Garter Block Four Patch Pillow Cover Using Berroco Ultra Alpaca Chunky

Garter Block Four Patch Pillow Cover Using Berroco Ultra Alpaca Chunky

"Big, bold blocks."

Modern, retro, romantic, eclectic—whatever style you prefer, this Garter Blocks pillow cover will fit right in. Simply knit in strips of garter stitch (with a little seaming later), it’s a relaxing, satisfying, and perfectly portable project. It’ll be finished and resting on your sofa—or bed, or chair, or floor—before you know it!

We found Berroco Ultra Alpaca Chunky to be the perfect mix of soft and quick in our search for cuddly, huggable yarns. It blends the softness of alpaca with the springy reliability of Peruvian Highland wool at a nice, chunky gauge. And its saturated, heathered colors provide a great range of choices for any home.

Pick up the pattern below (if you don't already have it). Then choose two colors of Ultra Alpaca Chunky; you'll need 2 skeins each of 2 colors for the pillow. For a full selection of colors, see the Berroco Ultra Alpaca Chunky page.
