NORWEGIAN WOOD KNITTED CUSHION COVER
8 Page printed brochure pattern. .
Pattern only available in UK terminology.
I designed this hand knitted fairisle cushion cover a few years ago for a trip I tutored on a cruise ship around the coast of Norway. I looked at traditional Norwegian patterns and added beads to areas to create more interest.
The cushion is made in 3 pieces and is not worked in the round.
