    Description

    I love sunflowers! So bright and cheery and a reminder of warm, late summer days. I designed and hand knit this 16"x16"/ 40cmx 40cm Sunflower pillow cover used DK/light worsted/8ply weight yarn. Gauge is important for the cover itself, but you could use oddments of other yarns from your stash to make the petals and centre.

    The cover has an envelope closure so that it can be easily removed to change your seasonal decor or for washing if needed.

    The pillow is knit first and then each petal and the flower centre are knit separately and sewn in place to create the flower.
