Knit Half Square Triangle Pillow - two sessions

gather here Classes

We love quilty motifs in knitting and the Stella Quilt Cushion by Laura Penrose takes traditional half square triangles to create a lovely knit pillow cover. The pattern itself is stellar - with coloring sheets so you can plan out your cover, video tutorials for when you get stuck or need clarification, and a variety of techniques to help you succeed in creating and joining these blocks. If you are interested in learning German short rows, this is also a great project for doing just that! You will need to knit between sessions.
