return on creativity: knit net pillow


Here's another stretchy knit pillow.  I made this with the same green knit as the knit starburst pillow.

I started with a seventeen inch square of muslin and several strips of one inch wide and six inch long green knit.



I don't have many good pictures of the process because I got a little frustrated.  When I started sewing and linking the knit I got "lost in the net" (which sounds like a movie from the early nineties).    

I drew a not so good diagram of the process.  Hopefully between the hand written diagrams and the sub par pictures you'll have some idea of what I did.


Here's a picture of a chain from step 1.


Connecting the chains in step 3.


Forming the net in step 4.


And here's the finished pillow front.  I made the net kinda tight as the knit stretches and I wanted it to stretch across the pillow.

Then I sewed it all into a pillow cover with an envelope closure.



Happy sewing and thanks for following!
