This pillow is knit in the round, and measures about 12 by 13 inches. Instructions for pom-poms are included!

The red and blue version shown is knitted in knitpicks palette, which has a larger gauge than alchemy juniper and makes a little larger pillow.

the chart is NOT perfectly symmetrical… this makes it a smidge harder to knit- you have to pay attention… but it gives it a certain feeling of perspective.. or dimension, and enhances visual appeal
