Wild Child Cushion

We’re completely wild with excitement to launch this cushion kit - using three contrasting colours in a simple colour work pattern, the rows build up quickly to create a beautiful leopard print design.

With inspiration taken from our very own hand painted studio wall, we’ve created an incredible statement piece for you to knit up - choose your own colours and off you go! Keep it traditional or go wild with brights - our top tip though, it’s worth having one lighter colour so that the ‘spots’ really stand out. We actually can’t wait to see which colour combo’s you go for!!

Everything you need to make this incredible cushion is included in the kit - and if you’ve never done colour work before then this is quite a straightforward pattern to follow, with a handy visual grid to refer to.
