*****************PATTERN PDF file for Soft Sand cushion cover**************
Reminiscent of soft, white sand on a hot summer’s day, these cushions, with undulating cables, will bring a touch of summer to your home.
Superchunky/superbulky yarn makes for an up-to-date and superquick knit. You can display the buttons or have the cushion the other way round to show off the cables.
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 with buttons and buttonholes to enable easy insertion of the cushion. There is the option of no buttons or buttonholes for a simpler closure on the reverse of the cushion, if you prefer.
Knitted on flat 2 needles and sewn up the sides.
Instructions are in English, with British and American terms. Full support if needed - I am always willing to help.
