You can never have too many cushions. Scattered over a comfy sofa they add a homely touch to any room, softening the look of a bare area and making it feel warm and welcoming.

The pattern includes five different looks, all from the same sequence of stitches, giving a co-ordinated set of cushions. Knit just one or two cushions to add to your existing collection, or all five for a brand-new look. The covers are easily removed as they are buttoned over the cushion pad underneath, making it easy to change the look in your room as you move from season to season.

The new version dated 13-July-2013 includes the set-up row that had been omitted at the start of the 2nd panel. This gives a clean line without any bi-colour purls when transitioning from the 1st panel.
