In case you can't tell right away, it's an homage to one of my favorite actors. I was looking for a quick project to use up some stash yarn and I came across this great chart based on this photo of Heath Ledger.
It knit up quickly and I added a few rows of garter stitch around the edge and knit a simple stockinette back for the pillow. I sewed a muslin pillow form for the inside to avoid any stuffing leaks.
Now if you'll excuse me I'm off to watch “10 Things I Hate About You.”
