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.
