Herringbone Stitch Pillow

Lion Brand« Wool-Ease® Thick & Quick®

GAUGE:

9 sts = 4 in. (10 cm) in St st (k on RS, p on WS)

When you match the gauge in a pattern, your project will be the size specified in the pattern and the materials specified in the pattern will be sufficient. The needle or hook size called for in the pattern is based on what the designer used, but it is not unusual for gauge to vary from person to person. If it takes you fewer stitches and rows to make your swatch, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles.

Herringbone Stitch Pillow Reviewed by Connie Fetterman on 2013-12-14 *****
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!!
