Anyone have a Quillow pattern?
I want to make a quillow, which is a blanket that folds up into a pillow. I'm using a pattern from First Knits for a button pillow, but got inspired to make it into a quillow instead. I just was curious how I could put it together in the end.

I found this site which shows a quilt made quillow and how to fold it up. This could work well as a knit item, don't you think?

I haven't found a pattern online for this, so hey maybe this will be my first pattern I've created on my own!

What a fun idea! I've sewed a couple of quillows -- one quilted, and one of fleece. I would think that you could either knit the blanket portion and the pillow portion, and then sew the pillow in place (same idea as doing a fleece quillow) OR you could knit the blanket, and on the last row, bind off one side, place center stitches (for pillow) on a holder, bind off the rest of the stitches, and then knit the pillow portion. When pillow is shaped, you would just fold it down and stitch the sides. You can figure the proportions from the free sewing quillow directions -- I'm sure I have some stashed at home if you can't find one. I think about.com has a few. Have fun!

(start the pillow stitching where the solid line is and stitch to desired length)

One of those look awesome!!! That would be a neat project!!

Maybe you could crochet granny squares, sew them together, and then do intarsia knitting for the pillow part and there you have it!!!

:rofling: Genious...

I would love to sew one of them though... It'd be fun!

I've never made one but there's one in the new issue of knit.1 magazine. It's really cute and Vicki Howell is the designer. The issue will be on newsstands on Feb. 14th.
