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.

– 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.
