“Home”…such a simple, short word that means so much.

Whether you have moved a lot or stayed in the same place for years and years, hopefully home is a special place for you.

The Home Pillow is knit with super bulky weight yarn and big needles so it knits up very quickly.

SKILL LEVEL: Intermediate

You will need to know how to cast on stitches, knit and purl confidently, read a color knitting chart for the word design, knit with two colors using the intarsia technique, bind off stitches, sew up simple seams and weave in ends.

This is a two-color knitting pattern using the intarsia technique.

Experience with intarsia knitting highly recommended!

Instructions for intarsia knitting are NOT included in the pattern.

Detailed, step-by-step finishing instructions with close-up photos included in the pattern.

This pattern is written in standard U.S. knitting terms.

MATERIALS NEEDED:

US Size 13 needles (or size to obtain gauge).
170 yards of Super Bulky weight yarn for main background color.
30 yards of Super Bulky weight yarn for “home” design.
12” x 16” pillow form

I used Loops & Threads “Cozy Wool” super bulky yarn in the colors ‘Mushroom’ (light tan) and ‘Fleece’ (soft white). This is a nice, economically priced yarn. I used a basic, inexpensive pillow form.
