Oonagh Knitted Cushion Cover:

I designed this cushion cover for a workshop trip to the west of Ireland. As the focus of the trip was the knitting heritage of the Aran Islands, that sit at the mouth of Galway Bay, I chose to use traditional cable stitch designs and textural patterns. To give the cover a more contemporary twist, and because I adore a bit of bling, I also added some beads using a slip-stitch method that enables the beads to create a cross pattern.

I used traditional cream yarns as the shade for the first cushion cover with gold and green beads to echo the national colours of Ireland, but I had a feeling it would also look great in red with silver beads, so I set about creating a new version especially for the festive season.

I really love the way the silver beads sparkle on this cover.

Streymoy Knitted Cushion Cover:

I designed this project for a workshop group who joined me on a Stitchtopia cruise around the UK and over to the Faroe Islands in 2018. I based this design on traditional Faroese fairisle designs, where 2 shades of yarn are used in each round.

The design uses 2 main shades (grey and cream) and 3 contrast shades. The cover is worked in the round and is fastened with 7 buttons.

Gladsmuir Crochet Cushion:

I love putting the decorations on the tree or around the house at Christmas time. I

I originally designed this crochet cushion cover for the Edinburgh Yarn Festival Publication in 2017. The cover is predominantly made in shades of grey, but has turquoise and chartreuse highlights. I think it would look lovely in multicolours and would make a great stash buster too!

The cover uses a few different crochet techniques including block crochet and wave stitches. The cover is made from motifs that are worked from corner to corner and then joined together using double crochet and chain stitches. the back cover is different from the front.

Norwegian Wood Knitted Cushion Cover:

I designed this hand knitted fairisle cushion cover a few years ago for a trip I tutored on a cruise ship around the coast of Norway. I looked at traditional Norwegian patterns and added beads to areas to create more interest.

The cushion is made in 3 pieces and is not worked in the round.

 

Nordnorge Knitted Bag:

I designed this hand knitted fairisle bag a few years ago for a trip I tutored on a cruise ship around the coast of Norway. I looked at traditional Norwegian patterns and added beads to areas to create more interest.

The bag is knitted in the round and the pattern includes instructions on how to make a Dorset button.
