My name is Tracy and I am a freelance knit/crochet designer living and working in the scenic Peak District area in the UK. I have knitted almost as long as I have walked, having been taught at a very young age by my aunt. I quickly caught the knitting bug and have almost always had at least one project on the go ever since!! I find knitting incredibly therapeutic and get totally immersed in the design process.
I have been selling my pattern designs for the past 4 years - a process now made much easier since the revolution of the .pdf file! My patterns have been sold all over the world and I love it when knitters share their finished projects with me. My favourite designs are those that inspire new knitters to pick up the needles and start a project ... so many of my designs are based on simple stitch patterns that do not take too much concentration to knit and using heavier weight yarns so that projects can be completed quickly.
I love how this design gives the look of cable stitches but without the use of a cable needle! Using a combination of knit and purl stitches only, this cushion can be knitted up much faster than a traditional cable design and once you have the hang of the stitch pattern, it is fairly easy to memorise too!
The pattern is written in English terms but with minimum abbreviations.
18sts and 24 rows to 10cm square over pattern using 5mm (US8) needles
