Pattern Description from Interweave Online Store: “My new house came void of color, so I decided to create some. I bought linen fabric for cushions and thought for months about knitting two-layered linen pillows. As the magazine deadline got closer, I thought about sewing the inner pillow of the linen fabric (which you can certainly do) and knitting only the outer layer. But I went ahead and knit the inner pillow as well. I hadn’t intended to knit lace fronts, but I got sucked into the lace craze and … well, you see the results. Create your own bright look for spring.”
