A folksy birdy motif is repeated in this colourful design on the front, while the same colours are playfully used in random stripes with decorative buttons for the reverse, allowing you to ring the changes as you fancy by simply turning the cushion around. This pattern includes comprehensive instructions for knitting with colour charts plus detailed instructions on how to make the cushion up.
A note about using this pattern: To make the cushion you will need to know how to be able to: knit; purl; place beads; and work using the intarsia technique. If you don’t know these there are a multitude of free instruction videos available on sites such as www.youtube.com.
Materials Yarn I used Rowan Pure Wool DK here which is an excellent choice in terms of quality, wash-ability and choice of colours available, but you could use an alternative dk (light worsted) yarn, just remember to adjust quantity of yarn as needed. The colours I used may no longer be available and were:
Yarn A (terracotta) 1
Yarn B (pale blue) 2
Yarn C (deep raspberry pink) 1
Yarn D (cream) 2
Yarn E (dark brown) 1
Yarn F (parsley green) 1
I bought several patterns that were specific to what I was looking for, but couldn't find locally. I was amazed at the choice of patterns available and very pleased with the one that were downloaded as PDFs (saving paper, print costs and postage), and of course, I could start immediately!
