I love this cushion cover. It took many attempts to get it right but really happy with it now! 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! I had to find a new yarn one with 'haze'. 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 as a yarn dyer I am NOT! After much searching I found a lovely wool and acrylic double knitting from Sirdar, and this is what I have used.
