All you need is love! 'love' Cushion, available now!


Are you looking for something new to brighten up your living space? Maybe you want the perfect gift for a loved one for Valentine's Day? Or you might possibly be thinking ahead to Mother's Day, and fancy knitting her a gift this year? The 'love' Cushion might be just the thing you're looking for!

Want to get your hands on a copy of the pattern? It’s available now on Ravelry* and PayHip, and you can get 20% off with the code LOVE until 11.59pm GMT, Thursday 4th February 2021.

The 'love' Cushion is a bright and bold addition to your living space, featuring the slogan 'love' across the middle. This pattern is perfect for Valentine's Day, or just for adding a cute touch to your sofa - after many months at home, it can't just be me who thinks their living room could do with a few extra colourful additions? 


The 'love' Cushion is knitted using the intarsia technique, which give a great finish without the bulk of stranded colourwork. I've been really nerdy about the buttonhole placement on this design, spacing the buttonholes perfectly long a custom rib for an amazing finish.

The pillow is knitted in a single strip, starting with a ribbed section, then some stocking stitch for the back, the front is knitted in stocking stitch with the word 'love' incorporated using intarsia. The back is then knitted, finishing with a ribbed section featuring buttonholes to fasten the pillow cover. The side seams are joined using mattress stitch. The cushion cover is the perfect size for a standard IKEA long cushion [65 cm x 40 cm (25.5 in x 16 in)].

Not a fan of charts? The intarsia portion of the pattern is provided as both a chart and written out in full, so this pattern is perfect for you whether you like charts or written instructions!

Want to get your hands on a copy of the pattern? It’s available now on Ravelry* and PayHip, and you can get 20% off with the code LOVE until 11.59pm GMT, Thursday 4th February 2021.
