Rare Earth Cushions
You can never have too many cushions. Scattered over a comfy sofa they add a homely touch to any room, softening the look of a bare area and making it feel warm and welcoming.
The pattern includes five different looks giving a co-ordinated set of cushions. Knit just one or two cushions to add to your existing collection, or all five for a brand-new look. The covers are easily removed so it is easy to change the look in your room as you move from season to season.
Please see below for more information about this pattern.
NB: A pattern for a co-ordinating rug, the Rare Earth Rug, is available separately.
