You will need:

Yarn - This pattern was written for Blue Sky Fibers Techno, a light bulky blend of baby alpaca,silk, and extra fine merino wool.

2 skeins Color B - Techno in Mood Ring
Approximately 210 yards were used out of these two skeins.

1 full skein Color A - Techno in Mellow

1 skein Color A - Techno in Wicked
Approximately 32 yards of this skein were used.

 

US 9 needles - I recommend using a circular needle with a 24” cable.  ChiaoGoo Twist or Knitter's Pride Dreamz are both great!

 

Tapestry needle for finishing

 

16” zipper.  I used Sallie Tomato’s zipper by the yard. These are great because you cut them down to the desired length, and they come in a variety of gorgeous colored tapes and metal pulls.  The teeth appear to be beautiful metal matching the pull but they are actually nylon, which is nice because you can sew right through it, and it won’t rust.  I used the Black Tape with Copper Teeth.

 

Sewing machine or hand sewing needle and thread for sewing in zipper.

14-16” pillowform

Finishing Up

 

Weave in all tails.

Back top piece to 9 x 16”

Back bottom piece to 6 x 16”

 

Sew in the zipper

 

Thread your tapestry needle with Color B and whip stitch several times over the zipper at the beginning and end.  This will keep your zipper a little more stabilized and give the pull something to stop on.  

 


Place the top back piece with the edge overlapping the top half of the zipper tape.  Pin in place and sew using a sewing machine, or by hand sewing using a running stitch.

 

Repeat for the bottom back piece, attaching it to the bottom half of the zipper tape.  Unzip the zipper halfway before proceeding to the next step, so that you will have an opening for turning the piece right side out later.

 

Assembling

 

Now that your zipper is installed and your back panel is in one piece,  place the front panel and the back panel Right Sides Together (it should look like a deflated inside-out pillow at this point).  

 

Using Color B and your tapestry needle, stitch all the way around the outside of the pillow using the mattress stitch.  This means you will be looking at the stitches of the top and the bottom panels lying on top of each other.  

 

Take your needle from top to bottom going through both legs of the stitch on the top panel, and both legs of the coordinating stitch on the back panel.  Then, send the needle from bottom to top through the next two stitches on both top and bottom panels.  Go all the way around like this, finishing with a knot if desired and then weaving in tails.

 

Turn your pillow cover right-side-out through the zipper opening.  Insert your pillow form and enjoy!
