  • Susan Bates Crochet Hook (I/9 or 5.5 mm)
  • Yarn Needle
  • Two 16 x 16" (40.5 x 40.5 cm) Pillow Forms

Pillow cover fits a 16" x 16" (40.5 x 40.5 cm) pillow form. 

1 ripple = 5 1/2" (14 cm) measured from peak to peak; 7 rows = 4" (10 cm) in pattern.

dc2tog = [Yarn over, insert hook in next stitch, yarn over and pull up loop, yarn over, draw through 2 loops] 2 times, yarn over, draw through all 3 loops on hook

1. Yarn quantities are sufficient to make both Pillow Covers. 
2. Each Pillow Cover is made in a single piece. The straight edges of the piece are sewn together to form a tube. The rippled edges at one end are then matched and sewn together. The pillow form is inserted and the rippled edges at the bottom matched and sewn together.
3. To change color, work last stitch of old color to last yarn over. Yarn over with new color and draw through all loops on hook to complete stitch. Proceed with new color. Fasten off old color.

Stripe Sequence #1
Work 1 row with A, 1 row with B, 1 row with A, 4 rows with C, 1 row with A, 1 row with B, 1 row with A, 6 rows with E, 1 row with A, 1 row with B, 1 row with A, 4 rows with D, 1 row with A, 1 row with B, 1 row with A.

Stripe Sequence #2
Work 4 rows with D, 4 rows with E, 3 rows with C, 1 row with A, 2 rows with B, 1 row with A, 3 rows with C, 4 rows with E, 4 rows D

With A, ch 99 loosely.
Row 1 (right side): Dc in 4th ch from hook (3 skipped ch count as first dc), dc in next 5 ch, [dc2tog] twice, dc in next 5 ch, *2 dc in each of next 2 ch, dc in next 5 ch, [dc2tog] twice, dc in next 5 ch; repeat from * to last ch, 2 dc in last ch, turn—6 ripples. Change to B.
Row 2: With B, ch 3 (counts as first dc here and throughout), dc in first dc, dc in next 5 dc, [dc2tog] twice, dc in next 5 dc, *2 dc in each of next 2 dc, dc in next 5 dc, [dc2tog] twice, dc in next 5 dc; repeat from * to turning ch, 2 dc in top of turning ch, turn. Change to A. Repeat Row 2 and continue to change color as in Stripe Sequence #1, until all 26 rows are worked. Fasten off.

Work same as Pillow #1, changing color as in Stripe Sequence #2.

With matching color yarn, sew straight side edges of the piece together to form a tube. Flatten the tube, with seam at one side edge. Slide the seam over until the peaks on the top layer line up with the valleys of the lower layer. Sew the top rippled edge closed. Insert the pillow form. Sew the lower rippled edge closed. Weave in ends. 

Tip: If you want the Cover to be removable, sew the straight edges together for only about 1” (2.5 cm) at beginning and at end of edge, leaving about 14” (35.5 cm) unsewn in the middle. Sew in a 14” (35.5 cm) zipper.

I was wondering if I want to use this pattern for a 14 inch pillow, how many chains should I have in the starting chain? Thanks

This will be a labor of love in time for Christmas. I just love the color combination of this Holiday Chevron Pillow Pattern in maroon interspersed with gold, moss green and light khaki. It deviates from the usual green, red, white Christmas color.
