PDF PATTERN for Knitting the "Song of Avalon" Harp Pillow

Item #p9227

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

Song of Avalon is a huggable harp pillow pattern designed by Caroline Steinford. It is based on the graceful, swooping lines of a small lap harp. The embroidered strings are accurately color coded just like a real harp. It's a unique gift or accent to make for a harper's home.
Note: Does not actually play music.
