Back when I was finishing up the capybara I made for my friendâ€™s daughter, Owen got hold of the book the pattern was in â€“Â Huge and Huggable Mochimochi, by Anna Hrachovec. When he saw the utterly adorbz robot pillow in there, he asked me to make it for him. Disinclined to travel anywhere with a 20â€x26â€ pillow, I ordered worsted weight yarn for it instead of chunky, and MondayÂ night I cast on, using 3.75mm needles instead of the 6.5mm ones called for in the pattern. I want this pillow to be small enough not to be a total pain in the ass to tote around.
Iâ€™ve never done intarsia, kids. Iâ€™m half excited and half petrified. Got tips? Iâ€™d love some.
