Bolster Pillow - Inspiration

Bolster Pillow

Through the Eyes of a Machine Knitter

Small round bolster pillows can add interest to your home decor. Covered in knitting they can be the perfect touch (especially for a knitter's home)!
Consider the shape of this striped pillow: It's a tube enclosed by 2 circles.
You have choices for a tailored, custom fit pillow cover:
  • Knit separate circles and attach them to the tubular body
  • Knit the body horizontally or vertically depending on your yarn and stitch pattern
  • Knit the body and the circle-shaped ends at the same time

This Knitweave "butterfly" version is knit in one piece with the shaping worked on the ends with short rows.
