As part of the charity cozy FALL MAL (Make-a-long), I'm sharing my "FALL" Intarsia knit square pattern.
My pattern is the seventh 8 x 8 original pattern for a knit square with the word. It spells "FALL" and each letter in its own color.
It's an easy introduction to Intarsia knitting, and suitable for the beginner knitter ready for a challenge!

FALL INTARSIA KNIT SQUARE PATTERN
WHAT YOU'LL NEED to knit squares:
- Knitting Needles: 5.5mm / I/9 (US) or 5 (UK)
- Yarn: 5 Autumn colors in worsted weight
- Color A - Cream
Color B - Orange
Color C - Golden Brown
Color D - Green
Color E - Dark Pink
- Stitch Markers
- Yarn needle to weave in ends
17 stitches/ 23 rows = 4 inches or 10cm in Stocking Stitch
8 inches by 8 inches or 20 by 20cm
k / knit
p / purl
st / stitch
sts / stitches
• Color A will be carried with the working yarn to fill in the gaps along the
• Ensure that the yarn overlaps when you are changing colors to avoid any holes in your knitting project.
•Intarsia knitting is a technique used to add multiple colors of yarn to create a picture, word, or design into your knitting project.
- In this pattern the main color (A), will be carried throughout and twisted to prevent gaps forming.
- The following video explains how to strand the main color in purl rows -https://youtu.be/Jbq4oiPt6yM.
- Stranding the main color causes floats on the back of your project.
- Twisting the yarn is done as follows: In a knit row at a color change, bring the next color between the needles and working yarn and knit. In a purl row, you'll do the same.
- Always bring up the new yarn from underneath the old yarn so the old yarn is on top as you knit the first stitch in the new color.
- Tug both tails to secure the stitches (not too tight).
- Keep your tension even during color changes.
- If you have gaps in between your stitches, you'll have to stitch it up whilst you are weaving in the ends.
- You can use bobbins for each of the colors, but it is not necessary as you won't use a lot of yarn and the balls of yarn are manageable.
