Palm Leaf Cushion

by Martin Storey

Skill Level

The palm leaf motif on this large cushion uses just two colours and the intarsia technique to striking effect. Designed by Martin Storey, the use of the ever popular Felted Tweed Aran gives great stitch definition and highlights the colorwork beautifully. The completed cushion will fit a 50cm (20 in) square cushion pad.

The big sister to classic Felted Tweed, this rustic Aran-weight yarn is available in a range of classic colours and is a beautiful choice for cosy winter knits. The complimentary colours sit perfectly together in stripes or Fair Isle colourwork, or shine on their own in cables and textured stitches. With an alchemic combination of 50% lightly-felted wool, 25% viscose and 25% alpaca, this is a yarn that's often imitated, but never bettered.
