Contranym Series — Inspiration

Before I was a knitter and a maker, I was a copywriter... so I have a deeply rooted love of words and their meanings. A contranym is a word which has two meanings, both contradictory to each other. I chose Contranym for this pillow series because it reflects the dual nature of the pillow itself. Though I used only one stitch (stockinette), the look changes dramatically at the midline when the stitch is flipped (reverse stockinette). 


12" x 12" square
