Are you loving the new Bernat Maker Home Dec yarn as much as I am but need some project inspiration?! Look no further! Yarnspirations has published a brand new lookbook full of free patterns using Bernat Maker Home Dec yarn! The Cast Away ebook is full of summer themed projects. I love the breezy beachy feel to each one and immediately had to make the Catch A Wave pillow! You can download the lookbook HERE to see all of the projects. If you haven’t had a chance to pick up the Bernat Maker yarn yet, you need to get your hands on some. It’s a tubular yarn with a soft, jersey t-shirt feel that is perfect for home projects likes rugs, blankets, and pillows! Available for purchase at Michaels Craft Stores and Yarnspirations.com.
The Catch A Wave pillow was such a fun project and great addition to my Southern California decor! By following a pixel graph, I used SC stitches to create the wave picture on the front of the pillow. BUT don’t feel limited. That graph would make such a nice C2C project as well!
So I have to make a confession… I didn’t weave in my ends 🙂 I hid them on the inside of my pillow! This pillow is for my personal home decor so I’m not too worried about it, but if you are giving it as a gift I would suggest securing those ends. But it was nice to be able to make color changes and fasten off my yarn in many spots and not worry about those darn ends!
Here is a little video of me stitching up the last side of the pillow:
Can’t wait to see your waves!
