This is a PERFECT beginner's knitting project because: you will be able to hone a quality technique: 1. 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.
2. On the second side of the cushion you will learn the next stitch, Purl, to create the Stocking Stitch pattern.
3. Then we mix up the two stitches to create the Moss Stitch pattern, and include buttonholes.
4. You'll cast off, and sew up with mattress stitch.
By the end of this work you will be a great knitter! !
