My Bolster Cushion for Rowan and a ‘Knitted’ Painting!

Just before Christmas I was busily working on a design for Rowan using their new yarn, Pure Wool Worsted …….which many of you are waiting to use for the Martin Storey knit a long (details still to come in the next week or so).

The remit, which was given to me and my fellow Rowan Ambassadors, was to design a home-ware accessory using a maximum of 3 balls of yarn. After submitting my design, Wheel Barrel, I’m proud to say that it was accepted and published by Rowan Yarns along with the other Ambassadors designs in the Pure Wool Worsted Home Décor Online Collection. This collection is a free download for all Rowan Subscribers and Rowan Members. (See links below).

Wheel Barrel, shown below, is a bolster style cushion using 3 balls of Rowan Pure Wool Worsted, a wonderful soft machine washable yarn which is available in fifty different shades. I used Ivory (101), Umber (110) and Cardinal (136). The cushion cover is knitted in the round using a textured stitch and is finished with a button closure at each end. My pattern also includes instructions on how to make the cushion pad.

CushionC_sI have also designed another home-ware item using Rowan Pure Wool Worsted: a ‘knitted’ painting called Fibonacci Octad shown below.

  1. I have always loved Martin Storey’s designs. Please add me to the list for the KAL. I’m glad I heard about it in time to participate!

    • Me neither Eva! I’m glad in a way that it’s been put back a few weeks as it’s given me a chance to get all my knitting projects finished so that I will be ready to go by the end of March!

  2. Love your framed knitted art. What a fabulous idea! I’m both a knitter and an art teacher so I’m particularly looking forward to knitting this up. Thanks in advance for the pattern!

    • Hi Chris, I’ll be emailing my KAL interested subscribers in the next two or three weeks so if you are a subscriber you’ll receive an email. Thanks for your reply!

  5. How unique! Isn’t funny how your creative mind sometimes doesn’t step outside, outside of the box? Even though I have lace curtains and have seen lace framed, I never thought of displaying my knitting like this. It’s lovely, as is your wheel barrel! Thank you for the ideas…..

  6. Your “painting” is awesome. Please could I have the pattern so that I can display my knitting in such a unique way. Thanks
