Valley Yarns 585 Viola Plaid Pillow
The Valley Yarns Viola Plaid Pillow features the rich, vibrant colors of Southwick while taking advantage of its cool, silky, cotton and bamboo fiber content. It’s an accent pillow that’s just perfect for napping. The plaid effect is achieved with stripes and simple surface crochet, while just a dash of duplicate stitch creates optional yellow accents. Knit in Valley Yarns Southwick, a combination of the softness of Pima cotton with the beauty and drape of bamboo fiber.
