Modern Spice Pillow Handknit & Pom Poms

Modern Spice Pillow design & handmade by Minaz Jantz

 'Modern Spice' pillow is designed with a varied combination of stitches and like cooking with international spices, I like to add a little of this and that to make for a unique blend of colours and textures for this exotic pillow.

Patons Classic 100% wool in Denim Blue (back cover) with Turquoise Blue and Burnt Orange for the front cover make for a warm and comfortable pillow.

I like seeking out new stitches in embroidery, knit and crochet online. I found a crochet flower stitch in English to finish off the edges of 'Modern Spice' pillow. I had a lot of fun learning the flower stitch and using the colourful multi-colour sock yarn to add further SPICE to the pillows colour combinations.

Fun flower crochet stitch to try...check out this video below:

The peach silky yarn is like a rope with silky threads and very difficult to work with but managed to use it as a detail for a stitch I made up looking like wheat grasses and used this same yarn to single crochet a border around the pillow cover.

My Pom Pom maker is an antique fork and learned online how to use a fork for a small size Pom Pom for adding texture to an otherwise flat surface. I am loving the use of multi-colour sock yarn for small Pom Poms.

Watch this video below to learn how to use a fork to make Pom Poms:

'Modern Spice' pillow will add a splash of colour and spice up any chair, couch or bed.
