Knitted Velvet Pillow Pattern in Seed Stitch

Knitted Velvet Pillow Pattern in Seed Stitch

This Knitted Velvet Pillow is so soft and fun to make. I’m happy to share the Bernat Stitch Along knitting pattern and video tutorial with you. We begin by knitting up the Front Panel in the new silky soft Bernat Velvet yarn. Next, we add two overlapping Back Panels, then finish up by seaming our edges together and adding fun Tassels.

I hope you join me and create this pretty pillow in the classic Seed Stitch texture, along with the blanket and basket, during the 6-week KAL.
