Go wild with excitement with this incredible leopard print cushion knitting kit!
Make an incredible statement in your home with this leopard print cushion - and have the pride of knowing you've created it! Use a colour combination to suit your interior style, or give as a gift to a creative, craft-loving friend. There's nothing quite like a knitted animal print!
Everything you need to create this statement cushion cover is included in this beautifully packaged knitting kit.
Choose from 25 colours of my super chunky yarn to make this cushion - you'll need to choose three colours; one for the background (top tip: it's better to have a lighter colour here so the 'spots' really pop!) and then two other colours for the spot centres and spot outlines. You'll find a handy colour chart in the images to reference, including various sample examples to (hopefully!) make your choice a bit easier...!
The cushion is made using colourwork knitting - where you use all three colours to create the pattern. Don't worry - it's not too tricky! I've included a traditional pattern as well as a visual grid to refer to while you're knitting.
Included in the kit is:
1 x 200g ball of 100% merino super chunky yarn (background colour)
2 x 50g balls of 100% merino super chunky yarn (spot colours)
