Good day to all!

I have just posted a free pillow pattern on my relatively new blog Prisknits.blogspot.com, and invite you to take a look at it. But I am also posting the pattern here along with a photo. If you like it and would like more details, take a look at the blog with a different (and probably better pic). Please leave your comments and let me know what you think about all things that are knit!

The pattern is based on ruching which is a relatively simple series of increases and decreases.


Work 10 rows of stockinette starting with a knit row.
1st row of ruching, increase into every stitch.
Increase by knitting each stitch in the usual way but donít drop the loop off the needle. Then move the yarn from the back to the front and purl the stitch. Slip the old stitch off the left needle and move the yarn to the back again.
Work 9 rows of stockinette starting with a purl row.
The next row, K2tog to the end.
Work 9 rows of stockinette starting with a purl row.
Finish with stockinette for 10 rows.
Work these 20 rows however many times you need to achieve the size pillow you want.

Grateful for the pattern but since I am a newbie, confused by the instructions:

Increase by knitting each stitch in the usual way but don’t drop the loop off the needle. Then move the yarn from the back to the front and purl the stitch. Slip the old stitch off the left needle and move the yarn to the back again.


Thanks!!

All this means is that you knit a stitch on the needle just as you normally would, and then move the working yarn to the front and purl it, then you are done with that stitch. In effect, you are knitting the stitch first, then purling it--that's it. Just pick up a pair of needles and do it--sounds harder than it is!

The pillow is lovely and something different to think about knitting. I plan on it and will save your pattern.
the embroidery of the mouse, you did lovely work there also. did you design the pattern also....I would frame up mousey and hang it up proudly. Urs.

Ursula, thanks so much! I am not a sweater knitter, but I do love projects for the home. Please come back and check out my blog. I plan on offering the patterns for the other two pillows as well. It's funny that you said I should frame the Xmas Mouse because I went out a couple of days to do just that and forgot to bring him along-duh! I will eventually get him one though.
