Pomona Cushion Kit
We now offer handy kits of this pattern. All kits include enough yarn to make this glorious cushion along with the pattern, a limited edition button badge and a fab project bag to keep it all safe. Happy knitting!
The Pomona Cushion pattern is designed by our very own Sonja Bargielowska. Click here if you’d like to buy just the pattern, without the yarn.
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.
