Pattern Description:

"The Anchor Pillow" knitting pattern is perfect for any nautical themed decor. For a classic nautical look, use navy and white yarn. Or, this pillow would look great knit with any number of other color combinations.

I based the anchor knitting chart for this pillow off of a photo of an old brass anchor.

For me, the anchor represents a safe harbor, security and being home.

This is a two-color knitting pattern using the intarsia technique. Experience with intarsia knitting highly recommended!

This pillow is knit with super bulky weight yarn and big needles so it knits up very quickly.

**Experience with intarsia knitting highly recommended!! This pattern does NOT include how-to instructions for intarsia knitting.**

This pattern DOES INCLUDE detailed, step-by-step finishing instructions with close-up photos.

This pattern is written in standard U.S. knitting terms.
