Where The Heart Is

Faux Fair Isle cushion

This gorgeous cushion is perfect to keep for yourself, give to a loved one or even make as a housewarming gift for a couple moving in together.
You might think this looks like a project for experienced knitters only, but I have used a cunning technique to add lots of colours without lots of work. This complex-looking pattern is achieved simply by knitting with one self-patterning yarn and one solid colour yarn using the fair isle method.
