I can see from the response to my last post, that I need to write up separate instructions for this process. This knitted cording can be done on any pillow you are knitting. Even though I have assembled it with a cloth back, you can make a tubing for one with both sides knitted by incorporating the pick up stitches from the knitted back with the purl bars picked up in closing the tubing as instructed in the tutorial.
However, another option uses the double knitting technique, and a Kitchener stitch closure. I will work out a tutorial for this soon, as I have a heart shaped pillow planned and this one will require a knitted back.
The next addition to the “Wild Life Series” is a Wood duck. Vibrantly colored, with defined color changes, it is one of my favorite patterns. I will be using different stitches to add texture and detail to the finished piece. My yarn is ordered and I am anxiously waiting it’s arrival.
Hummm…..?????? I wonder what color border I should put on this one?
