I love this cushion cover. It took MANY hours of trial and error to get it right!
Here is the back story. I had been asked by many knitters if I could create a multi coloured cushion cover for them like the beautiful Catherine wheel stitch crochet cover kit. So I tried many different stitch samples in my double knit cotton but because cotton is so smooth the samples all looked too holey, floppy and basically not very presentable! I had to find a new yarn, one with a 'haze' and one that would work well with a detailed stitch pattern. By the way haze is when a yarn when held up to the light has a slight fuzziness to it. I wanted something with some wool in it but not 100% as this would make it more expensive and obviously something with a good choice of colours because a yarn dyer I am not. After much searching I found a lovely wool and acrylic double knitting, and this is what I have used.
Once you have completed the 16 row repeat you will get a sense of how the pattern works. Don't get caught out like I did on row 1 of the pale grey and start knitting across the whole row instead of sl2! Although I have listed it as an Intermediate pattern the technical skills required are not very high.
