New furniture needs a pillow refresh. Handmade? Store-bought? I looked at the normal places and found pillows ranging from $50-$90 (ok, so it was Pottery Barn). I saw nothing that I loved, and at that price, it better be something that I love! Being pretty sure I could knit with better yarn and come up with a design that is more to my liking, I developed a pattern!

For this pattern you’ll need some bulky yarn, big needles, and some pillow forms.
This pattern is actually three pillow patterns in one. Pillow 1 (pictured right) starts from the narrow edge and the stripes of the yarn are a little wider.
Pillow #2 starts the knitting on the long edge to create thinner stripes.
Pillow #3 is a slightly smaller rectangle, knit from the short side.
All three…bright and pillowy!
All of the pillows are knit with a little bit of negative ease so they stretch nicely over the pillow forms.
I finished by adding those spicy little corner tassels! See the pattern for more instructions!
