This product is a PDF download of the pattern for knitting a pillow. We do not sell the actual finished pillow.

It's a toy, it's a pillow, it's a stage prop, it's a stringed instrument in more ways than one! What is it? It's Lyre, Lyre, a huggable soft-sculpture knitted harp. Make it for yourself or for your favorite musician.

Note: this does not actually play music.
