Machine Knitting bobbles can be fun and add a new look to your hats, sweaters and more.

I manually knit one stitch (center stitch)with a contrast color

Heart Pillow Cover

This heart Pillow cover I designed will just slip over your pillow and wala you have a Valentines Day Pillow. Knit on the knitting machine with 2/24 yarn (or 1/12) knit 2 strands for each color. I knit double bed using the ribber and on my Brother, Knitking machine I push the MCrib button for double bed knitting so I would not have any floats. I added beaded trim on the edges.
