On the Needles (Pillow Case)

My newest project is a euro size, cable knit pillow case in a fabulous forest green color. I got the inspiration from a pillow case I saw on Pinterest and made it my own with a customized pattern and guage to fit the pillow size of my choosing. I’m not sure yet if I’ll do the flap with buttons or make a zipper seam at the top, but this pattern just screams wintery warmth and I can’t wait to finish it. I’m using lion brand wool blend from Michael’s and it’s turning out gorgeous! It took about three try’s gauging out the correct measurements with a cable pattern since the cables make a normal guaging system shorter, but I finally figured it out! If you have any tips or comments I’d love to hear them! I can’t wait to show you all the final product (hopefully soon)!
