For this option, we’ve created an interesting look by combining solid shades of Caron Simply Soft with the textured effect of Caron Simply Soft Tweeds. Intarsia techniques with simple color changes, work in tandem with knit stocking and reverse stocking stitches, to create woven-look, abstract stripes. Worked in flat panels and seamed together in finishing, this pillow cover sports a 2 x 2 ribbed, overlapping back opening, making it easy to remove. It’s an interesting pattern with lots to keep you engaged from beginning to end.

Other materials: 20” 51 cm square pillow form. Tapestry needle.
