Chunky Colorful Pillow

This beautiful pillow pattern can be found on Crochet me and was designed by Julie Holezt. Its made using blended wool on one side and recycled silk yarn on the other side. I haven't seen any yarn in Hobby Lobby made from recycled silk, but I can definitly see this beautiful pillow being made with some other kind of chunk hand spun looking yarn.

The yarn is handspun in Nepal using fiber remnants from garments like the beautiful, colorful, luxurious saris worn by women throughout South Asia . The colors in each skein are hand twisted into a thick and thin yarn at random, so no two skeins are alike.

The pattern is to long to put into one post so here I the link to it.
