USING PLEASINGLY woolly, tweedy yarns from New Lanark Mills, this cushion cover has a rustic feel. Designed by Mary Henderson, it has a slip stitch colourwork pattern which creates ribbons of blue weaving through a green background. The buttoned back panels are worked in moss stitch, and the cushion is finished with a knitted-on i-cord edging.
