The banana split throw pillow is the absolute epitome of living à la mode! Three yummy scoops of ice cream, each topped with hot fudge, whipped cream, and a cherry, sit deliciously atop a perfect banana. You’ll get to practice working in the round for the components in this project before sewing them all together. There’s a lot of opportunity here to change up a variety of yarn colors and ice cream flavors, as well as your favorite sundae sauces, from hot fudge to caramel to strawberry!

15 sts x 18 rows in sc = 4” (10 cm).
