This Mrs Claus Cushion is a great way to practice your intarsia colour-work, and also uses some embroidery to add the trim to the cape.

Designed by Amanda Berry @fluffandfuzz, the cushion is knitted in acrylic DK yarns on single pointed needles (not in the round). The cushion is made from 3 pieces, one front, one back, and the hair bun is knitted separately and sewn on to the top. The neck tie is a single crochet chain worked on a crochet hook. You will also need a bag of toy filling to stuff the cushion and buttons for eyes.

A pair of 3.5mm straight single pointed knitting needles (US 4)

DK; double knitting/light worsted weight; 100% acrylic; up to 50g in each colour

Tapestry needle, toy filling, buttons for eyes, and a crochet hook.

One size only - 35cm tall.

For confident beginners and above, other techniques used include casting on and off, knits, purls, increases and decreases, and seaming to finish.
