Basic Skills Necessary:

Pattern Description:

This bolster cover reminds me of a wrapped candy. I made it for Kyla's Pink Princess room and she just loves her "Candy Pillow". The main part is made with a seeded rib stitch, joined into a tube by grafting or seaming, and the ends are then picked up and worked in the round. The ends tie shut giving the whole piece a look of wrapped candy, and making it easy to remove the pillow for washing!
