Great first Intarsia project.
Step-by-step Intarsia instructions are included in the pattern.

The cushion cover is knitted from the bottom up as one piece and you need to seam only on the sides --- designed for minimum seaming. 3 buttons are attached on the back side of cushion for security closure and makes it easy to remove the cover.

Bigger gauge - 12 sts / 4” is super quick to knit.

The suggested yarns are all doubled throughout except Spud & Chloe “Outer”. Please check the yardage carefully.

You have a choice to use a single yarn or doubled.
The doubled yarn makes a nice dense knitted fabric.

Single yarn - Chunky or Bulky yarn / Gauge 12sts /4”
Doubled yarn - Aran or Heavy worsted weight yarn

  • MC – With a single yarn 100 yards. With doubled yarn total 200 yards.
  • CC – With a single yarn 100 yards. With doubled yarn total 200 yards.
