Sweater Knit Pillows: Cute, But Do They Really Fit?

Sweater Knit Pillows: Cute, But Do They Really Fit?

I've been intrigued by sweater knit pillows for quite a while. When I've seen them in stores and online I'm never sure if they really look great or if I'm just more smitten with the idea. Here's a little roundup of a few cute pillows, but I'm wondering: have you been able to successfully bring sweater knit pillows into your space?

There are a lot of shops and crafters offering hand-knit or recycled sweater pillow covers, and as a true fan of a great knit sweater, snuggling up with a knit pillow really appeals to me. I'm just having a hard time picturing it working on any couch, and in particular, I'm really not sure about bringing in acrylic knits.
