These pillows are quick knits. To make them your own, all you have to do is select a favourite stitch pattern, make a swatch to find your tension, then determine the number of stitches you need to cast on for the width of your cushion pad. The next step? Just keep knitting and stretching your knitted piece over your pad, cast off when it’s the right length, and work another piece – or find a piece of fabric – for the back. Then sew the two pieces together, leaving a space to insert your cushion pad, and close it up. Add an optional attached i-cord, and you’re good to go!
