The other day, I was looking at all the beautiful handknit cabled pillows for sale on home decorating sites and yearning to have some in MY living room. I started out bemoaning the fact that we haven’t really concentrated on home decor at Berroco, when it struck me – it would be easy to make pillows from a lot of our sweater patterns! Our size small sweaters are often 18″ across and it’s easy to find a down or foam insert that size.
These cabled sweaters would make great pillows. I am thinking of oatmeal or off white . I like the idea of leaving the ribbing on the bottom edge and adding it to the top edge as well.
Toria’s big camp blanket–like pattern would make a cool addition to a lake house.
And for a splash of girly charm, take a look at Aneto. The chunkiness of the yarn makes it as appropriate for a bold modern setting as it would be a more victorian room.
Does this sound like a crazy scheme to you or a good way to play with a pattern and not have to worry about how it’s going to fit?
