About Pattern World

Pattern World began its life as a simple hobby website few years ago. After selling my first patterns on different online platforms and receiving positive feedbacks from happy customers I realised that there is some interest in my designs and decided to create a new website where my crochet and knitting patterns are sold, free video tutorials as well as my inspiration findings and various craft projects are shared with my customers and followers within my blog.

 

At this stage of my life I enjoy creating baby items, especially blankets made using intarsia technique.

 

Definition: Intarsia - a method of knitting with a number of colours, in which a separate length or ball of yarn is used for each area of colour.

 

Having Diploma in Interior Design and currently working as a Graphic Designer I utilise all my knowledge and experience when developing ideas for my future crochet and knitting patterns.

 

I believe that many of you will find Pattern World as a beneficial resort for inspiration and interesting projects. If you’ve made something from one of my designs please email photos of your completed items. I would love to share your work on my Facebook page with your name attached. It is such a great pleasure to me as a designer to see what people have made using my designs!

 

Please feel free to join our Facebook group that was created to support Pattern World's customers, followers and anyone who is interested in crochet and knitting.

Crochet Intarsia - Reversible Crochet - Crochet Colour Change - Tutorial

Intarsia - a method of knitting or crochet with a number of colours, in which a separate length or ball of yarn is used for each area of colour. Intarsia blanket should be worked with separate balls of yarn for each colour segment. The yarn that is not in use should be always kept on wrong side of work and used in each following row for corresponding colour segment of design. It needs to be cut off with approximately 5 cm end left only when a particular colour segment is completed. All remaining yarn ends should be weaved in after the whole blanket body is finished.

 

 

 

 

1. Work required number of stitches for the first colour segment with corresponding colour yarn. It is green in example 1. Do not complete the last dc(sc) of that segment leaving two loops on your hook. Leave green yarn on the wrong side of your work. Do not cut it off. Take the next colour yarn. It is red in the above example.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

2. Complete the last dc(sc) of the first green segment by pooling the loop of red yarn through two loops on your hook. Both green yarn and short red yarn end should be left on the wrong side of your work.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

3. Continue working required number of stitches for the second colour segment (red). Do not complete the last dc(sc). Join separate ball of yarn that is required for the next colour segment. It is green in example 3. Do not cut off red yarn. Leave it on the wrong side of your work. Complete the stitch with green colour yarn as described in steps 1 and 2.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

4. If your design requires one of the colour segments to be expanded for a number of stitches (it is red in example 4), you should pull corresponding yarn (red) long enough to reach the last unfinished stitch of previous segment and complete that stitch.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

5-6. Short length of red yarn is positioned above two green stitches. Next dc(sc) should be worked over both two loops of next green stitch and red yarn that is laying on top of it. Work the next dc(sc) exactly the same way. 

Continue working dc(sc) in every dc(sc) of red colour segment.

 

 

7-8. If the same colour segment (red) is required to be expanded on another side (left), pick up the yarn that corresponds to the next colour segment (green) from wrong side of work. Place it on top of stitches and continue working dc(sc) in required number of stitches with red colour yarn over both two loops of dc(sc) of previous row and green yarn that is laying on top of that stitch. Do not complete the last dc(sc) with red. Leave red yarn on the wrong side of your work and complete the stitch with green that was brought through.
