Pattern Details

You can never have too many cushions. Scattered over a comfy sofa they add a homely touch to any room, softening the look of a bare area and making it feel warm and welcoming. The pattern includes five different looks, all from the same sequence of stitches, giving a co-ordinated set of cushions. Knit just one or two cushions to add to your existing collection, or all five for a brand-new look. The covers are easily removed as they are buttoned over the cushion pad underneath, making it easy to change the look in your room as you move from season to season. NB: A co-ordinating pattern for a matching rug, the Rare Earth Rug, is available separately. PATTERN INFORMATION: The pattern includes stitch charts and full line-by-line instructions and is available for immediate download as a pdf file formatted for US/Letter-sized paper. The pdf file can be printed out or viewed on a computer, iPad or iPhone directly. The pattern is also available in a UK version for printing onto A4 stationery. Please let me know if you would prefer this version. © Moira Ravenscroft, 2015 E-mail: Website: - - - - - DIFFICULTY: Intermediate SIZE: To fit 40x40cm / 16x16 ins cushion/pillow form YARN: Cascade 220 or hand-spun worsted wt yarn, 100% wool, 205m/220 yds : 100gm ball Cols: 5 co-ordinating colours x 1 ball of each colour for each cushion CIRCULAR NEEDLES: Sizes 4.5mm/US#7 & 5.0mm/US#8 X 80cm/32 ins or longer GAUGE: 17 sts & 28 rows : 10cm/4 ins in Four-&-Two Basketweave Patt using 5.0mm/US#8 ndls. # knit, knitting, pattern, knitting pattern cushion, cushions, knitted, knitted cushion, knitted cushions, pillow, pillows, knitted pillow, knitted pillows, wool, handspun, hand-spun, hand spun, spinning, brown, cream, white, beige, natural, interior decor,
