DIY Tutorial For A Chunky Knitted Round Pillow With Short Rows

05 05 2016 DIY

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)

DIY: Scarf And Beanie Knit Kit

20 11 2015

I currently offer two knit kits which are great for beginners but also fun if you are already a bit more advanced in knitting.

The yarn is super cool and oh so cozy! Both make great gifts - as a kit or ready made...

The beanie kit contains 1 skein à 150gr/5,3oz Loopy Mango Merino No.5 yarn (100% Merino, 74yards/68m) from New York, a size 15/10mm birchwood circular knitting needle, instructions and a cute drawstring bag with Loopy Mango print.

The finished beanie measures approximately 10"/25cm x 12"/30cm.

You will need about 1-2 hours to finish this project. The beanie is also available ready made.

The scarf kit contains 3 skeins à 150gr/5,3oz Loopy Mango Merino No.5 yarn (100% Merino, 74yards/68m) from New York, a size 19/15mm birchwood circular knitting needle, instructions and a cute drawstring bag with Loopy Mango print.

The finished scarf measures approximately 9"/23cm in width and 80"/203cm in length.

You can also easily change the pattern a bit and make the scarf wider and shorter if you like.

To finish the knitted scarf you will need about 3-5 hours. It is also available ready made.

Immediately available colors are: Iceberg grey, Polar Bear off white, Mrs. Orange and Café Con Leche. With longer shipping time also Yellow, Green, Red and Pink.

Both knit kits are available here in my DaWanda shop.
