Do you remember the blanket I started last year? This one:

pattern for knit cable afghan

Well, I loved it, but I made vital mistake – I ordered too little yarn. And I bet you can guess what happens if you order too little yarn… yep…. they don’t make it any more.

I played with the thought of continuing with some other color, but I don’t think I would use it. It’s not perfect and it would stand in my way…

So what to do with the strip of knitted garment? Pillows of course πŸ™‚ And I’m so happy how they turned out.

Knitted pillows

Here’s what I did.

  1. I prepared the garment by threading two strips of yarn through stitches (in case one of those try to slip away)

preparing knitted garment for cutting

2. Now I started to cut (yes, I had a face like I was doing a brain surgery – and I felt like it too)

3. Finally I crocheted cut edges and formed pillows

Done!

Now this was a day well spent πŸ™‚
