Knit Stag's Head Pillow

This stagís head pillow cover knits up simply and quickly. Stockinette with a ribbed edge makes up the back, while the front is knit with two colours in mostly stockinette and a few texture stitches to create movement (a few cables and some purling to contrast with the knit front).

Measurements: To fit a 16" x 16" pillow.

Gauge: 4" = 17 sts x 23 rows

Materials: I used one skein of Patonís Classic Wool in Jade Heather (192m/100g), as well as a discontinued evergreen-coloured Bernat yarn (Soft N Cozy, 338m/170g) that I inherited (still worsted weight, but perhaps a touch heavier than the Patonís wool). If youíre going to use a 100g ball of worsted weight yarn, youíll need two skeins for the background colour.

Other Materials Required: Buttons

Hook/Needle Size: 4mm needles
