It is Burnett velvet. You also can head on over to your local Jo-ann, store right now and get your really cozy touchable. So soft - and I just love this navy Yard burnout velvet now the color I selected - it's called indigo velvet and this shade is available exclusively at Jo-ann. You'll want to get two balls of the Burnett velvet yarn and mine here is called indigo velvet. Then one circular needle size, seven us that is 24 inches in length or longer, as well as a pillow form that is 20 inches square, so textured and tasseled pillow. It is the front of the pillow and we're knitting it up in seed stitch, and let me show you how mine is knitting at so I have my circular needle and my beautiful burnout velvet yarn we're going to use a little bit of cardboard.
That's actually in a week, three sharp scissors are really helpful for this pillow and, of course, a little Kasturi needle, and I am going to do a gauge SWAT. It really is helpful for this project to make sure that it fits the pillow form, so you'll be doing 12 stitches by 20 rows to make a little 4x4 swatch you'll see that it's really really stretchy and we're doing it in the seed stitch, because we're casting On an even number of stitches, the seed stitch here is k1 p1 on the right side and then p1 k1 on the wrong. So, let's knit it up, we begin with our beloved slipknot and using our circular needle we are going to be casting on I'm just doing the longtail cast on method. Of course, if you guys are finding that other techniques are working for you, let us know down in the comments below and we're casting on a total of 57 stitches. It'S an odd number of stitches to make this seed stitch a no-brainer. So every single row is going to be k1 p1 and you'll see the asterisks right there.
That means that we are repeating the pattern within those asterisks. So that's K, 1 and knit 1. We bring our yarn to the front, and that is our p1. Our purl 1 and we bring our yarn back to the back, to repeat this pattern of k1 p1. You are going to become very familiar with the seed stitch, creating this pillow and you will just continue this pattern. All the way down the row and then you'll see there's an extra little k1 there in the instructions, and that just means knit 1, and that will be your last little stitch at the very end of your row right here and flipping to the wrong side of Our work, we are doing the exact same pattern so on every single row. This is the reason I wanted us to cast on an odd number of stitches so that you can easily do this project. While you are watching television in the waiting room - and you don't have to really pay attention to where you are in the pattern, because every single row is exactly the same k1 p1 and then your last little stitch will be a k1 knitting one. And you just keep knitting up the front of your pillow here until it is 20 inches in height, that's pretty pretty little seed stitches there and with this burnout velvet yarn, it feels so good, let's just take a moment to luxuriate and how pretty it is and How good it feels alright, so casting off really simple.
I am just using a very basic cast off method here, I'm just knitting two stitches and then I am passing that stitch right on over and I'm not worried about it being knits and pearls for casting off, because this edge here is going to be into a Seam for our pillow so just cast off to the very end, then you can break your yarn, get that tapestry needle and thread your little yarn tail through it. That last little loop go ahead, thread your tapestry needle and then you can just do some light, weaving in and here's how the edge of our pillow looks - and this is oh, my gosh, it's so big - our 20 by 20 pillow when we're done. This is the front of our pillow, and this is the pattern for week one of this really beautiful textured and hassled pillow. So I hope you are inspired to knit up this really cool textured and tasseled pillow week, one it's the front of the pillow we're going to have weeks two and week three, where it all comes together, so go get your Burnett velvet yarn right now. If you haven't already and have fun with that k1 p1 seed stitch, if it's a new one to you, you will definitely have this knit stitch pattern memorized by the end of making this pillow.
