This throw pillow's I-Cord piped edging, center shaped cable overlay, and textured fabric add plenty of visual and tactile interest, creating a conversation piece for your living space, which is also soft and comfortable to use. The design offers just enough knitting complexity to keep you interested, and enough of an easy fabric stitch pattern, to work on in spare moments. Its overlapped back flap and button closure, ensures easy insert removal, yet gives a secure closure. Sampled in the new, softer, Kraemer Yarns Naturally Nazareth, for the base fabric, with doubled Stotts Ranch Worsted (a soft and smooth superfine merino/superfine kid mohair blend yarn), for the accents. GAUGE Knit Gauge: 20 sts and 26 rows = 4" (10 cm) in St st and 22 sts and 31 rows = 4" over stitch patt with A and size 7 ndls Blocked Gauge: 21 sts and 27 rows = 4" (10 cm) over fabric stitch patt with A and size 7 ndls, 1 rep shaped cable = 2.75-3.75" W x 3.25" L over chart with 2 strands B and size 8 ndls, or size to give gauge. To save time, take time to check gauge. SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS To fit a 12" x 16" / 16" x 20" pillow form Pillow fabric is knit to, and will block to, a slightly smaller dimension than pillow form, for a non-baggy fit. Knit pillows, like socks, can tend to bag out with use.
