Blue Sky Fibers 13th Street Pillow (Free)
Blue Sky Fibers 13th Street Pillow is an adorable piece to practice both fair isle and steeking. The pillow front is knit in the traditional fair isle way, knit in the round with extra edge stitches. After knitting, the edge stitches are stabilized with sewing and then cut apart. Your pillow will be proof that you can do it, and not faint.
