Aran Leaf Cushion Pattern


You might think that because I like making things my house is beautifully furnished. It is not, because I imagine, like other people, life gets busy and things just get in the way. But I did decide this year to get to grips with sorting out a few of the more shabby areas.

So with that in mind I have made another cushion cover from my Aran Leaf Design. I picked this lovely blue, called denim, as I have plans to reupholster one of my armchairs, and I think this will look gorgeous on it. Quite a daunting project, but I am going to give it a go.


So you can find this Aran Leaf Cushion Pattern in ravelry, or Craftsy. It is really quite an easy and quick knit. The wool is thick Aran, and it is knitted on 6mm needles. It may look a bit like cable, but is a combination of increasing and decreasing to make the leaves.

Here is the original cream version of the Leaf Cushion

I also had a lot of positive comments on my Tree Cushion and I am still working on making a chart for the pattern for this. And I have an idea for another cushion, though that is still just in my head.

  5. What a great idea! They looks so pretty! I have essentially given up on having a well decorated home and have gone with well lived in instead. I figure once my littles are much larger, then we can go through and update everything. But, until I can figure out how to not get them to put stickers on the floor or accidentally write on the walls and furniture...I will stay with what I have :-)

  12. Gorgeous, your knit pillows are really inspiring me! thanks so much for sharing on craft schooling sunday! Oh and by the way, the best forumula for a house that looks "decorated" is to paint it all white, declutter and remove as much as possible.....ahhhhhh! Oh and then fill with plants of course!
