Dandelion seeds drift across this pair of pillows! Each pillow is worked flat and then joined at the top and bottom, then seams with I-cord. The buttons up the back keep each cover in place over the pillow form.

The Dandelion motif can be worked in a combination of stranded and Intarsia knitting, where the CC is wrapped around the MC every row at the edges of the design, but is stranded with the MC over the more detailed portions. The Seeds motifs can be worked in Intarsia or duplicate stitched on afterwards.
