Beginners Knitting Project
Availabie in Aran undyed off white only. For more colours see our lightweight DK range of cushions.Size: 41cm x 41cm
Includes: 200g alpaca/merino yarn, pattern, project bag, and as optional extras, 5.5mm needles and a 41cm duck feather cushion
  • Detailed Description

    This is a PERFECT beginner's knitting project because: you will be able to hone a quality technique: Firstly, you'll cast on, and then get started with just one stitch, Knit, to create the Garter Stitch pattern on one side of the cushion. On the second side of the cushion you will learn the next stitch, Purl, to create the Stocking Stitch pattern. Then we mix up the two stitches to create the Moss Stitch pattern, and include buttonholes. Finally, you'll cast off, and sew up with mattress stitch.


    Side 1: Casting on, and knit stitch 

    Side 2: Knit stitch, knit, purl, and moss stitch, buttonholes, and casting off


    We have videos for all these stitches on our How To videos page

    The finished size is 41cm x 41cm and includes, optionally a cushion pad made with European Duck Feather. If you have a smaller cushion pad, you can of course adjust the pattern to fit. Let us know, and we will even include the revised number of stitches you will need to cast on for your own pad.

    * "baby alpaca" means the fleece used has a very fine micron and is therefore especially soft, not that we stole the fleece from a baby cria!

What our customers have to say about the kits

I loved the way that it came packed in the box with everything that you need to complete the cushion cover. The instructions are easy to understand, I might need some help with the buttonholes. I've probably done about 10cm today, it's been quite therapeutic, the wool is so soft, lovely to handle.

I  am a relative beginner so not perfectly knitted but pleased with result. Photo doesn't show true colours

Loved way the wool knitted will be getting some more sometime.


I am a beginner knitter, and this was only the second thing I have ever knitted. I was a bit worried about changing colours, but it was easy and I LOVE the wool so much. Now starting knitting a Longdrop hat for myself in the same fawn as the cushion.
Maddie E

Very pleased with my jacket. I don’t do a lot of knitting but couldn’t refuse my daughter when she asked if I could knit this jacket. It was more complicated than I thought but learnt a few new techniques with the use of your ‘how to’ videos. 

Gill M

I managed to lose the pattern so was sent another copy by email and first class post. Thank you so much, it is so refreshing to receive great customer service.

I got a Knitting kit. I had a lot of fun knitting my hat. It fits really nicely and keeps me warm and it is really good quality. The instructions are really clear and it was my first time knitting

Thank you Emma, the wool is beautiful to work with and your service is excellent !

Beautiful quality - pattern easy to follow. Ordered on Friday, received on Saturday - doesn?t get any better. The hat is warm and soft, and you get to wear alpaca without harming it.

I just wanted to let you know that I finished my cushion yesterday .... sewing up isn’t my strongest point but I am ‘none the less’, chuffed with the end result! I am just about to order my next cushion kit from you too!

First class service. There was an unexpected run on the colour I ordered. Emma kept me updated. When the kit arrived, I emailed her to let her know. She was both friendly and professional, and gave me some hints and tips, and it was a great project to make up.

Superfast deivery. Exellent item. I will definitely be ordering again!

Hello, I wanted to show you the finished longdrop. It was so much fun to get back into knitting after all these years, and I loved the beautiful soft alpaca yarn. Thank you.
