Tired of trying to puzzle out the intricacies of colorwork or the mysteries of miters alone? This pattern can be your own personal class as you watch the pieces come together in this colorful, decorative pillow. Clear directions will walk you through the steps of creating mitered squares, creating a base row and a second row while you choose which pattern and color combination each square will be. Once you’ve created two colorful bands of double mitered squares, you’re ready to explore different combinations of intarsia and illusion knitting on a central modular panel. When you have these techniques down, you’ll want to create an array of pillows to show off your skills!
