Pomona Cushion – by Sonja Bargielowska
This cushion is made by knitting one large Garter Stitch log cabin square, which is created modularly from the centre out. Once this square is finished, you will add the back pieces to two sides and then seam it up to create the cushion shape.
The pattern includes instructions on how to spit (wet) splice your ends together neatly when changing colour to minimize the number of ends that need weaving in.
