12 Days of Christmas – Day 9 – Knitted Cushion

As a quick knit, there is nothing easier than super chunky yarn.  Here is a cushion that knits quickly, looks cool, and is shaped like a cracker or a bon-bon.

Cast on 26 stitches.

Row 1:  Purl 10, Cable 2 forward (Place 2 stitches on a cable needle to the front, knit 2, then knit the stitches from the cable needle), knit 2, purl 10

Row 2:  Knit 10, purl 6, Knit 10

Row 3:  Purl 10, Knit 2, Cable 2 backward (Place 2 stitches on a cable needle to the back, knit 2, then knit the stitches from the cable needle), purl 10

Row 4: Knit 10, purl 6, Knit 10

Repeat these rows until you have a square, or until you have used all the yarn.

Cast off.

Cut a square of fabric the same size as the knitting.  Gather the ends as shown.  Stitch up the side seam, leaving a hole to stuff.  Turn in the right way. Stuff the cushion, and sew up the hole.

Take your knitted piece.  Sew up the side seam of the cushion.  With a length of yarn thread through the ends about 5 stitches from the edge and gather creating the ends of the bon-bon shape.
