Kilim Pillow

Kilim Pillow knitting pattern

“Kilim Pillow” by Mary Ann Stephens, available as a $5 personal-use PDF through Ravelry or FREE through June 2018 with any $20 Dale clearance yarn order from

My new “Kilim Pillow” design, a 20″ square cushion to be knit in four shades of super quick, super bulky yarn, so you can have a new pillow tying all your favorite colors together in no time at all.  The chart comes both colorized and in greyscale.  There are also several options given for alternate colorways.  You can do this design in anything from just two different colors to five…or maybe more!  The pattern also gives explicit instructions, and photos, for inserting the optional zipper.

It’s a $5 personal-use PDF available through Ravelry…BUT…from now through the end of June 2018, it’s FREE (yup, free!!) with any Dale yarn purchase over $20 from my Kidsknits Dale Yarn Clearance sale.  I’ll email you your private PDF download link along with your order confirmation.

I knit the sample in Dale Hubro, which was recently discontinued (although I do still have a little of it in stock…on clearance!)  Here’s a note from the pattern regarding suitable substitutes:

Unfortunately, Hubro was recently discontinued. The suggested gauge on Hubro’s ball band was 10 stitches to 4” / 10cm.  You can substitute for Hubro with any other solid-colored, super bulky yarn that has a similar ball band gauge – anywhere from 9 to 10 stitches over 4” / 10cm would make sense. As we did with the sample, you’ll want to knit your pillow at a tighter-than-ball-band gauge (see below) to end up with a sturdy fabric. This link takes you to a search that shows currently available, solid-colored, super bulky yarns.
