Throw Pillow – Slip-Stitch – “Vinété” – Bulky Weight
This throw pillow is based (with permission) on the Aubergine Dreams Neck Warmer by Laura Dianiska.
With my modifications, the pattern is suitable for practicing many important beginner skills.
The pattern of elongated stitches rising vertically up the work is caused slipped stitches.
A good beginner pattern for those just learning how to slip stitches.
