Squares Cushion Cover - Knitting Pattern - 41cm,16in sq.
A lovely, chunky cushion cover with a textured design of squares made from knit stitches and purl stitches. Super-chunky/super-bulky yarn makes for an up-to-date and super-quick knit.
The pattern is easy – basic skills are needed plus kfb - knit into the front and back of a st before taking it off the needle.
This is an envelope cushion cover with decorative buttons and buttonholes on the front, with an option of a buttonless opening, if you prefer. Or turn it round for a simpler look.
Instructions are in English with British/US terms, line by line. There are photos to help with the sewing up. Knitted flat on 2 needles and sewn up the sides.
Full support if needed - I am always willing to help.

The Lonely Sea - Heather Corcoran
I have a bag that say ' I knit therefore I am' - sums me up perfectly! I love to knit and love to design! I have knitted for years, and made and sold literally hundreds of owl gloves and fingerless mitts on-line. About 5 years ago, I decided to give designing and writing patterns a go, and I absolutely love it! The whole process is absolutely captivating, and I love to see other knitters' projects made from my patterns. My beautiful cavvy, Honey, is my constant companion, and she sleeps next to me on the settee while I knit. You can also find me on Facebook - https://www.facebook.com/thelonelyseapatterns/
