ARAN MIX Cushion Cover

A joy to the eye, and a masterpiece to show off.
So squishy and cozy in your favorite snuggling place!
The sample is made in Aran wool, make it in cotton for the summer.
The cover is buttoned in side, easy to remove for cleaning.

The five different stitch patterns used to create the front and back of this cover, are inspired by the famous Aran patterns.
The Arans are a group of islands west of the Irish coast. Their knitted cables, braids and textured patterns have become legendary. Love them!

The 5 patterns used in the cover are:

  1. Pebble pattern.
  2. Fisherman’s Rib.
  3. Seed stitch.
  4. Reversed single crochet Cable.
  5. Knit-stitch Cable.

All the different patterns are the result of successful swatching.

Swatching for new patterns, I always make large pieces. In order to get a good idea about the gauge and the planned project.
If I’m real happy with a swatch, it ends up as a cushion cover. Never enough pillows, and great as gifts!
I love to have different color and pattern on the front and back. It’s like two cushions in one, to be turned according to mood and season!

Good luck, enjoy every new stitch you are about to learn in this pattern!
Mix and match them into new combinations and colors.
Each pattern creates great hats, slippers, sweaters, blankets, and so on!
