INSTRUCTIONS

MEASUREMENTS

45cm wide x 45cm long (approx.)

Note - RS of work is facing at all times. Working yarns are held behind sts throughout. Loops from working yarn are always pulled through sts from back to front of work. Carry yarn when not in use, up side edge of work until required again.

CUSHION

Using C1, cut base of loops so there is a 15cm length of yarn before loops beg. Count 30 loops for foundation row, noting yarn end is at far left and all loops are facing upwards.

Using C1, 1st row (RS) - Working from right to left, cross 30th loop in front of 29th loop. Pull next loop from working yarn from behind through 29th loop. Pull next loop from working yarn from behind through 30th loop, cross next loop of foundation row in front of 2nd loop on foundation row, holding crossed loops in position, pull next loop from working yarn from behind through next loop, then pull next loop from working yarn from behind through subsequent loop, rep from to end of row  30 sts.

DO NOT TURN WORK.

2nd row - Working from left to right, skip first loop of row just worked. Cross 2nd loop

in front of 3rd loop. Holding crossed loops in position, pull loop from working yarn from behind through 3rd loop, pull next loop from working yarn from behind through 2nd loop, cross next 2 loops as before, holding crossed loops in position, pull next loop from working yarn through next loop, pull next loop from working yarn from behind through subsequent loop, rep from to last loop. Leave last loop unworked.

DO NOT TURN WORK.

Using C2, 3rd row - Working from right to left, cross unworked loop in front of 2nd loop. Holding crossed loops in position, pull next loop from working yarn from behind through 2nd loop, pull next loop from behind through first unworked loop, cross next 2 loops, holding crossed loops in position, pull next loop from working yarn from behind through next loop, pull next loop from working yarn from behind through subsequent loop, rep from to end.

4th row - As 2nd row.

DO NOT TURN WORK

Rows 1 to 4 incl form stripe patt for rem.

Cont in stripe patt until work measures approx 80cm from beg, ending with a complete stripe and leaving enough yarn, plus approx 15cm for cast off row.

Next row (cast off) - Using same colour, work 2 loops, pass the second loop through the first loop from front to back leaving a single loop. Work the next loop and rep the process. Cont to last loop, pass the yarn end through the last loop and pull to fasten. Cut base of loops on rem length of yarn.

FINISHING

DO NOT PRESS. Fold Cushion in half to form a square. Sew in ends. Cut base of loops on a length of rem yarn to form a continuous straight length of yarn. Using this yarn and half mattress st, join side edges tog to form a pocket. Place cushion insert inside and using half mattress st, close rem seam.
