I'm working on a pillow. The pattern is from Knit It! This is really my first project that is NOT a scarf and is something a little more involved that the basic garter stitch pattern! That hole on the left IS a button hole, not a mistake! :D (There will be five buttons on each side of the pillow.)
Thanks! ;-) It's Lion Brand Jiffy - "Quick and Easy Mohair Look Yarn." It's 100% acrylic but totally machine washable and dryable, which I thought would be nice for family room pillows. (Kids, ya know?!)
Kristin, I'm not sure how this is going to work out in the end. I'm going to attach a photo that is a similar pillow. It's NOT the one I'm stitching, but it seems to be basically the same idea.
Although now that I look at it...that's not a bad project for me! LOL
Edited to give directions: I make 5 of the button holes in about 11 inches of fabric. Then I knit until the piece measures 24 inches and bind off. I block the pieces. Then I fold lengthwise with wrong sides together and with buttonhole band on top. I place my buttons correctly and then sew lengthwise. Button one side of pillow and insert pillow form. Button the other side of the pillow and TADA - finished pillow.
That's really pretty! I was thinking of making one that was like an envelope with buttons. Not sure if they would be comfy, though I guess you could use the other side. I like yours alot! The colors are beautiful!
