Knit PDF - Pom Pom Bolster
My Pom Pom Bolster is knit in a tube to form the body of Fair Isle patterned panels. The end is then worked in reverse stockinette stripes and decreased like a hat to create a flat shaped end. For the remaining end, a striped circular piece is knit separately just like the flat shaped circular end. The bolster is stuffed with a pillow form (I got mine from Company Store) and the circle shape is sewn on to close the bolster. Giant multi-color pom poms are sewn onto each end.
This design was originally published in my book Color By Kristin by Sixth and Spring in 2009.
Personalize your bolster by choosing your own Fair Isle body pattern or stripes of Fair Isle from the 240 different Fair Isle charts in my Color by Kristin eBook. The eBook includes lots and lots of instructions for beginning Fair Isle knitters along with 24 different edge treatments and over 240 Fair Isle charts.
