My super frivolous, happy feather boa cushion is part of the unique collection of patterns in this quarter’s issue. The cushion is made with Vanilla and splashes of Aqua and Pear. A feather boa trim adds a cheeky touch!


The cushion is made with rows of dc’s and finished off with top stitching (surface crochet). This super simple, yet highly effective technique gives you the opportunity to play around with colour and will encourage you to try different combinations, creating fabric that is uniquely different.

Also in this issue, and interview with the glitter knitter from the States, Steven Be. I was one of a few fellow yarnies that were lucky enough to get an invitation to visit him in his penthouse during his recent visit to South Africa. It was such an inspirational afternoon! Steven encouraged me to think differently about how I view yarn and design. The memories of this afternoon will linger for a long time still.
