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)

So trendy with its oversized design and it looks equally cool paired with jeans or dressed up.

Always an absolut eye-catcher...and oh so cosy and soft!!

I made the sleeves less wide than indicated in the instructions because i liked that better.

You can easily change the pattern a bit around to make it perfectly for you...
