Mystic Comfort Pillow: Take 2

I was lucky enough to test knit the Mystic Comfort Pillow for Katie. I am thrilled with this design. It was a very fun knit and a little addicting. I would have to force myself to put it down and go to bed at night.

It is a quick knit. The total time including blocking & seaming took me about 2 weeks to complete.  The pattern is easy to understand & follow and it’s also easy to memorize

I used Malabrigo Arroyo (review here) on a size 6 needle.  The pattern calls for a 7 but I know that I knit more loosely than Katie, so I dropped down a needle size to obtain gauge.  This yarn is magic on this size needle.

I can easily call this one of my most favorite knits! This will not be the last time I knit this pattern.

  1. I’ve admired this pillow from the first day it was posted a few months ago, I don’t know how to cable but would love to try and make this. What can you suggest for good You Tube videos ? Thanks

  2. I’m already working on the pattern after it came out yesterday. ‘Really enjoying it! Just learned cables last week courtesy of You Tube- they are so fun! Thanks for the pattern, Katie. Your pillow looks so nice, Kara!

  3. Just bought the pattern and can’t wait to go to my LYS and get the yarn. Love cables and love knitting pillows…can’t wait to get started!

  4. This is also a great gift idea. I don’t know anyone who wouldn’t want one of these beautiful pillows on their couch. ;)
