After seeing a woman knit on the bus, I decided that I wanted to learn to knit also. So I did, and now I have my own knitting blogs, how-to videos - all about knitting!
Even if you don't live in a cottage in the country, this cute little pillow will add charm to any room in your home. There is a brief video demonstrating the stitch pattern used on the front of the cover, the looped edge bind off, seaming, and sewing on the button.This pillow cover is not hard to knit, but you should be comfortable knitting, purling, and working into the same stitch multiple times.
4-1/2 = 1 inch in stocking stitch on an unblocked swatch
315 yards of Worsted weight
I would like to make this for a ring bearer pillow for my daughters wedding. Can you give me instructions for a 8x8 pillow?
does this mean i cast on 63 stitches and how long should it be im a bit confused sorry
You cast on 60 as stated in the pattern, just be sure to work the first 3 and last 3 of those 60 are always knit. You'll have appx. 30 inches from the cast on edge.
I'm confused by the gauge. It says 4.5 inches in stocking stitch but doesn't say how many stitches should comprise the 4.5 inches.
It is 4.5 sts per inch.
wondering if anyone has made this pillow using a different worsted weight yarn and how the guage worked out.
I've made a couple with Lion Brand Wool-Ease with great success! It's the same weight as the Caron Simply Soft that is called for in the pattern, so it's a good substitution. I also made one with Berroco Comfort that turned out great.
this is gorgeous, instead of making a pillow I am going to make a bag using your pattern, I hope you don't mind. huge hugsgina xx
What a nice idea! You may want to consider sewing in a liner, the knitted fabric isn't all that sturdy.
I thought the same thing - this would be a cute bag. Or pillow :)
