I got bored one day and started making this. I made the intarsia pattern myself by stealing my boyfriend's copy of the Complete Guide and figuring it out. This ended up being a pillow for my boyfriend, after I knitted another black rectangle, this time in garter stitch so it would have a different texture. After I get the pattern scanned, I'll let you all have it. Smiley

How's it look?




**EDIT**

I finally found the chart after I cleaned off my desk. Sorry it's so crude. I hadn't heard of knitters graph paper until a month or so after I made it, but it still works. I hope you're able to read it properly. If you make anything using it, be sure to let me know and see the finished product!  Cheesy

Here it is:

I was just scrolling through the 30 most recent posts and I scrolled past this and my eyes popped out of my head and my jaw fell open. Ha. So very cool! This is why I need to learn to knit. Looks good. I'd like to see it in pillow form.
