New sofa cushion under creation
After the creation of my first knit sofa cushion for my library, I have been busy looking for new cushions and blanket/plaid in green colours and shades, as I would like to change the colour scheme of the library from purple/red into mainly green. So a transformation can easily end up with costing a fortune, so I am on approachint this task with a cost optimisation view point !!! such as knitting sofa cushion myself or buying cushion second hand.
I have spend approx 510 DKK on yarn and 5 buttons. You can easily pay 600-700 DKK for a designer cushion. The yarn is from Rowan and consist of 50% woll, 25% alpaca and 25% viscose, The yarn looks like tweed with blue and whittish spots in the main colour of green.
The pattern for this cushion I have found in free magazine, where the front side of the cushion will be wicker pattern and the back-side will be in stockinette stitch.
