Easy Chunky Pillow Knitting Pattern

This easy chunky pillow knitting pattern is a written pattern for a fast knit project:  a trendy, easy, chunky knit pillow can be something you’d like to make for yourself. Or for a friend, for XMAS, birthday, housewarming… etc.



Knit pillows are trendy too. As a minimum, a bold chunky knit pillow like this will give your sofa a new look. If you have a leather sofa, it also brings some softness to leather. Beautiful little touches, like the oversized wooden buttons, add luxury.


Great Gift

Like the idea of Christmas knitting? Then perhaps you’d like to brighten your friend’s home with this cosy hand knit pillow.



Are you new to knitting? You’ve come to the right pattern: this Easy Chunky Pillow Knitting Pattern makes for a beginners knitting project. I’ve written up the instructions in plain English.


Yarn Choices

DK / 8 ply (11 wpi) , or yarn with a gauge of 6 st x 15 rows being 4×4 inches (10×10 cm). US 11 – 8.0 mm.
Of course, you can use any kind of yarn you like – just adjust the number of stitches and rows.
In fact, this is a superb way to use up left-over yarn, and/or to make a pillow with a range of colors that pull together all the colors in the room.  Just stripe them through the pattern.


18×18″ or 45×45 cm.
But it is easy to adjust the pattern to any size of pillow you desire.  You can even transform this  pattern to be for a rectangular lumbar pillow instead.  Variations like this might entertain the advanced knitter, …rather than the novice knitter.  I recommend the latter to make the pattern as-is first.
