Christmas in a soft and cuddly cushion cover. Superchunky/superbulky yarn makes for an up-to-date, superquick and fun knit.
This is an intermediate knit, as you will need basic knitting skills and know how to use the Intarsia knitting technique, (knitting in blocks of colour), and how to follow a chart.
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.
Keep it traditional, or spice it up with funky colours, (purple tree anyone?), or match the colours to your room. Be creative and have fun!
Knitted on flat 2 needles and sewn up the sides.
Full support if needed - I am always willing to help.
Measurements: to fit cushion 41cm x 41cm/ 16in x 16in, (although slightly smaller and larger cushions may be suitable, as the cushion measures approx 38x36cm/15x14in unstretched.
