Chunky Knit Pillow

2 Materials
40 Minutes
This chunky knit pillow is so easy to make.

A few weeks ago I showed you how to make a chunky knit blanket in 3 easy steps. I am absolutely in love with how it turned out so, I’ve decided to add a few more decor pieces to my home using the same chunky knit technique. This 3 part series will teach you how to #1 make a chunky knit blanket (or already has) , #2 a chunky knit throw pillow and #3 a chunky knit wreath! Yes a wreath! I’m super excited for the wreath! It’s very minimalist and stylish! Don't forget to check the wreath out .
I didn't take many photos during the process. I apologize I get so carried away with doing the video I forget to take photos. You can check out the video or visit my blog it makes way better sense on my blog.
I'll give you written steps just to show you how easy it is. This pillow only takes 4 steps to make.
Step 1
Step one is the beginning of all loops. To begin, you’re going to need to make a loop out of your yarn then keep pull out loop after loop and it should start looking like a braid.
Step 2
Once you have your braid at the length you want your blanket, you’ll need to take your yarn and lay it straight across the top going back the other direction from which you were braiding and keep pulling out loops. Keep going back and for in rows.
Step 3
Once you feel the size you have is good you’ll need to finish off the edges. To finish off the edges you’ll need to stick your fingers through two loops  and pull one loop out.  Keep doing this across the whole top of your blanket. That's it! (if you confused check out my chunky knit blanket video ) I promise it's easy. It's under 3 minutes long and you'll be knitting/crocheting in no time.
Here's a cute close up. I love this yarn it has a pretty sheen to it. :D
Here's a quick video to show you how to do the 4th and final step on finishing off the edges on your pillow. PS. Don't forget to watch part 1 (my chunky knit blanket video where I show you how to knit)
