Charleston Cushions -free knitting pattern
These vibrant cushions and bolster use short-row shaping for a striking effect. OUR DELIGHTFUL cushions and bolster,
cleverly worked using short – row shaping, have been designed by Belinda Boadenand were inspired by the gardens of Charleston
House in Sussex, the home of the Bloomsbury Group of artists in the 1920s.The colour ways look wonderful on their
own and also coordinate beautifully with each other, so you could try your hand at one cushion for your sofa or the whole set.
. “I wanted to play around with short rows and produce a pattern that people would enjoy knitting,” says Belinda, “it’s not.so im portant with this design to worry about following the pattern exactly – it really won’t matter if you do one wrap – and -turn one or two stitches before you should, or if you do a stitch the wrong colour in the Fait Isle!”
Belinda has used Jawoll Superwasli yarn from Lang . “ It’s very good for Fair Isle as it’s quite springy and evens out beautifull
when steamed, also it’s machine-washable which is ideal for cushions she says, “The front piece of the cushion doesn’t
come out square due to the short rows, but it really doesn’t matter ones it is sewn up and stuffed with a pad,” adds Belinda.
