Knit up an easy Pillow in Hurdle Stitch Pattern. Pillows give your home decor an instant pop of color, both indoors and out! My recent Hurdle Knit Stitch pattern became instantly popular with you all, so I thought it would be fun to design a project using this simple texture, too. We are getting ready for an outdoor party and it’s been fun knitting up something new for the festivities in the yard!

I’m knitting up my pillows in Bernat Maker Outdoor Yarn, but please feel free to use any bulky #5 yarn of your choice. My written patterns include knitting instructions to create a 14-inch square pillow, as well as a larger 20-inch square size. I’m also adding the specific stripe patterns I chose for each pillow design. Of course, this is your unique design, so please feel free to knit your pillows up in any fiber, colors, and stripe patterns you desire.

This free knitting pattern also includes my fun video tutorial that gives you an overview of everything you need to know, so make sure to check it out! This knitting pattern is an easy level project, perfect for everyone who has completed my Absolute Beginner Knitting Series.
