I love curling up on the couch in the winter, watching some Netflix (ok, a lot of Netflix) and doing a bit of knitting. I haven’t had a lot of time for it this winter, but a knitting blog binge over the holiday break got me back in the mood. I’ve recently been coveting a pair of knitted pillows for our couch because I love the cozy look they give to a livingroom. Just look at how good they look in these spaces!
I love the colors of the pillows on this couch. Plus, how cute is that penguin pillow!?
I like the idea of a knit body pillow. It sounds extra cuddly! This picture also makes me want to make a pallet couch.
After seeing this I want to make some extra large pillows, along with some flat poofs.
Our couch does have a pair of pillows already, though I have some issues with them. Scott’s lovely mother made them out of some of his old Wisconsin t-shirts, and as much as I love a good clothing recycle, my Gopher pride makes them a bit tough to look at every day. I’m planning on recovering them with a cable knit, maybe with a zipper or a button on them so I can take the cover off again if we ever want to. These are my inspiration patterns:
Since I don’t have any extra thick yarn in my stash I decided to get the chunky vibe with cables. I love cable knitting because it is so gratifying to see the pattern take shape after a couple rows. But I forgot how much more time and concentration these patterns require! So maybe I’ll have these pillows done by July?
What have you been knitting lately?
