Euclidean is knit flat in three pieces and joined together to make a reversible cushion with a button band running along the back. The beautiful natural shades of the undyed yarn soften the geometric design, giving the cushion a calm, balanced look.

Size
38cm 15in square

Skills
Casting on, knit, purl, stranded colourwork, working from a chart, casting off

Gauge
16 sts and 19 rows to 10cm 4in over stranded colourwork using 5.5mm needles, after washing and blocking 

Yarn
The Island Wool Company Snældon 5ply (100% wool, 150m 164yds per 100g skein)
Yarn A: Charcoal 1 x 100g skein
Yarn B: Fleece White 1 x 100g skein
Yarn C: Driftwood ½ x 100g skein
Yarn D: Seagull ½ x 100g skein
Yarn C and yarn D use less than half of the 100g skein so for a different colour choice, a 50g skein of dyed Snaeldon 5ply yarn should be sufficient.
