The Frensham Cushion Cover
Hand knit your own cushion cover or decorative pillow cover! This design was inspired by the sunshine shimmering on the grey sand of my local Frensham Common in England. Popular with the early 1900's as a summer day out of London by the lakes. It's still a massively popular day out in the south of United Kingdom today.
This design is double-sided - you can choose which is the 'front' and the 'back'. One side has the shimmering sunshine meeting the sand in a very easy to work colour change pattern. The other side has the different textures of garter stitch with smooth stocking stitch. Little waves like a heat haze in the sunshine contrasting with the flat, polished sand.
Shown here knitted in grey and yellow sumptuous natural merino wool using Rowan Big Wool in shades Sun and Concrete. Suggested substitutes are shown below.
