I've been super excited to share this pattern with you guys!
And it seems like it couldn't have come at a more opportune time. Right now, thanks to the coronavirus starting to spread through North Carolina, I'm at home in my pjs, and I imagine a lot of you are doing the same.
I could make a bunch of jokes about how I've been training for social distancing my whole life, but the reason behind it is scary. I hope you all are well and finding peace within the pandemonium.
For those of you who are well, and are maybe huddled up at home like me, I wanted to share this pattern release for free for the first 24 hours in hopes that it would brighten spirits and give you creative outlet. Starting a new project always lifts my spirits. If you happen to be reading this on March 20th-21st, click this link where you can sign up for my email and get this pattern in your inbox for free.
This pattern can also be found anytime in my Etsy Shop.
50% of all Modern Made Shop proceeds are being donated to Feeding America to support those affected by COVID-19, in any of the multitude of ways it has caused pandemonium in our communities. I hope you can help me in this cause.
So. The Adobe Throw Pillow Pattern.
Name: This name was actually a suggestion from one of my Instagram followers who I am DESPERATELY trying to remember. I thought I could go back and find the message but it seems to have disappeared. If you know who you are, DM me. If you just want credit, that's fine too. I'll believe you.
Anyways, I loved this name because the moss stitch does create a look that looks similar to the uneven stacking of adobe bricks.
Yarn: I actually designed this pattern around the yarn I used, which was Lion Brand's Hometown USA. Lion Brand sent me this yarn specifically to design with, and I thought it would make a nice throw pillow. I'll say more about this yarn in my yarn review, which I'll link here. For this pattern, I used 6 skeins in Los Angeles Tan.
While I've only tried this pattern with Hometown USA, I believe you could use any other Super Bulky weight yarn of your choosing. Just make sure to check your gauge first! I would be really interested to see how different textures of yarn make this pattern look!
Stitch: I used the moss stitch exclusively in this pattern, making this pattern super easy. The Adobe Throw Pillow pattern will teach you how to do the moss stitch if you don't already know (hint: its super easy). I'll also link a video tutorial for the moss stitch here.
That's all I've got for this pillow. Its simple. Its easy. It would look great on your couch.
