I have created another pillow for the couch :)
Using 5mm needles
Gauge 6 stitches per inch
CO 68 stitches
Row 1: *K6P1K1P1K1P1K1* REPEAT FROM *TO* UNTIL END OF THE ROW
Row 2: *P6K1P1K1P1K1P1* REPEAT FROM *TO* UNTIL END OF THE ROW
REPEAT ROWS 1 AND 2 TWICE
NEXT ROW: *P1K1P1K1P1K1K6* REPEAT FROM *TO* UNTIL END OF THE ROW
NEXT ROW: *K1P1K1P1K1P1P6* REPEAT FROM *TO* UNTIL END OF THE ROW
REPEAT THE LAST TWO ROWS TWICE
Continue this patter until the piece measures about 30-31 inches
Mattress stitch the sides of the pillow
Put pillow filling inside and then stitch up the top with your best mattress stitch!

Lucas and Christopher made the trip to Calgary in February to visit their brother and NEW WIFE (congrats).
Lucas requested a BIG cowl to wear while skiing.
I took my skinny cowl and CO 120 stitches on a size 5 needles and knit my heart out. I knit 1/2 of the cowl the day before they left in 4 hours.
