I wanted another project and liked the free pattern. I enjoy a challenge, so complicated patterns suit me. I was fascinated by the pattern picture, especially when I read that it was made up of just 2 pieces - front and back - whilst it appears to be made from small squares.
It did take a while to understand the instructions, but it was fairly easy once I got going.
Now I have finished, I had enough wool to complete one more side, but plan to knit the back with a range of light to dark grey colours, which will compliment my settee.
