In CreaCrafts’ magazine collection, Knit & Stitch Creative, you make a throw over a period of time, improving your knitting and crochet skills as you go along. But you don’t just make a throw – you make matching cushions too!

Our first cushion starts in Issue 24 and is knitted in our Grisaille yarn, a wonderfully soft bouclé fashion-type yarn. We decided to go with this cushion first after receiving extremely positive feedback on this yarn. Although the yarn may look tricky at first sight –  click here for top tips for dealing with hairy and fluffy yarn – it knits up beautifully into a super snuggly soft fabric.

The cushion is knitted in stocking stitch, so is simple to knit with effective colour changes.  It’s made up of bands of different colours – Mist (a bright white), Moss (a soft brown) and Cumulus (a dark grey), all which will complement your beautiful throw.
