This minimalistic block pillow fits in a modern interior.

Easy and fun to make!

The pattern is explained in detail and the different techniques (simple) are illustrated with clear sketches.

We made the pillow with Hosuband Lopi from Istèx (the famous Icelandic wool). This is a strong yarn which does not pill at all and keeps great shape.

The pillow measures 50 x 50 cm, for which you would need 4 skeins of Hosuband. We have knitted the pillow on needles 4mm (UK 8, US 6) as we prefer tight knits for pillows.

This pillow became an eyecatcher in our interior, we hope it will become one in yours!

We can’t wait to see the result!
