Product Details

Skill Level - Beginner 

This is a PERFECT beginner's knitting project because: you will be able to hone a quality technique: Firstly, you'll cast on, and then get started with just one stitch, Knit, to create the Garter Stitch pattern on one side of the cushion. On the second side of the cushion you will learn the next stitch, Purl, to create the Stocking Stitch pattern. Then we mix up the two stitches to create the Moss Stitch pattern, and include buttonholes. Finally, you'll cast off, and sew up with mattress stitch.


Side 1: Casting on, and knit stitch 

Side 2: Knit stitch, knit, purl, and moss stitch, buttonholes, and casting off


We have videos for all these stitches on our How To videos page

Fisherman's rib scarf

Excellent service fast delivery. Love the wool nice and soft didn't take long to knit it. Will be ordering more soon


Pleased with how quickly the item arrived. Wool looks and feels lovely but it has been put away for a Christmas present so not knitted up yet!

Hi Suzanne

Thank you for your lovely review. Was it a christmas present for yourself? Did you start knitting straight away on Xmas day if it was? I really hope you, or the person you gave it to, enjoys the knitting and the wearing. Do share a photo when completed.x
