Description

I have always wanted to design a big flower on a cushion and the Rose was the most obvious flower to choose.  There is a large coloured intarsia chart to follow to knit the rose and it is recommended that yarn bobbins are used for the different colours as it avoids the yarn tangling.  I have knitted the rose in 3 shades of pink, but you could use  other colours to reflect the wonderful range of roses that are available.  

The cushion is knitted in one piece and there is a 4 button opening at the back.  Instructions are given for knitting 4 rose buds to form buttons.
