Three Geometric Pillows


Three Geometric Pillows by Carolyn Pfeifer in Love of Knitting, Spring 2016

Difficulty Level Experienced

Rediscover geometry and color your world with these bold pillows. Made in a washable acrylic yarn, they can handle daily use from kids and pets, and these clever patterns can fit into many decor styles just by changing the colors. Imagine the Diamond Center and Triangles pillows in a Southwestern scheme, while the Squares design can be woodsy (brown and rust tones), sophisticated (black, white, gray), or playful (primary colors). Intarsia knitting makes for quick and satisfying results.
