow. Nothing fancy, just comfortable and fairly quick to knit up, preferably in the round. TIA.

I don't know of any patterns out there, but it would be easy to make one flat.

If you're interested..

I would measure my pillow, then do a gauge swatch.
Knit double the length of the pillow, then a few inches extra for the flap. Fold it in half, but not the flap part.. fold the flap part back onto the square you've made, then sew down the edges. Turn it right side out.

Did that make any sense at all?

Basically if you know how to sew, you can easily make it the same way as you would a sewn one.
