It’s fun to watch the colors in this DK weight yarn repeat and play off each other when they are knitted multidirectionally. Start by knitting the center diagonal strip, then pick up stitches along each long edge and decrease to form corners. Backing is made of fabric, attached with a sewing machine.

Finished dimensions: 18.5” x 18.5”
Requires one 18-inch pillow insert; approx 3/4 yd of fabric for backing (sample is shown using Liberty Tana Lawn)
