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:
