Jane designed these two cushion covers to match the Fruit Garden blanket. The Kelmscott cover matches Recipe 1, Parchment & Caramel and Melsetter matches Recipe 2, Night & Dusk.

You will need to download the Fruit Garden motif patterns from the Stylecraft Yarns website to use in conjunction with the cushion cover instructions.

The cushions are designed so that you can use up some of the left over yarns from your CAL projects. The yarn listings below show what you will need:
