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.
