Notes:
- Throw and all cushions can be done with or without beads.

  • Each cushion has a different combination of the four different square patterns. This accounts for the differences in bead quantity requirements.

  • Beads are strung onto the yarn and worked as the piece is knit.

  • Rowan used Debbie Abrahams Size 6 knitting beads for this project. Other beads in the same size can be used, but please make sure that the edges are smoothed so as to not abrade the yarn when knitting. www.debbieabrahamsbeads.co.uk
