Here is the back story to this cover. 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 woolly yarn. The yarn used for this sample is a 50/50 wool/acrylic blend which works perfectly.
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 however it doesn't require high technical skills.
