A Chunky Throw Pillow - a Fabulous Finger-Knitting Project

Finger-knitting has done grown up, as I like to say. My latest finger-knitting project DIY is featured on Design*Sponge today. I have always thought finger-knitting quite beautiful. How sad that it is typically relegated to the world of “children’s” craft. Not that it isn’t a great craft for young children (to learn how, click here), but this pillow is here to step out and say, consider me. I think it is modern and updated and a perfect way to achieve that chunky knit look without actually knitting!

Allie and I had so much fun making this pillow together. She made the string of green, I made the white. We are currently in discussion over where the pillow is going to live. I love it on my studio chair, don’t you? The pillow is made of two skeins of Lion Brand Wool-Ease Thick and Quick and check out Design*Sponge for an easy tutorial to make it. Isn’t the texture wonderful?

I am actually off to Miami today for a long weekend with my girlfriends. I am all giggly with excitement. At least I’ve left something cozy behind me.
