Sofa Support

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!

Diamondweave Hat

Diamondweave Hat20160205_172929

Not tight enough to be a beanie, yet not loose enough to be a slouch, Diamondweave Hat delivers highly textured diamonds that float over background purl stitches. As you know, “textured” means you’ll be moving a lot of stitches around, so be prepared. But the payoff is a beautifully patterned hat that has depth and drama.
