A Chunky Knit Merino Pillow Kit
Our Cozy Knitted Pillow Knitting Workshop was so well loved as was our Chunky Arm Knitting Workshop (where we explored an incredibly unique texture that is spun 19.5 micron Merino wool) that we decided to combine the best of both worlds! That’s right, we’ve created a pencil Merino wool suitable for knitting.
We went back to the drawing board and built up a chunky, over-sized knit pillow that’s just perfect for your cozy bed or couch. Knit this guy up with a simple seed stitch to be a square or lumbar style pillow, we’ve been knitting up a storm.
This chunky roving-style yarn (but spun so that it won’t aggressively fall apart on you as you work) is an ecru, neutral white and is so lovely to work with. AND SO COZY, it’s 100% 19.5 micron Merino wool.
To add additional artisan support to this materials kit, we’re pairing the yarn with size US50 (25mm) handmade wooden needles.
This materials kit includes:
- 1.5lb chunky ecru of bulk roving yarn, balled and ready to knit with (this easily makes a large 16×24″ lumbar pillow)
- a set of size 50 US wooden circular knitting needles
Please note we highly recommend having participated in our Cozy Knit Pillow Workshop with Alison to ensure you have the video instruction to knit and assemble this pillow. Our example share a simple seed stitch that knits up in a couple of hours.
