We all wish we could slow down occasionally, and sometimes knitting provides the only opportunity to sit and have a few moments to ourselves. Tackling a technique such as colourwork definitely calls for quiet, so use that as your excuse with this project!
If you haven’t tried Fair Isle before, this project includes a step-by-step guide. The muted tones and sweet floral Fair Isle design of Mary Henderson’s cushion makes us think of cottages, wood-smoke and plenty of peace and quiet. Even if you can’t claim those things for yourself, by knitting this bolster cushion you can bring a sense of it into your home, wherever that may be.
Before knitting the bolster ends, your work will measure 45x68cm. You'll find our full list of knitting abbreviations here.
