This puppy cushion is knitted in a fleecy snuggly yarn to make an extra cuddly cushion.

THE PATTERN INCLUDES: Row numbers for each step so you don’t lose your place, instructions for making the cushion and photos, a list of abbreviations and explanation of some techniques, a materials list and recommended yarns. The pattern is 3 pages and written in English.

TECHNIQUES: All pieces are knitted flat (back and forth) on a pair of straight knitting needles. You will need to cast on and off, knit, purl, work a kfb increase and a k2tog decrease, and sew seams.

  • Chunky weight fleecy yarn for the dog
