Fair Isle patterns aren’t just for cold weather anymore.
As the tiniest hints of spring were showing this month, I was scurrying like a chipmunk to finish this cozy, bright, and colorful pillow pattern. It’s created with one of my favorite knit-look crochet techniques: waistcoat stitch and tapestry-style colorwork.
And it’s easier than you probably think it is!
You can create this Fair Isle style pillow with the colors listed in the pattern or different colors of your choosing. You don’t need to use the same yarn as I did, as long as it’s all the same gauge and fiber.
The pattern is available for FREE on Ravelry.
