You'll need 4 brightly colored, feltable yarns. I used 1 skein each of Brown Sheep Company, Lambs Pride Bulky in Pink(color A), Orange(color D), and Limeade(Color C). Then 2 skeins of Lemon Drop(Color B).
US size 13 needles.
Any washable filling to stuff the pillow with.
Sides (Make one in colors A, B, C, D)
CO 50 sts.
Work Garter stitch for 8"
Ends (make one each in colors B and C)
CO 25 sts
Work in garter stitch for 8"
Using color D, whipstitch all sides together in any color combination you like. You want the seams to SHOW!
Sew ends onto body of pillow, leaving about a 4" opening on one piece. Stuff the heck out of pillow, then sew it shut.
Felt away! Throw it in the wash, take it into a hot bath, whatever your want to do to felt this sucker!
It can be a little fuzzy, so be ready with a sweater shaver to clean it up a bit.
