STREYMOY KNITTED CUSHION COVER
4 Page printed brochure pattern. Not available as a download only option.
I designed this project for a workshop group who joined me on a Stitchtopia cruise around the UK and over to the Faroe Islands in 2018. I based this design on traditional Faroese fairisle designs, where 2 shades of yarn are used in each round.
The design uses 2 main shades (grey and cream) and 3 contrast shades. The cover is worked in the round and is fastened with 7 buttons.
