So here’s a new set of cushions you can start now ready for the coming winter. They are the Rare Earth Cushions and are perfect both for your own home or as a gift for a friend.
I chose rich natural tones for my set of cushions – the colours I was seeing as the first snows of winter coated the bare branches of aspen and oak outside my window. However, they would work in other colour combination too… in bright zingy tones to suit a child's playroom or in reds and greens for a seasonal holiday look.
If you’re a hand spinner, then you can also use handspun yarn of course! I still had lots of yarn left over from working my Rare Earth Rug that I wrote about here, so was able to use that to make a beautifully co-ordinating set.
The lightest yarn is a wonderfully creamy colour, the darkest shade is a rich chocolate brown/black and then the middle three colours blend in-between to give a gradation of tones.
The covers are easily removed as they are buttoned over the cushion pad underneath, making it easy to change the look in your room as you move from season to season.
Until next time – Happy Knitting!
