This is a knitting/sewing pattern in two parts:

  1. Knitting an Intarsia pillow front, as shown.
  2. Machine-sewing a lined, zippered pillow cover.

Knitting techniques used include knit and purl, as well as color switching using the intarsia method. Panel is knit flat. Knitting instructions are written and charted. Measurements are in inches and centimeters. Sewing instructions are in inches only. Basic machine sewing experience is assumed. Due to the challenge of sewing with extremely thick (knit) fabric, this pattern is not recommended as a first sewing project.
