Let's Knit Design Your Own Cushion Challenge - Closing Date 25th January

Recommended Posts

I've just finished my second one will take some photo's tomorrow and I've 2 more designs now on my drawing board. :) I'm wondering if I'll have time to make them as well.

 

Just a quick question my first cushion the hearts one is a larger cushion but I notice the link says 30cm by 30cm which is what I've made for my second one and it seems a wee bit small.

 

Do we have to keep to the 30cm by 30cm or can our cushions be larger?

My latest cushion design as promised.

 

The two colours of yarn were my inspiration but I didn't want to do anything too Fair Isle in design or plain blocks of colour.

 

After some thought I decided on cables and blocks of the two colours.  I also didn't want to do loads and loads of sewing pieces together so I knitted it in one long piece. Then folded and sewed the two side seams.

Hi everyone - these all look fantastic so far!

 

The 30cm x 30cm rule is not too rigid, just as long as they are a standard-sized, square cushion.

 

Keep the designs coming - I will be making a gallery on Facebook later today, make sure you check it out!
