Herringbone Stitch Pillow Reviewed by flo on 2015-01-07 *****
a great stitch pattern, I found that I had to write down all my rows to avoid any mistakes. Memory is not my forte! I recommended using one colour only, which I didn't and wished I had. the 'fabric' is very thick and durable. Not for blanket or scarf, but ideal for a strong cushion.

This is so nice! Following the corrections it works up beautifully. I used Thick & Quick's Grey Marble because I had it on hand. In the right setting it will be beautiful. However, I really think the stitch will show up better in a solid color. This works up quickly--immediate gratification. As others have said, it is imperative that you keep track of your rows or you will be lost. Otherwise, try this pattern!!

Herringbone Stitch Pillow Reviewed by Cynthia Talbot on 2012-05-18 ****
This is an awesome pillow! I almost ran out of yarn, so I quit a bit soon and then blocked it out to 20x20 inches. That worked great! Keeping track of the rows is important. So I put a marker on the 12th row, moving it every 12 rows. Works great! My back didn't close really well, so I added a couple buttons. I also added a twisted cord around the edge. Great pattern!

Herringbone Stitch Pillow Reviewed by k. blease on 2010-12-13 *****
I first saw this pillow in the Lion Brand Yarn catalog. I use the same yarn, although I couldn't find it in the color Linen at our local craft store, which the pattern called for, so I used Oatmeal instead.

The pattern is definitely an intermediate. You will need to keep careful track of your rows, tallying as you go along. If you skip a row by accident, the pattern will not forgive you. I had to rip it out four times before I figured out which row I was missing, but that's my own fault. It's been a while since I knitted a project, so this was a good way to practice and get back into the swing of it.

Here is a picture of the finished product, which I love, along with another pillow I made, using the same yarn and needles. The pattern I got from Lion's stitch encyclopedia. It's a cable called honeycomb.

All in all, I'm pretty happy with the results!
