Can you please make something for my girls’ bedrooms? Of course, I can!

Sofie’s Cushion is the result of that.

The front and back side are rather plain but it’s all in the detail: the border in this case! It’s a big and squishy cushion in unicorn colours. I also made one with a soft mint green and black as dominant colours which make the cushion look completely different. Go ahead and play with your favourite colours! The pattern is perfect for using leftover yarn as well!

The pattern contains detailed instructions and colour schemes for both versions (using either seven colours or just four colours).

Aran weight yarn, approximately 900m.
