Whatever the weather outside, these easy-to-make Weather Cushions will keep grey days bright, fun and cheery.

Designed by Amanda Berry @fluffandfuzz, the cushions are knitted flat (not in the round). The bright rainbow is worked in acrylic DK yarns on a circular needle to make it easier to handle a large number of sts. The fluffy clouds are knitted on single pointed needles in a nylon boucle yarn to make the cuddly texture. One cloud has dangly raindrops, and the other a bolt of yellow lightening.

A pair of 3.75mm straight single pointed knitting needles (US 5), a pair of 5.5mm straight single pointed knitting needles (US 9), and a 3.75mm circular knitting needle (US 5)

Sirdar Hayfield Bonus DK in rainbow colours; double knitting/light worsted weight; 100% acrylic; one 100g/280m skein in each colour. Sirdar Snuggly Bunny boucle yarn in white and grey; 100% nylon; two 50g/90m skeins per cloud.

A darning or tapestry needle for seaming, toy filling, toy safety eyes and stitch markers.

One size only - rainbow 23cm wide, clouds 30cm wide.

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