the wedding present…

Hello everyone!

I’ve completed the second cushion of the set for the wedding present for my co-worker.

Here’s the second cushion using the same colours as in the first cushion – chocolate brown and cream.  I created the “heathered” look by knitting with the 2 coloured strands at the same time.

For this cushion cover I used just your basic garter stitch (knitting every row).  I used US size 9 needles and casted on 60 stitches of a DK weight yarn.  I knit with the two colours of yarn at the same time and continued until the piece measured 30″ in length.  The finished cushion is 16″X16″.

Here are the two cushions together.

Well off to find a box to put them in so I can wrap them up and bring them to work with me tomorrow!

Happy knitting!
