How to make a textured knit pillow

Step 1: Cast on 25 stitches using whatever method you prefer.

 

Step 2: Begin knitting by alternating knit and purl stitches. Knit 1, purl one, knit 1…. etc, repeating this pattern until you reach the end of the row. Turn and knit 1, purl 1, knit 1 until the end of this row. Repeat this pattern for 35 rows in total or until you reach the desired size.  Cast off all stitches in pattern. Make 2.

Step 3: With a yarn needle and some yarn, sew 3 sides of the pillow together. Stuff the pillow with the polyester fiberfill and sew the end closed.

Tips : Use a different yarn in a similar or contrasting colour to sew the side seams.
