‘To make a prairie it takes a clover and one bee, One clover, and a bee, And revery. The revery alone will do, If bees are few.’ - Emily Dickinson
This is a pattern for a cushion worked from the bottom up and in the round with a steek. Instructions are given for a fabric backed cushion cover for a 24 x 16 inches/61 x 40.5 cm pillow form, however charts for 16 x 16 inches/40.5 x 40.5 cm and 18 x 18 inches/46 x 46 cm are included. This pattern has instructions for hand and machine sewing.
approx. yarn amounts: MC - 250.0 yards (228.6 meters) CC - 250.0 yards (228.6 meters) In addition to yarn, you will need approx. 0.5 yd/m, and pillow form.
(If you are knitting the cushion back, rather than using fabric, and working the motif twice, you will need double the yarn. Instructions are not included for this method, but it could be easily done. similarly to the fabric backed cushion cover).
