Knittique's Entrelac Pillow pattern includes instructions for 2 sizes: 18" square (shown here in Scraplet Skeins™ colorway Be My Valentine) and 14" square (shown in Scraplet Skeins™ colorway Fade to Black). The 2 overlapping back panels are knitted diagonally in garter stitch, and the pillow is assembled with a single-crochet edging.

Bonus: The pattern also contains full instructions for the entrelac technique, including a schematic.

PLEASE NOTE: You are purchasing this pattern in PDF format, which requires Adobe Reader or another PDF reader. A link to download your pattern will be e-mailed to you when your purchase is complete.

You need to know how to: Cast on, knit stitch, purl stitch, increase (knit into front and back of stitch), decrease (knit/purl 2 together, slip slip knit), pick up stitches, bind off, single crochet (trim only).

Materials: The larger size, as shown here in Be My Valentine, was made with 3 180-yd. Scraplet Skeins™ (this skein size is now discontinued), plus about 350 yards of coordinating heavy worsted-weight yarn for the back panels. The smaller pillow requires a total of about 350 yards: 1 120-yd. Scraplet Skein for the entrelac top, and the rest in coordinating yarn for the pillow backs.

The smaller (14") size uses pretty much every bit of 2 Scraplet Skeins™ (120 yds. each); I had about 15 yds. left after working the crochet edging.

Needles: Both sizes are made on a U.S. 9 needle. (13-14" straight needles are recommended, at least for the entrelac part.)

Yarn substitution tip: If you'd rather use something besides Scraplet Skeins™, self-striping yarns are a perfect choice; the gauge called for works with yarns such as Noro's "Kureyon" and "Silk Garden", or other yarns that work up fairly tightly on a U.S. 9 needle.
