Roxycraft Tutorial :: Knit a Wrist Pillow

Like I said earlier this week, I was in desperate need of a new wrist pillow (which in my case is actually more of an elbow pillow) to use while at my computer. I get the tendonitis, you know… So I knitted up a wrist pillow this week to help relieve my aches and pains.       

 Step One :: Knit it!
*Note-I realize my stripes are wonky…I had planed to make this a stuffie themed pillow but changed my mind. I'll give you the staight kntting pattern and leave out the stripes.

Materials:
Size 8 (5.0mm) 16" circular needle
1 Skein Vanna's Choice Yarn
yarn needled for closing and weaving in ends

Gauge:
6 rows x 4.5 stitches = 1"

CO 70 stitches
knit staright rows for 17" (add stripes if you'd like)
Bind off and close one seam

 

Step 2 :: Cut The Foam
I used "Airtex – Regular Density Foam" 1" thick.
Purchased at Joann's.

Lay your kntting on top of the foam and cut out the shape with scissors or a knife.

 

 

 

 

Step 3 :: Slip On

Scrunch up your knitting and slip the knitting over the foam like putting a sock on your foot.

 

 

 

 

 

Step 4 :: Close

I crocheted my seam shut, but you could easily shut it using a yarn needled and the whip stitch.

Don't forget to weave in all your ends!

 

 

 

Step 5 :: Give your wrists a rest!

Ahhhhhh! Soft and squishy.
