This pattern contains two complete cushion cover designs.
The combination of bold garter stitch and super chunky ribbon yarn creates a beautiful look and soft feel to these cushions.
The Candy Stripe design combines three colours in diagonal lines which encircle the cushion. Garter stitch and basic shaping are used to create an interesting textural dimension to the cover.
The striking pattern of the Simple Squares design is created by simple decreases which create a diagonal feature across the cover, and which links the border and inner square detail.
These patterns are easy for beginner knitters, whilst remaining interesting for more skilled knitters to enjoy.

My sketch book is always full of new toy and doll characters waiting to be created in yarn.
I love bringing them to life with my knitting needles!
I spend my days in my sunny studio with my Siamese cat for company.
Surrounded by colourful yarn, my hands are busy clicking the knitting needles or sketching current ideas.
I create dolls and toys to celebrate the seasons and important times in people’s lives, Christmas and Easter- New babies and snuggly tired toddlers.
In between creating new dolls and teddy bears. I’ve created patterns for knitting magazines and worked with retail firms to create knitting kits.
I started out selling my knitted and felted bags at Craft and Design events where I enjoyed meeting other knitting enthusiasts.
It was these knitters who convinced me to publish my patterns for others to enjoy.
