I am so excited to share this new arm knit pillow pattern, Lazy Days, with you. I don’t think it could have a better name! Lazy Days and lots of lounging will certainly be plentiful with this pillow in your home. You can find the pattern in this month’s issue of Mollie Makes, Issue 65.
My children fell in love with it immediately, declaring it was clearly the best thing I had ever made! I might just agree with them. Let’s just say there is some fighting and wrestling over whose room this pink arm knit pillow gets to live in.
One of my favorite features of the design are the decorative seams on either end of the pillow. The arm knit pillow pattern twists so that one end seam is vertical and the other end is horizontal, adding to the delicious shape of the piece! The seam up the middle is an invisible mattress stitch. It all just feels so chunky and luscious!
I also love the cover of this issue of the Mollie Makes. The whole magazine is chock full of beautiful springy loveliness, and so much pink! You can subscribe here or download the ipad version of the mag here.
The pillow is made with four strands of Wool & the Gang, Crazy Sexy Wool. The yarn is super soft and makes you want to dive into a pile of it. The wool has a tiny bit of a twist to it which I like. If you find this a bit pricey, you could also substitute some less expensive craft store yarn, if this is more in your price range.
Go get the latest issue of Mollie Makes Magazine and give this pillow a whirl! I hope you make it and the pillow gives you a healthy dose of long, Lazy Days.
