This bird cushion is made from two semi-circle shapes, and to make these you will need to know how to cast on additional stitches at the end of a row. I used the backward loop cast on method.

This is my original β€œBella the Birdie” cushion, which was designed to be knitted with a yarn kit that was sold with Let’s Get Crafting magazine. I knitted my cushion in stripes, but you can knit your cushion in one colour if you prefer.

To knit Bella you will need:

  • DK weight acrylic yarns.
  • A pair of 3.5mm (US 4) straight knitting needles
  • Polyester toy stuffing
  • Buttons for eyes
  • 4 ply yarn to add a tassel tail
