My design ideas and advice: This cushion uses the honeycombe cable and it reminds me of the stream at Malham Cove that meanders and flows down from the cove through the fields where the mule sheep live. Relax into the knitting and with every stitch a sense of calm will wash over you, transporting you to the tranquil Yorkshire Dales. Once you’ve finished your knitting, you’ll have a cushion that reminds you of the beautiful countryside and the fields where the sheep graze peacefully.
