ONLINE BOOK: How
to Become an "Expert Knitter"
Dream of a vacation in Japan, and knit two beautiful
cushions, inspired by Japanese fabric designs. Add three dimensional
crochet cherry blossoms. Easy to knit, and if you cant crochet, ask
a kind friend.

and normally much quicker, but please allow for time zone
Choose 12 ply or
chunky weight for all sections. A slight variation in thickness is
not critical. The main aim is to find three yarns, colours A, B and
C, for the cushion base that will attain the correct tension as
stated in the instructions. Find a fancy yarn that will look like
part of a Japanese fabric design for Colour C.
I used a thick, rough silk yarn for
Colour A, a thick silk ribbon yarn for Colour B, a marvellous
Filatura Di Crosa yarn called Giardino (I think thats the right
spelling) for the fancy panel, and other yarns of the right colours
from my collection. You can use anything that will be the correct
tension. If your yarns are thin, use 2 together.
Colour A : back of cushion and
part of front
6 x 50gr balls
Colour B: main contrast colour on
2 x 50gr balls
Colour C: fancy yarn for smaller
1 x 50gr ball
Colour D: blossoms
1 x 50gr ball
Colour E: branches and twigs
1 x 50gr ball
Colour F: flower stamens
1 pr 5.00mm (US 8, UK 6) knitting
5.00mm (US H, UK 6) crochet hook
Blunt and pointed large wool sewing needles
2 x 40cm or 16in cushion inserts
These cushions are 40 cms or 16 ins square. However, if you want a
smaller size, use a thinner yarn and smaller knitting needles and
crochet hook. You will need two balls less of Colour A and only 1
ball of Colour B. Buy the inserts after you have finished the
knitting, then you will know the correct size to use.
