Waffly weavy good cushion cover
Looks great, but so so simple to knit!!
I used Robin Aran Yarn, any Aran weight yarn will work well :D
Using 4.5 mm circular needles, cast on 84 stitches
Knit 10 rows in garter stitch.
Next row knit 2, purl 10, knit 10 to last 2 stitches, purl 2.
Repeat a further 9 times
Next row Purl2, Knit 10, Purl 10 to last 2 stitches , knit 2
repeat a further 9 times
These 20 rows form the pattern, repeat a further 9 times (200 rows in total)
Knit 15 rows garter stitch. Cast off
To make up, with rectangle, shortest side going horizontal, thinner edge up 2/3 of total piece, fold top 1/3 down tucking garter stitch edge under the lower garter stitch edge. Sew seams
Turn right way out, and secure top edge with velcro or similar. To decorate add buttons to outer side.
I actually made button holes in lower edge, but forgot to write the instructions an how to do them,and now cannot remember how to do them!! Feel free to adapt lol
