Pattern Description:

Inspired by the iconic red and white 80's OXO apron, this bold cushion cover is a great statement for any chair! The combination of stripes and checks creates a strong geometric pattern that is very eye catching. It also holds potential to feel quite different if worked in softer color ways. Worked as a faux plaid, the vertical lines are added after the piece is knitted, this stops the piece from having large floats on the wrong side and saves yarn!

Since I can remember I have been experimenting with art and crafts, trying my hand at many many different things but when my Mam taught me knitting is when I really discovered my passion.
