With bright colors and bold stripes, the Sunny Stripes Patio Pillow is a perfect way to brighten up your patio and get it ready for all the summer barbecues, pool parties and get togethers. This quick and easy pillow is made with only one skein of Bernat Maker Outdoor yarn and works up in one afternoon.

For this project, I picked out a $5 turquoise patio pillow from walmart and used a stitch that would let some of the turquoise show through and accent the bright orange of the yarn. Make up a few of these  and a few of my Sun Shine Patio Pillows and your outdoor living area will have a beautiful pop of cheery color. 

The yarn used in this project is the new Bernat Maker Outdoor yarn. This yarn still has the soft stretchy feel of the Maker line but with and added fade resistance for outdoor use. Using a big hook, the yarn helped make the super quick project.

Dimensions

Notes

– With my tension I was able to get three rows from each color before the color changed, I would have 1-2 feet left over of each color. I just clipped the yarn and started the new color at the end of the third row.

– I do not count the turning chain as a stitch.

    Came to visit this pillow, and I got distracted visiting on Instagram. Oops, hehe. I am following you there, would also love to be able to follow by email.
    This pillow is really pretty, and I love the pair of it with the turquoise pillow. Pinned. I am so interested in trying this Outdoor yarn being that it is fade and mold resistant, but I haven’t worked with regular Maker yarn simply because when I went into the store to look at it, I could already see the fuzz factor from touching it. I am worried that the Outdoor will fuzz up too being exposed to the outdoors, and normal wear and tear. Thoughts?
    I would love if you came by to link up with us! This month, I am sponsoring the giveaway of some Berroco Folio yarn! Current one is here: https://eyeloveknots.com/2018/06/super-crafty-sunday-link-up-6-eyeloveknots-sponsored-giveaway.html

      I am afraid I can not give you feedback yet on how the Outdoor yarn will hold up. I loved crocheting with it. I have not seen it fuzz yet, but I will keep an eye on it. As for email, I am working on getting that set up. I have only been semi-seriously blogging for about 3 months and that is next on my list. As my littlest girl gets a little bit more stable I will be able to work more. I will definitely link up at your link party. See you there.
