  4. Row 80: 40 TRs, Ls, R

Part 4: Adding the Flap

  • Add more rows if you want the flap to be longer.

Part 5: Cast Off

  • Cast off by making slip stitches in the back vertical loops of the stitches, as if to make TRs, but instead of keeping the loops on the hook, you slip them.
  • Note: Do not cut the yarn once you reach the end of the row, as you will use it to seam up the pillowcase.
  • Weave in any ends that you have from adding yarn, making sure they can’t worm out (work over at least 5 cm forwards and backwards 3 times).

Part 6: Assembling the Case

  • Fold up the piece along the two rows of double stitches. Use safety pins to keep the layers in place until you finish the assembly. Using the same hook, make Sc stitches around the edge of the pillowcase, going through either 2 or 3 layers, picking up both loops of each stitch.
  • When you reach the edge with double stitches, make Sc stitches in the horizontal loop between the stitches, which will create a beautiful edge along all the sides of the pillow.
  • For corners, make 1Sc, Ch1, and 1Sc in the same corner spot.
  • When you reach back to the beginning, all around the pillowcase, cut off the yarn and make an invisible join, then weave in the last end.

Part 7: Adding Snaps to the Pillowcase (Optional)

  • Optionally, sew three pairs of snaps, spaced 10 stitches apart, to keep the pillowcase closed.
  • Sew each snap side 10 stitches apart from the others and from the edges.
  • The snaps on the bottom are sewn on row 6 and the snaps on the top on row 80.

By following these seven parts, you’ll end up with a beautiful crocheted pillowcase that you made by hand. Enjoy your lovely creation!
