How many stitches do you need for an 18 inch cushion?
We made our cover with 36 stitches across to fit our 18-inch wide pillow. Continue with the basic knit stitch to cover your entire pillow, then finish by binding off. Next, fold the knitted piece in half lengthwise and stitch up two sides using a whip stitch to form a pocket.

How much yarn do I need for a pillow cover?
To begin your crochet pillow cover, you will need 3 skeins of Bernat Blanket Big, an 18×18 pillow insert, and either a jumbo 25mm crochet hook (or you could easily finger crochet this project). You will also need scissors but I worked in the ends with my fingers since this yarn is so thick.
Should a cushion cover be smaller than the cushion?
As a general rule, the smaller the size of your pillow cover, the less you have to size up on your insert. And, the larger the size of your pillow cover, the more you are going to want to size up.
