The Parkway Pillow
“The Parkway Pillow” is simple and easy!
This is a quick knitting project with super bulky weight yarn!
This pillow knits up so fast you’ll want to make more than one…one for yourself and another for a thoughtful gift.
Knit this pillow to give as a special gift for many occasions…a birthday, Mother’s Day, Christmas or a wedding. Choose a neutral colored yarn and it will go with many decor styles.

SKILL LEVEL: Easy
A great pattern for any level of knitter…from confident beginner to advanced.
You will need to know how to cast on stitches, knit and purl confidently, bind off stitches, sew up simple seams and weave in ends.
August 2014 Update: The Parkway Pillow pattern has been updated to include more detailed finishing instructions with 12 close-up tutorial photos. Pattern includes specific instructions for how to sew up beautiful seams.
This pattern is written in standard U.S. knitting terms.
I used Lion Brand Wool-Ease Thick & Quick in the color ‘Glacier’ for the blue pillow shown in photos.
I used Loops & Threads “Cozy Wool” in the color ‘Fleece’ for the white pillow shown in the photos. The pattern will work with many super bulky yarns.
I used a standard (inexpensive!) 16” x 16” pillow form. The finished pillow is slightly larger with the knitted cover.
If you have any questions while using the pattern, I am happy to help. I want you to be successful! My contact info is in the pattern.
