Chunky Fairisle Cushion

Published a new knitting pattern on my Littletheorem website today.

The imaginatively named “Chunky Fairisle Cushion” pattern is available for free on the Littletheorem Knits website and on Ravelry.

I cheated a little to avoid a jog in the round, so this is perhaps a pattern that fairisle purists should avoid. Rather than steeking, I didn’t knot new colours to old as I knitted, but knotted them all up pretty firmly at the end to cinch it all together. I also (and this was very naughty) didn’t weave in the fifty odd loose ends, but just trimmed the knots and left them inside the cushion. Please feel free to back away from this pattern in horror, but I think it all looks ok, and for time-poor knitters it’ll certainly do the job!

Here’s some more pictures!
