These pillows will accompany you to your favorite chair for a little respite from your worries and cares. They are woven in alternating blocks of wool and tape yarn. When washed, the wool yarn shrinks more than the tape causing the fabric to pucker. Shown here in two different colorways; the instructions are for one pillow. Also included in the pattern are tips for sampling that are particularly useful if you want to use different yarns from those recommended in the pattern.
