Geometric Pillow Cover Using Berroco Ultra Wool

Geometric Pillow Cover Using Berroco Ultra Wool

“Extra-dimensional style.”

In our Geometric Pillow Cover, alternating knit and purl stitches creates recurrent, graphic triangles. The ceaseless geometry seems to give this huggable pillow cover an extra dimension! Inspired by a traditional Scottish stitch, the Geometric Pillow Cover will still exhibit a modern style wherever you place it.

We held two strands of Berroco Ultra Wool together for a doubly huggable pillow cover. Ready to be put to work, Ultra Wool is a hardy, 100% superwash wool fiber with a nice 4-ply twist. Soft and machine-washable, it’s a truly family friendly fiber! plus, its saturated, heathered colors provide a great range of choices for any home.
