Patons Shetland Chunky Pillow

Looking for the perfect pillow to go with any couch or chair? Here it is: Patons Shetland Chunky Pillow. Not only is the texture warm and inviting, but the colors and pattern will please even the most discerning interior design expert.

Tip: Before starting project, pick five colors of Bernat Shetland Chunky and/or other 100 g/3.5 oz. chunky yarn. Assign each color a letter from A to E. Use these letters to correspond with the A, B, C, D and E in this project.

Use a gauge of 16 sts and 21 rows (4") to knit a pillow that measures approximately 16" square. Be sure to check your gauge. If it takes you fewer stitches to match the gauge, try using a smaller size needle; if it takes you more stitches, try a larger size needle.
