  1. Chose a pillow and measure it.
  2. Knit a piece that will fit 1/2 or 2/3 of the pillow.
  3. Bind off that piece.
  4. Knit another piece that is slightly longer than what's needed to cover the pillow.
  5. Sew the pieces together, leaving the opening to slide the pillow in.
  6. Sew the hankie onto the pieces.
  7. Slide the pillow in.

  • If the pillow is for the home, add decorative buttons on the back.
