For an 8 colour pillow you will need eight x 1 CakeQuarter aka 8 x 25g/ 56m/ 61y of each colour.

For a 4 colour pillow you will need four x 2 CakeQuarters, aka 4 x 50g/ 113m/ 123y of each colour.

See WildWestDye's DK weight yarn here. Or choose yarn from your stash of course!

Skill level: Intermediate - you will need to know or learn kitchener, matress stitch and short rows. YouTube videos available. 

PDF format: Pattern is instant download, all patterns are final sale and non-refundable.

Finished measurements:

  • 43cm/ 17" in diameter

You will need:

  • Cushion/ pillow pad or fabric and polyfill to make your own - template included.
  • Needles: 4.5mm / US 7 
  • Darning needle if working the cowl flat, stitch marker if working the cowl in the round.

Needles: 4mm/ US size 6 - 16" circulars - it is possible to work the cowl flat on straight long needles but you will probably find it more comfortable to work on circulars. 

Gauge: 21 sts to 10cm/ 4" blocked - gauge is not critical, but will affect final finished size and yarn use. You could also make this using a worsted weight yarn.
