Brought to you by the talented design team at Yarnspirations, the Knit Rocket Ship Pillow is a must-have kids’ room accessory.
In fact, this pattern is ideal for intermediate knitters who want to experience working with intarsia and fringe techniques.
Moreover, it comes in one size measuring approximately 20.5 inches tall by 18 inches wide not including the fringe. That’s about 52 cm by 45.5 cm if you prefer to use the metric system.
To make this pillow, you will need the Bernat Baby Sparkle yarn, a superbly light-weight yarn. It’s spun from a quality blend of acrylic and nylon. Plus, it’s super fine and soft, making it perfect for making baby garments and accessories.
Furthermore, you will need a US size 10.5 knitting needle. That’s 6.5 cm if you prefer to use the metric system.
For this pattern, you will have to make a basic left-slanting decrease or ssk. This is a single decrease technique that slants to the left.
If you want a thorough guide to making the ssk, check out our fully illustrated tutorial for this technique. You can find it up here: Basic Left-Slanting Decrease (SSK).
Likewise, the pattern requires the Bar Increase technique, commonly abbreviated as KFB in knitting patterns. This one is a visible decrease technique that is left-leaning. For a useful tutorial on this technique, you can check it out here: Learn How to Make a KFB or Bar Increase.
