Pebble Pop Knit Pillow (needle AND loom!)
Let’s go berry picking with the Pebble Pop Knit pillow! The raspberry stitch pops in this pillow design from my sponsor, Yarnspirations. The texture is so easy to do, also catches your eye, doesn’t it?
I decided to change it up on this pattern and instead of a square pillow I went for a rectangle shape and I LOVE it for a super big pop of color in Sunflower! The design is quite flexible since it is a flat panel that you make in the width of your pillow. Just double the length and stitch the sides. Add a pillow and seam the rest. It is a breeze to assemble and I’ll take you through it in the video.
I’ve got great news for you loom knitters out there! You can loom knit this pattern. Scroll all the way to the bottom of this post for the supplies, notes and loom knitting tutorial video.
