This cushion cover is created with a colourwork knitting pattern, using three contrasting yarn colours you’ll knit an animal print design that is sure to make a huge statement in your home.

If you’ve never done colourwork before, it is straightforward to follow – we’ve done a traditional written pattern as well as a visual grid to follow, which are both included in the download. Note that when choosing your yarn colours for the cushion, we’ve discovered it is better to have one lighter colour as the background so that the ‘spots’ really pop!

Once you’ve tried this type of chunky colourwork, you’ll be addicted!
