Spoilers February loom pattern

Cabled Tree Throw Pillow

For the February 2017 Classic shipment I really wanted to challenge myself and do something that can be used year round.

The Yarn
     Lets talk about the yarn first. This month you will receive 2 hanks, 335 yards each, Miss Babs Inspired by Nature Yummy 3-Ply Sport Yarn . This 100% superwash merino wool is perfect for this project. It is easy to clean, durable, and the hand dyed yarn works up so nice! 

The Loom
      This month I used the 120 peg 1/4 gauge Adult Hat Loom from CinDwoodLooms. Any 1/4 gauge loom with at least 74 pegs will work for this project.

The Pattern
      Download it here! The pattern this month is not a pattern for beginners. I strongly urge you to be very familiar with how to cable before trying this pattern. There are over 150 6-stitch cables in the background alone. This is a pillow cover not a pillow you stuff. The reason for me writing the patter this way is so that you will be able to clean it easily and have many more years of enjoyment out of it. The pattern is wrote up for 1 14x14 throw pillow BUT , can easily convert to 2 12x12 pillows instead if you would like I personally prefer the size of the 14x14 pillows myself. There is a beginning to end video, written directions, and a printable chart for the tree to help you with the pattern.

   I hope everyone enjoys making this pattern as much as I did writing it.
