Experimenting colours and charting my own motifs & icons I compose a series of pillows on the way. Just to enjoy stranding colours without shaping, round and round you go and last but not least my kauni stash has finally found its destination too!

Finished measurements
Width and height 45 x 45 cm (18 x 18 in).

Skill
Intermediate: this pattern involves working in the round and stranded colourwork.

Techniques
How to read the charts:
Multiple: knit the to-be-repeated pattern horizontally (amount of stitches per row).
Repeat: knit the to-be-repeated pattern vertically (amount of rows).

In all you knit 256 stitches over 161 rows ticking away six colours over five charts.

Happy colourwork knitting!
