Horseshoe Pillow

MIDNIGHT KNITTER

  

A great looking pillow that will impress your friends.  This pattern is pretty simple but looks fancy in this chunky yarn.  The only things you need to know how to do is yarn over increases and decreases as well as making a cable in the center.  Seed stitch edges create a nice contrast to the pattern.
