Cozy and stylish, every home needs one (or both!) of these statement pillows. Perfect for your cozy cottage, a friend who just moved, or a newlywed couple setting up a home. The unique cabled letters spell out “home” and “love”… and in cursive!

These pillows are knit flat with a slipped stitch edge throughout to make seaming easier. At the end, work a German Short Row shaped button tab with an I-cord BO. (Instructions in pattern.) The pattern includes both charted and written instructions. This fun knit goes pretty fast, but it will keep you on your toes.

Techniques used: Knit, purl, I-cord BO, increasing, decreasing, cabling, German Short Rows (instructions in pattern).
