What can I do with this Chenille Thick 'n Quick stuff?
I bought 2 skeins of Chenille Thick 'n Quick from Hobby Lobby for a project, and then decided I didn't want to do that project after all.

What can I do with this stuff? I'd love any suggestions... I could make something for myself, my 2 year old, my DH, a relative, anyone... so you'd think I wouldn't have any trouble finding a project, but I am!

Down at the bottom of the page shows the possible projects with T&Q, but with 2 skeins (unless you buy more!) you're probably a bit limited as to size, maybe just a "lapghan"?

I'm making the Chain Fringe scarf on the lion brand site and I'm almost done with my second skien with just 2 inches to go. So without the fringe you could make that one.

And it is WARM!!!

You could just cast on for as wide as you want the pillow to be and knit a square for the front, or when it gets as long as it is wide, purl a row for a turn and knit an equal length for the other side if you want both sides to be the same.

I found the pattern and oops, you need a bit more than two skeins but you could always make a smaller pillow or buy another skein. Here goes:

Finished size: 16 x 16

Materials:

Lion Brand Chenille Thick-n-Quick - 3 skeins

Size 10 Knitting needles

16" pillow form - Gauge: 8 sts and 12 rows=4" in k2, p2 pattern

Pillow Top (Make 2)

Cast on 32 stitches.

Row 1 - k2, p2 8 times.
Row 2 - repeat row 1.
Row 3 - p2, k2 8 times.
Row 4 - repeat row 3.
Repeat Rows 1 through 4 until piece measures 16". BO loosely.

Sew together pieces leaving one edge open. Insert pillow form. Complete sewing of last open edge.

This is a very quick and simple pattern. Good luck

Chantal
