Snowflake Cushion Cover – Project Kit
Lizzie from Neli Handmade has designed for us this festive Snowflake Cushion Cover. This beautiful design uses a cold colour pallet to echo the temperatures for this time of year.
Your kit will arrive beautifully presented in a recyclable box, and will contain six balls of Blacker Swan DK. Our photographs show the cushion knitted in three colours: 4 Pale Maiden, 1 Sky Grey and 1 Dusty Miller. The pattern can also be knitted in 2 colours, in which case you will need 4 balls of your main shade and 2 of the contrast snowflake.
Knitted in Blacker Swan DK, which is so cosy and warm, it is ideal to use for a comforting ‘snuggle’ on your sofa that will bring joy to those cold winter days. These eye-catching cushions can be enjoyed either by yourself or for a present to give to others.
Lizzie says she made her dear Mum a cushion for her 80th birthday, which she always has it to rest against in her chair. The love that has gone into creating this makes it a very special gift., which Lizzie wanted to pass this joy on to others…
The finished cushion is 30×30 cm or 12×12 inches, and has an envelope opening.
You will also need 1 pair of 4mm (UK8 USA6) knitting needles, 2 rubbers bands, scission and a wool needle (for finishing).
24 stitches x 36 rows for a 10cm/4inch square, using 4mm needles.
