How you Made it: Torridon Cushion

The Torridon Cushion featured in the very first issue of knitonthenet in November 2006. A beautiful addition to any chair, the original was knitted in an alpaca blend using a colour palette from nature.

There have been some lovely interpretations of the pattern including the two below which were knitted by Clasca from Amsterdam as gifts.

The red version, knitted from soft merino wool was made for her niece, while the green cushion below, she knitted for her sister in law.

Be sure to click through and check out the colours she has used on the flap of the cushion - she's put some great colours together.

If anybody reading has made a Torridon cushion, please do let us know in the comments. We'd love to hear from you.
