Hi everyone this is my first blogpost!
I had plans for a blog earlier but thought it was difficult and did not know how to do this. So I did some research on the internet and just started. Hope you don’t mind my mistakes, because I have to learn everything about blogging.
So now I will give you some information about the cushion I made with the Intarsia technique.
The pattern of the cushion is designed by littledoolally.com and I found it in Simply crochet magazine 05/2014. You can also buy this and other gorgeous patterns in her shop.
The Intarsia technique is a great technique to make a pattern in your project like the bird in the cushion. The difference with Tapestry crochet is that you don’t take the other colors of yarn with you while crocheting. Once you change to another color you leave the color you were using hanging on the backside of your work. You can find a tutorial about the technique also at Littledoolally. This is also a video tutorial about the Intarsia technique intarsia
I really like the technique and I am allready working on another intarsia project. This time I use a stitch counting pattern which I will show you in another post. Hope you liked reading this. happy Wednesday!
