The zzzzz PILLOW is all about sleep…..’OUT LIKE A LIGHT’ - ‘SLEEP TIGHT’ - ‘NIGHTY-NIGHT’ - ‘CLOSE YOUR EYES’……(too bad there wasn’t room for ‘YOUR GETTING SLEEPY’!!)

The pillow is worked ITR (in-the-round) started at the very center of the end using double-pointed needles and then is worked outward and upward following the Ticker Graphs. These graphs are easy to follow….the same word ‘image is repeated around. This creates and uneven seam (but then again, letters aren’t symmetric!) - but it is hardly noticeable after all the ends are woven in. Finally, the bolster is punctuated with pom-poms at either end.
