I have to say I LOVED knitting this pillow.:woohoo: I knit it in sections then joined them all together. Its 20 inches long and 9 inches wide. I put it right on my beautiful iron bed.

That's beautiful! :inlove:

Did you work from a pattern or just figured this out on your own?
If it's the latter, would you consider writing it up?

Excellent work on it! It's beautiful!

Here is the pillow pattern. I bought the book just for this pattern then weeks later someone posted it was FREE online. The directions are a lot easier to read in the book. As I said, I knit mine in sections then joined them all together. It was much easier for me to do it that way.


I bought the pillow form at Joanns with a coupon so that worked out nicely for me. Enjoy!!:cheering:

Quilt Lady!

That is so pretty! I would be afraid to use it and get it messed it up!

Ooh, it's so pretty! Very elegant work, great job :)

You have done a wonderful job on that. I keep eying up that pattern in my book, I must have go at some point.

Was it easy to make up? The stitches look o.k but I always worry when it comes to the sewing part.

I have made another item from that book, but can't show it until my swapper gets her parcel.

Fabulous!!! Looks like something you'd find in a designer catalog.

That's beautiful! :cheering:

Thank you all for your sweet compliments.

I think the pillow was EASY to do ONLY because I did it in sections. If I had to do it as one long piece like they suggested I would have been miserable.:noway: I would have not been able to keep as good track of which stitch I was doing etc.

I enjoyed stitching the sections together. I really like doing that in sweaters too. Plus by working on each section alone I got to "know' the pattern pretty well on each section....which makes for LESS errors for me!!:happydance:

I printed this pattern and I'm going to attempt to knit this, because I just love the pattern so much. I have not gotten the yarn yet, but plan to go get some later this week. I was reading through the entire pattern so I know for sure that I know how to do all of it. I just have one question for you if you don't mind. I am confused how you do the knit stitch following a yf. For example:

with B k2tog, yf, k1

If the yarn is in the front of your work, how do you do a knit stitch? -Ve

Hi Veronikaj

I think in this instance yf means yarn around the needle .

Knit 2tog wrap yarn round needle then k1

Hope this helps

Thanks Rita for the info. I will try that. So, pretty much a yarn over (yo)? I thought it was a fancy way of saying to do a purl. :) -Ve
