How to knit a “FALL” intarsia knit square, free pattern

As part of the charity cozy FALL MAL of 2022 (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!

The pattern is for a single square knitted in worsted yarn.

Use the free patterns shared in this make-a-long to make a gorgeous blanket with knitted squares or add some splashes of fall to your decor with a pillow on the couch.



More about the Make-a-long:

Two incredible ladies, Noorain of Noor’s Knits and Hortense of Knitting with Chopstick organized the Charity Cozy Fall Makealong.

Both ladies have personal stories and have had loved ones affected by childhood cancer. They have organized this event to give back where it’s most needed. A portion of the proceeds from this event will be donated to Cure Childhood Cancer. More about how you can contribute is below.

Please take care to share my pins on any of your social media accounts, to spread the word and help us achieve our goal for charity.

 The COZY FALL MAKEALONG CHARITY ran from the 3rd to 8th of October 2022.




The blanket that you’ll be making will be a truly special one. If you wish to, you can donate all your squares / finished blankets to a charity from the list provided (in the post of 30 September 2022 on Noors Knits).

Color A will be carried with the working yarn to fill in the gaps along the edges.• 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 to your knitting project.




  1. In this pattern, the main color (A), will be carried throughout and twisted to prevent gaps from forming.
  2. The following video explains how to strand the main color in purl rows –
  3. Stranding the main color causes floats on the back of your project.
  4. Twisting the yarn is done as follows: In a knit row at a color change, bring the next color between the needles and the working yarn and knit. In a purl row, you’ll do the same.
  5. 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.
  6. Tug both tails to secure the stitches (not too tight).
  7. Keep your tension even during color changes.
  8. If you have gaps in between your stitches, you’ll have to stitch it up whilst you are weaving in the ends.
  9. 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.
