DIY Marius pillow; from a sweater and a blanket

If you have a sweater that is too big or have got ruined in some way it would make a  great pillow. In this tutorial I have decided to make the sweater and a fleece blanket in to two pillows.

The sweater i used is in a traditional Norwegian pattern called “Mariusgenser”.

First I made the sweater in to two squares by sawing the sides and then cutting of the arms and the sides. Then i cut a square out of a fleece blanket.

Now you pin one the sweater square and the blanket square together, remember to have the inside out on the sweater. Leave the end of the sweater to be about 10-15 longer in the of the blanket.


Sew the three sides together, and leave one side open to fit the pillow inside.

Make hooks on the end of the sweater to fasten the end of the sweater to the other side of the pillow. You can do this by crocheting small hooks.

Sew on buttons on the blanket side for the hooks to go in.

Then you are done!

    How cool is that 🙂
    What kind of neck did the sweater have?

    • Thanks
      The neck on this particular sweater is non existing. The sweater used is a sweater I made too big and therefor had to make in to something else.
      But you can do this with all kinds of necks, just make the pillow from under the necks end.
