I designed "The Peace Pillow" knitting pattern for dear family friends. I picked the light tan and soft white color combination to fit with their neutral decor. However, this pillow would look great knit with any number of color combinations. How about red and white for the holidays! This pillow is knit with super bulky weight yarn and big needles so it knits up very quickly. SKILL LEVEL: Intermediate This is a two-color knitting pattern using the intarsia technique. Experience with intarsia knitting highly recommended! Instructions for intarsia knitting are NOT included in the pattern. Detailed, step-by-step finishing instructions with close-up photos included in the pattern. This pattern is written in standard U.S. knitting terms. I used Loops & Threads "Cozy Wool" super bulky yarn in the colors 'Mushroom' (light tan) and 'Fleece' (soft white). This is a nice, economically priced yarn. I used a basic, inexpensive pillow form.

I have been knitting since I was about 8 years old. My mother taught me to knit and my parents encouraged me to explore all kinds of arts & crafts activities by providing me with the materials that I needed to create. As a girl, I loved to sew (I spent hours using my mother’s sewing machine making clothes for my dolls), knit, draw and paint. In high school I spent all my extra time at school hanging out in the art room. In college I worked at a cute little yarn store and I still have some yarn in my stash that I bought at that store…way too many years ago! I love giving hand knit gifts to my friends and family. In these days of mass produced gifts (that often require a plug-in cord or battery) it is nice to give something that is truly one-of-a-kind. I love to see the smile on their faces when they open the gift I made for them. I enjoy knitting (of course!), teaching my daughter to sew, going to my son’s sporting events, baking, making jam in the summer, making homemade gingerbread houses in December, and going to the beach. I hope that you enjoy using my patterns to create special heirloom quality items for your home, friends & family.
