This pillow features a fun and unique colorwork design on the front, of a bicycle. It offers the perfect challenge for knitters who are new to colorwork, and is also interesting enough to hold the attention of experienced knitters.

A fabric back is sewn to the knitted front, and a zipper is put in the bottom, to make it easy to remove the pillow form.

This is an enjoyable knit, and is very unique in the design and construction. Both the knitter and the recipient of the pillow will find great enjoyment in it!

Because of the provisional cast-on construction, this pillow is easily adapted to a 16” x 16” pillow by simply making the borders longer.

Gauge is 21 sts = 4 in. worked in stockinette stitch on 4 mm needles.
