DIY Tutorial For A Chunky Knitted Round Pillow With Short Rows

05 05 2016

My knitted round pillow was shown in SisterMag20 last year and now finally here on my blog.

I love round deco elements like pillows and carpets very much because they can be such eye-catchers - especially if your interior is more minimalistic and modern.

The finished pillow has a diameter of 60cm and is made with short rows - meaning, that the rows are only partially worked before turning so the knitting starts to curve.

You will need:

Approximately 1kg super chunky wool needle size 20-25mm (for example Loopy Mango Big Loop available in my DaWanda Shop) 

- circular knitting needle in 70cm length which fits your yarn size

- another circular knitting needle preferable in the same size or a little bit bigger or smaller

- Inner cushion 60cm diameter

- scissors

- felting needle (optional)

You can find great tutorials for this crochet star on my DIY Pinterest Board. Its super easy and fast to make - perfect as an ornament or for decorating gifts.

I used white fabric yarn for mine.

For the brass wire star I used wire from the craftstore and my tutorial for the copper wire bowls. Just weave the wire flat and curl the endings with pliers.

Happy Day,

Anette
