When you picture your happy place, what does it look like? A tropical paradise? The bustling streets of Paris? The sparkling blue waters of Lake Michigan? I think the happiest place I could imagine is tucked into my home on a crisp September evening, on the couch with my husband and my daughter….and my cat, Sal. We’ve started a fire in the wood stove and there’s a hot cup of tea within reach. We’ve got an oversized blanket draped over all three of us…and of course, there’s a new project on my lap! This trio of pillows would be a perfect addition to that cozy scene. Chunky, cabled and quick-to-knit, we suggest the unique palette of Quince & Co. Puffin, a superbulky singles yarn that is both rustic and modern, and would make a statement in any living room, regardless of decor. On one side, there are three puffy cables and on the other, three handsome wooden buttons to secure the envelope-style closure. The pattern includes instructions for both pillows--one that’s 12” x 16” and the other that’s 16” x 16”.
