Colour Block Cushion Cover PDF Knitting Pattern.
Knit this colour block cushion cover, using our downloadable PDF knitting pattern.

This cushion cover is a lovely item to knit. The colour changes make knitting the cushion cover a lot more interesting than standard garter stitch. It adds a whole load of sparkle to otherwise plain old knit stitch! We loved making it, and hope that you do too!

Your pattern uses the garter stitch intarsia method (instructions on this technique are in the pattern). Intarsia is a great way of knitting something in one piece, as there are no squares to sew up (except for the front and back!), and it creates seamless vertical colour joins. It’s all about right and wrong side, and if you get stuck, as usual, we’re here to help! And because garter stitch creates a wonderfully thick spongy fabric, it’s ideal for home furnishings.

We used DROPS Alaska yarn, which is a dense 100% wool aran weight yarn, available in some really wonderful shades. It’s not a washable yarn, but because of the natural properties of wool, it shouldn’t need anything more than a very rare hand wash. Other Aran weight yarns may be used (suggested alternatives are listed on the pattern). Results may vary if substitutes are used.

Additional policies

Once you order your hand made item, we place an order for yarn. This takes a day or two to arrive. We then hand knit your item, which can take a long time, depending upon the complexity of the item you have chosen. Once the item has been made, it requires assembly, and in many cases (garments), the item will be wet blocked, where it is laundered, and pinned onto boards to dry. Only once the item has been finished to our high standards, will it be dispatched to you.

Our products are unique, quality, hand made items, and are not mass produced, machine made, or imported. Whilst we will make every attempt to ensure your item is dispatched promptly, we ask for your patience. And should you need the item in a hurry, we will discuss the viability with you.

We cannot be held responsible for external postal services. Post to the US takes a minimum of 7 working days. The package, must go through US customs, and delays may be experienced. Should your item not arrive within the expected time, please contact us straight away, and we will do our upmost to rectify the situation to your satisfaction.
