The pattern is for a pillowcase to match a 40 x 40 cm insert pillow.
Yarn: I have used sport/dk weight yarn
Hook: 4 mm
Gauge: ca 16 dc = 10 cm
In the pillow above I have used 3 colours: Aqua (A), white (B) and peachy orange (C). The colour sequence is: Two rows A, two rows B, two rows C and two rows B.
The grey pillow under has two colours in this sequence: Four rows grey and two rows white.
dc2tog (decreasing stitch): Yarn over, insert hook into st and draw up a loop, yarn over and draw through 2 loops. Yarn over, skip 3 st, insert hook into next st and draw up a loop. Yarn over, draw through 2 loops, yarn over and draw through all loops on hook.
With colour A ch 107.
Row 1: Dc in 4th ch from hook, dc in next 6 ch, dc2tog, dc in next 8 ch, *ch 3, dc in next 8 ch, dc2tog, dc in next 8 ch; rep from * 3 times.
Row 2: Ch 3, turn, dc in first dc, 2 dc in next dc, dc in next 4 dc, dc2tog, *dc in next 6 dc, (2 dc, 3 ch, 2 dc) in 3 ch space, dc in next 6 dc, dc2tog; rep from * 3 times, dc in next 4dc, two dc in each of the last 2 dc.
Repeat row 2, changing colours as you want (or as the pattern above).
For this pillow I crocheted 60 rows. (The number of rows depends on how much you would like it to overlap on the back.)
In this pillow I made an overlap of 5 rows.
Sew the side seams. I sew it with the inside out using whip stitch.
Turn the right side out and sew on some buttons. You use the holes in the chevron tops as button holes.
Insert a pillow, and Ta-dah!!! You're done!
I hope I have written this pattern right. Please let me know if you find any mistakes
