This Simple Seamless Cushion Cover really is seamless. Using a figure 8 cast on and a three-needle bind off with the cushion already inside, this cushion cover knitting pattern is knit closed around the pillow with absolutely no seams, zippers, or buttons involved. How cool! This free knitting pattern also uses stockinette stitch, so it's a fairly easy knitting pattern. Just choose a super bulky yarn that matches your decor and knit a cover around an extra pillow you have lying around the house, or use a new cushion insert. You'll have a new knit pillow before you know it.


Knitting Needle Size15 or 10 mm, Circular Knitting Needles

Clicking the link to get the pattern for this simple cushion cover took me to a site that I had not visited before. The pattern was presented in an easy to understand form and the supported photo was creatively done. I will enjoy looking around on this site to see what else I could enjoy making.

I love the look of knit pillows! I bought one a while back but it uses acrylic yarn, so it's gotten kind pilly. I can't wait to try making my own!

I know it is a designer choice to use chunky yarn and it is not necessary to use when you work the project. However, I love when I find projects that use chunky yarn because the size of the yarn makes the project go that much faster and I have no adjustment to make to get the same result with a different size yarn. Thanks for the project.

I have never done an eight figure cast on so I had to look it up. Does not look difficult and will have to remember it for future projects. This pillow is relatively easy and I like the look of it. There is such beautiful chunky yarn out there and I like the fact that you can knit it around the pillow as you go. Thank you.

I can really appreciate when a project looks professional and this is one of them. Attention to detail with the simple seamless cushion cover will make all the difference in your home decor. The pattern may be a little time consuming but in the long run, the results will be stunning.

What a great way to add texture to your cushions. All of the high end magazines are featuring wool cushions as the way to go. Love the seamless feature of these cushions and the fact that it is an easy pattern for those of us that are newbie knitters. Does anyone have a suggestion for the best wool to use on a cushion cover?

If you want to use chunky wool yarn for a cushion cover (the pattern uses pencil roving), you have several choices. I would suggest a wool-acrylic blend. They tend to be softer and do not shrink as much when you wash them. At least in my house, things need to be washable!

If you want the cushion to be more than decorative than I would definitely NOT use roving of any kind. I agree with above response to use an acrylic wool blend. I would add that 3 or more plies will give durability to your project. I used Knitpicks Mighty Stitch Superbulky (80/20 Acrylic/Wool) for a similar cushion cover and the recipient has told me that it has held up well.
