Materials
:: 174 yards (160m) x 4 strands of Super Bulky yarn at 1.75-2.25 sts per inch traditional gauge (696 yards/640m total)
:: 20x 54” body pillow
:: 41“ x 90” fleece or flannel fabric in the same color as the yarn
:: needle and thread in coordinating color
:: sewing machine (optional)

Yarn Used

8 skeins of Wool & The Gang Crazy Sexy Wool in Pink Lemonade, (80M/87yds, 200g, 2sts to 1”/2.5cm) - OR- 6 skeins Cascade Magnum, 123 yards each, 100% wool (split last two skeins in half)

Notes on yarn:
You will hold the yarn four strands at a time with this project unless you have much bulkier yarn. For less expensive yarn, replace this with a super-bulky wool that gets approximately 2 stitches to the inch in traditional knitting from your craft or local yarn store. Specialty yarns like Loopy Mango Big Stitch or LoveFest Fibers ReLove Merino would work well using 1-2 strands. Or, less expensive jumbo yarns like Loops & Threads Indie Pop.
