Throw and Cushion Cover in Deramores Vintage Chunky with Free Pattern (2012)
This fabulous kit contains 11 balls of Deramores Vintage Chunky - Chalk (001) to make the Small Throw and Cushion Cover – and the pattern Throw and Cushion Cover in Deramores Vintage Chunky with Free Pattern (2012) - which is free! The overall design has a strong Aran influence and features a beautiful braided cable worked over 9 stitches alternating with a climbing vine worked over 14 stitches against a reverse stocking stitch background, and the blanket has a garter stitch border. The blanket is knitted flat, but a circular needle is recommended due to the number of stitches required. If preferred, the cushion can be knitted using single pointed needles. The Small Throw measures approximately 130cm x 100cm (52” x 79”) and the Cushion is approximately 40cm x 40cm (16” x 16”). Knitted using a 100cm (40”) 6mm (UK size 4, US size 10) circular needle, you will also a cable needle and 5 buttons for the cushion cover. We are really proud of our own Vintage Chunky. It’s a wonderfully warm and hardwearing mixture of merino wool for softness and acrylic for practicality and is machine washable and can be tumble dried. Winner of Best Independent Yarn Brand at the British Knitting Awards 2013, 2014 and 2015. Please note: If you would like to make the Large Throw instead which is 130cm x 200cm (52” x 79”), it requires 16 balls of Deramores Vintage Chunky - Chalk (001) so you would need to purchase an additional 8 balls.
