Good news! I have a new DIY finger knitting trimmed pillow tutorial for you, plus a new partnership with KOEL Magazine to tell you all about. KOEL Magazine is the brain child of the beautifully stylish design blog BloesemDesign.com, so that means it’s bound to be gorgeous!
KOEL Magazine celebrates crafting with yarn to create a stylish home. I am honored that they have chosen me to share modern, fiber interior projects on their blog once a month in a column called Knit A Therapy. My finger knitting trimmed pillow is the column’s first entry! So exciting!
I did a version of the pillow in a traditional worsted weight yarn and one in t-shirt yarn. You can pretty much use whatever yarn scraps you have available, as the project takes only 30 yards of yarn or so. A home project that is beautiful and a good use for leftover yarn makes these pillows a sure-fire winner!
If you don’t know how to finger knit, never fear. Learning how to finger knitting is a snap. As a result, this pillow makes be a great first knitting project. Make it with your children or just because you want to create something stunning and different for your home!
KOEL magazine is all about curating a contemporary interior decor with yarn. The magazine brings back the coolness to decorative crochet, knitting, macramé, latch hooking, needlework, and weaving. And, they are adding finger knitting, too. If you know about my book, you know I can seriously get on board with this idea.
Curated by Irene Hoofs, KOEL sounds like a super exciting magazine, especially for fiber lovers like you and me. Irene founded BloesemDesign.com in 2006, which evolved into Studio Bloesem, a new media creative studio. Since inception Bloesem consistently ranks among the most influential international design blogs. Finally, they are bringing that design expertise to the yarn world.
Look forward to lots more yarn-y goodness. I know I am!
