The Rowan Vildis Cushion Kit includes the PDF pattern download and all the Softyak DK yarn needed to knit a colorful cushion cover.
Arne and Carlos are known for their innovative use of color and Norwegian-inspired colorwork, and the Vildis Cushion covers combine both of those things beautifully. Both cushion covers incorporate the softness and heathered shades of Softyak DK, making them a delight to knit and comfortable to use as well. Version A combines both intarsia and Fair Isle stranded knitting in a large-scale floral motif while Version B sports an allover geometric pattern knit in Fair Isle stranded knitting alone. Each cover is knit flat in pieces and seamed. Colorwork patterns are charted only.
