Pampered Pet Pillow

Furlike yarn gives the pillow its fluffy, downy-soft look and feel.

This easy-to-knit pattern can be sized for your pet; multiply the per-inch stitch gauge by the desired width, and knit both front and back pieces until they're square. Keep in mind the available sizes of pillow forms and covers to keep this an easy no-sew project. Don't stop with one pillow -- it's perfect for your human friends, too!
