Stripe Knit Euro Pillows

I’ve been knitting away on matching stripe euro pillows for our bed. If you remember I was originally going to make a stripe afghan in garter stitch. I decided it was too boring and switched to euro pillows. I love the way the garter stitch looks in stripes. I’m planning to make the pillow in one piece with an envelope back and stitch up the sides.

The natural color of the wool is stunning paired together. I have enough yarn to make the pillows, maybe a hat, and fingerless gloves too. It will be my own special collection of accessories! Below me playing around with all the different possibilities.

  2. Okay, stupid question but…how do you knit the two colors? Do you clip the end after each row and weave? In the photo, it appears that you simply save each ball until you get to the next end.

    Sorry no pattern. I’m making it up as I go. But once I’m done and if it looks like I share the pattern that I figured out.

    Good luck knitting!
