Item details

+++ This is a downloadable PDF pattern, not a finished pillow! +++

Make this patterned pillow in your chosen yarn and colors. Fits a 14"x14" (35.5x35.5cm) pillow form (or you're always welcome to scale your gauge up or down for a different size square pillow).

This pillow is knit flat for the plain portions and in the round for the stranded portion. Since it involves steeking and stranded colorwork, some familiarity with both is recommended. Other intermediate/advanced aspects of the pattern are a provisional cast-on, hem, and buttonholes.

No brand of yarn is specified, but wool is highly recommended since there’s a steek.

The chart is written for use with 7 different colors and a background color--since small amounts are needed, it’s a great way to use up leftover yarn. A self-striping yarn could also be used, which would lessen the number of yarn changes. There are two versions of the chart--one with the colors pictured, and one with each color assigned a number so you can completely change the color scheme without confusion. And if you’re not a fan of colorwork, you can knit the whole thing flat (omitting the steek stitches) and follow the chart for a monochromatic textured design using knit and purl stitches.

Yardage is approximately 731 yards (668 m).

Gauge: 23 stitches and 33 rows = 4 inches with a size 3 needle.

Returns & exchanges

Because all items are vintage and/or handmade, there may be some irregularities. I will always try to be accurate in my descriptions and photos, describing the condition of vintage items. I also take any age-related wear into consideration when pricing items. Because of the cost involved in shipping heavier items, I can't refund or exchange some items. However, if you find that something you have received is significantly different than what you understood from the description, please contact me so we can arrange for an exchange or refund.
