A fun college-ready accessory that will remind your student just how much you love them! Knit in a lovely worsted-weight acrylic that’s washable, this pillow uses a 12-inch pillow form and knits up quickly on US #7s. Knit in the round all in one piece, this is a GREAT colorwork project.

• 70 yards each of three school colors – sample used Lion Brand’s Heartland (142g, 251yds, 100% acrylic) in “Grand Canyon”, “King’s Canyon”, and “Bryce Canyon“. NOTE: this design will allow you to make approximately three pillows with the three skeins of yarn.

• One dpn, US #7 or smaller to work the 3-nbo
• 2 stitch markers to mark side edges
