This knitting pattern is in English.
The Technicolor Pillow is worked back and forth in a slipped stitch pattern. The backside of the pillow is fabric. Front and back are sewn together at the end.
The pillow is worked in three strands of yarn held together throughout, and the gradual transitions between colors are achieved by continuously changing between the different colors held together.
The color changes are thoroughly described in the pattern. Work the pillow in your favorite colors and either meticulously change colors as the pattern dictates or use the description in the pattern as a guide and inspiration and create your own interpretation of the Technicolor Pillow.
