When I read, I like to have a throw pillow. To lay on, to hug, or to mangle if the story becomes intense. Hence the sailorly stripes and stormy blue of this square cushion. It’s worked with bulky yarn on large needles, so you can get back to your book more quickly!

You can seam the panels so that the stripes line up, so that the stripes stagger, or you can turn one horizontally and one vertically. You could also make the front and back panels different colors for a reversible pillow, as each panel takes almost an entire hank.
