Spring is here! so I want to make new things to decorate.
Haven’t made a decor pillow in a while. With all these beautiful spring colors this year I had to make one!
Chunky yarn: Had this one at hand and I’m in love with the color. I needed 4 balls
Knitting needles: If you have been following me already, you know I love to knit everything with circular needles. Straight needles are good too. The right size will be in the yarn label but usually is a size 13 or 15.
Filling pillow or Poly-fil. I already had a filling pillow from another decor pillow, so it was easy to just do the switch.
K1: Knit 1
P1: Purl 1
Cast on 40 sts
K1, P1 all stitches until the end of the row
P1, K1 sll stitches (purl above the previous knit stitch and knit above the previous purl stitch. This is also called the seed stitch)
Work until the piece is the same size of the filling pillow. If using Poly-fil, make it the desired size. Make two pieces
cast off “in pattern” and leave a very long tail for sewing. sew the pieces together leaving an opening for filling
Fill the pillow and sew in the last part and enjoy your new pillow!
As always, see the video below for a visual step by step. Remember to pause when needed and go at your own pace.
