How to Make a Knot Pillow DIY Tutorial

Knot pillows are trendy right now. Like really trendy. You will not believe how simple it is to make this trendy pillow knot design. This knot pillow DIY version costs a whole lot less than a store bought pillow knot and only takes about an hour to make.

I love how this looks. I think it is a fun design. There are many types of diy pillow knot designs, including traditional celtic knot pillows, but this one is great because it is just plain simple to make.

You can customize this to whatever color you like that fits your decor. You can make it monochrome, or use two different tights colors (like shown) to add a bit of depth and interest (whoever would have thought tights + depth + interest would be used in a sentence together!?) The tights used in this tutorial are actually winter tights, so a bit heavier material. When you purchase your tights, look for a heavy weave as opposed to thin tights. You do not want your stuffing slipping out, and you do not want the knot pillow to be see through!

• Fill your tights with stuffing one leg at a time, from toe to top of the leg. Do not pack the tight leg with polyester stuffing so tightly that you cannot shift it around a bit, because you will need to manipulate it later when folding the knot. Do not stuff the waistband.

• Fold the top piece down over the left piece.
• Fold the left piece over the bottom piece.
• Fold the top piece over the right piece.
• Fold the right piece inside the loop made by the top piece.

• Repeat from the top, but this time, go clockwise rather than counter-clockwise:
• Fold the top piece down over the right piece.
• Fold the right piece over the bottom piece.
• Fold the top piece over the left piece.
• Fold the left piece inside the loop made by the top piece.
• Gently tighten your knot.

• Spend some time adjusting your knot at this stage. More time was spent on this step than the all the rest of the steps because the positioning needed to be “just so”.

• If you have enough material left, you can go around a third time counterclockwise (optional, this tutorial only goes twice).
• Tuck the leftover ends where they fit naturally in the knot. The knot will hold together on its own, but you will want to sew the legs in place to prevent the knot from coming undone.
