THIS CUSHION cover is worked in three
long sections, each featuring a different
stripe pattern. The three sections are
joined together, then the piece is folded and
seamed, before stitches are picked up along
one edge to work the button band. It is
knitted in Scheepjes Merino Soft, a blend of
merino wool, microfibre and acrylic. It’s a
great-value yarn that’s machine-washable
and comes in a huge choice of shades. We
will bring you the instructions to make
a matching throw in Issue 116.
