Well, I clearly need a different cushion pad, but I knitted this to try and use up the stash of Rowan Drift I had from an abandoned scarf project of Darling Daughter’s. The knitting took just an afternoon and evening and I think the “basket weave”-ish stitch pattern is particularly effective. Knitting on 13mm needles isn’t as easy as you’d think because they’re so big and unwieldly for little hands.
Anyway here are the details:
Pattern from Knitty Gritty: Knitting for the Absolute Beginner by Aneeta Patel, Published A&C Black, 2008
Yarn: Rowan Drift 100% Merino Wool in Nomad, Shade 00907. I think I bought the yarn from Deramores originally and this cushion cover required about 125g of yarn
Needles: 13mm wooden Knitpro needles from Twist in Woodbridge, Suffolk.
