This gorgeous crochet pillow may not be what comes to mind when you think of intarsia crochet. The intarsia crochet patterns don’t have to be all stars, snowflakes and flowers and, as both crochet and math lover, I often design geometric patterns so they can look quite modern as it does here.

There are a lot of ways to make your crocheting interesting, from textured stitch patterns to unique shaping, but my all-time favourite is to use colorwork. This modern intarsia crochet design is a great way to get practice with intarsia crochet colorwork as well as an awesome opportunity to create a unique home decor item.

Just like the Dioon Pillow, this intarsia crochet pillow cover was also made with Scheepjes’ Stone Washed yarns. I love my Cevro Intarsia Crochet Pillow in creamy and pink, but it would look beautiful in any colors that matches your home. What colors do you imagine for this 2-tone intarsia crochet pillow?

Combine this intarsia crochet pillow with your favourite crochet blanket and you will have the perfect set for you couch or for a lovely gift.

Intarsia crochet is a technique for working two (or more) colors of yarn in the same row. It’s fun and easy to work once you get the hang of it. The color changes are close together. This allows you to carry the yarn you aren’t working with across the wrong side of the work as you go. You will pick up each strand as you need it. All strands or floats of yarn thus are left on the wrong side of the work.

If you are a adventurous beginner or just learning the intarsia crochet technique, this pillow pattern is a great starter piece! Its small size (40cmx40cm/ 15.75”x15.75”) makes it manageable and quick to complete. As long as you know how to single crochet and change colors, you’re set!

This intarsia crochet pillow is worked in single crochet following the color chart. Back of the pillow is created using two pieces for an envelope case that makes it easy to remove the cover for the washing.

 If you need help with the intarsia crochet itself or how to read a graph, here is my INTARSIA CROCHET TUTORIAL.
