*****************PATTERN PDF file for Big Owl cushion cover**************
This sweet owl needs friends – he’s very cuddly and likes to sit on your sofa!
Superchunky/superbulky yarn makes for an up-to-date and superquick knit.
The pattern is easy/intermediate, as you will need to know how to cast/bind on and off, knit, purl, and simple cabling. (Even if it’s your first time cabling, you will be able to, it’s that easy!) This is an envelope cushion cover to enable easy insertion of the cushion on the reverse side. There is an optional button band on the reverse if you prefer a button closure.
****Fun to knit and a great addition to your home!****
Knitted on flat 2 needles and sewn up the sides.
