I got some fabulous new Amy Butler fabric to redo my office at home and was inspired to knit some pillows to complete the project. This striking little pillow can be a great way to get your feet wet with stranded knitting. Working in the round, six colors of cotton yarn are used to knit this fabulous, colorful tube, then the pillow is finished by working an applied I-cord around its perimeter. There is no seaming, only the 3 I-cord stitches to graft at the end! Video tutorials are available at pasticheknits.blogspot.com to guide you through all the finishing processes used in this pattern. The pattern includes a full color chart as well as detailed instructions. This pattern also has a companion pillow, the Bliss Circle Pillow. Both pillows were worked in Tahki Cotton Classic.
