Inspired by the classic video game, this Tetris throw and pillow are comprised of tetrominos (a shape formed by four connected squares) in the tradional colors. The throw contains two of each tetromino, arranged so that whether it is turned up or down, no piece could fall, and no row would be complete. The pillow has one of each tetromino, arranged so that no matter which way the pillow is turned, no piece could fall, and no row would be complete.

Materials
worsted-weight yarn:
-cyan (pillow- 32 yds; throw- 240 yds)
-blue (pillow- 32 yds; throw- 240 yds)
-orange (pillow- 32 yds; throw- 240 yds)
-yellow (pillow- 32 yds; throw- 240 yds)
-green (pillow- 32 yds; throw- 240 yds)
-purple (pillow- 32 yds; throw- 240 yds)
-red (pillow- 32 yds; throw- 240 yds)
-black(pillow- 334 yds; throw- 420 yds)
-additional black for seaming

I recommend Caron Simply Soft or Red Heart Soft yarn for their softness, washability, and no dye lot, in case you need more yarn or want to save the scraps for another Tetris in the future!

Gauge:
Small squares measure 3” x 3” and use about 8 yds each.
Larger squares measure 6” x 6” and use about 30 yds each.
