Pyramid Lake is named after the mountain that rises above it and is a favoured spot in Jasper National Park for canoeing, camping, hiking and hanging out. It’s a place where nature meets nurture. The stranded colourwork design on this pillow amplifies the ripple effect of the mountain’s reflection in the lake below. The buttoned back is just as striking with an asymmetrical effect and a cozy, cardigan feel. The Pyramid Lake Pillow is ready for all your adventures, armchair or otherwise!

Pillow is worked in one piece beginning and ending at button closer on back. Piece is folded and seamed together.

This knitting pattern includes written directions, chart for stranded colourwork, and front and back images.*

Substitution Notes
Choose a heavy worsted weight yarn. Original is 100% wool that works up at 4.5 to 5 sts per inch (2.5 cm) on 4 to 5 mm (US 6-8) needles. Non-superwash wools will work the best, but acrylics, superwash and wool blends will also work.

Techniques
Working simple stranded colourwork from a chart, worked flat, seaming, buttonholes and sewing on buttons.
