Pattern Description:

This really is the perfect present for any occasion. It's quick to knit (really!), the materials are inexpensive and the pillow design will go with almost any decor style.

This pillow is knit with super bulky weight yarn and big needles. You'll be done with this pillow so fast you'll want to make more than one!

I designed "The Perfect Present Pillow" to give as a wedding gift for the daughter of good friends. After checking out her bridal registry at a couple of popular stores, I was able to get a sense of her style and favorite colors. I had the perfect yarn on hand to make a pillow for their new home.

Pattern includes step-by-step finishing instructions with close-up photos.

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

I used two colors for this pillow - Lion Brand Wool-Ease "Thick & Quick" in the color 'Glacier' for the front and Loops & Threads "Cozy Wool" in the color 'Fleece' for the back. The pattern will work with many super bulky yarns and may be knit all in one color or two colors.

I used a standard (inexpensive!) 14" x 14" pillow form. The finished pillow is slightly larger with the knitted cover.
