I have experience, and I am not sure if I can even make this myself! I find it hard to believe that it fits into the "easy" category, but okay. The mere fact that we are working with three different colors at once and changing frequently should be enough to warrant an "intermediate" rating. I LOVE all things Brit and this pillow cover is no exception. I am afraid to even start this for fear that I won't be able to do it. That being said, she DOES provide a video link for specific instruction of the proper color changing/carrying over yarns. This gives me hope that it can be done.

What a lovely project to celebrate the Queens Sapphire Jubilee! But Im not planning to limit this pattern to a pillowit would make a great shoulder bag, too. I debated about working a solid color back for the bag, but Ill probably just make two Union Jacks and make it a reversible bag. It calls for a broad shoulder strap in one of the colors, but Ill decide which color when I complete the bag.
