Tiles and Tesserae Wrap

The golden colour of the yarn evokes the gold that was used in the most lavish of ancient Roman and Byzantine mosaics. Universal Yarn Magnolia yarn is a luxurious blend of modal and cashmere, and it has a glorious sheen and drape. Notes are provided in the pattern so that you can personalize the size of your wrap.

Soft Tiles Cushion Cover
Soft Tiles Cushion Cover
Mosaic knitting is used here to create a cushion cover that resembles richly patterned tiles. The back and front could be made to be identical, but here I have reversed the colours so that the back is a negative image of the front. The cushion cover is knit at a firm gauge to help prevent pilling over time and is slightly smaller, blocked, than the pillow form to ensure a tight fit. In the sample, the two pieces are sewn together with a blanket stitch of both colours of yarn held together, but, if you prefer, you could use an invisible seam, like the mattress stitch, and insert a zipper on one edge so that the cover could be removed for laundering. Includes material list, knitting instructions are written and charted. Using 2 balls each colour 828 Pulp and 814 Petrol Blue of Universal Yarn Deluxe DK Superwash finished measurements cushion cover pieces 15” x 15” [38 x 38cm], blocked stuffed cushion 16” x 16” [40.5 x 40.5cm]

Aran Inspired Scarf
Aran Inspired Scarf
This scarf is inspired by the intricate cable motifs of Aran fishermen’s sweaters, but it is not knit in a traditional style.

Instructions for three sizes are given, and notes are provided for altering both the length and width of the piece so that you can personalize it as desired. Natural coloured yarns would be most traditional, but the piece can be made in any colour, and its cabled design would suit anyone regardless of age or gender.

Leafy Vines Wrap
Leafy Vines Wrap
One’s first thoughts about gardens are often about colour, flowers, and the birds and butterflies that they attract. But gardens are also about foliage and various calming shades of green.

The yarn is Universal Yarn Bella Cash, a soft, round, fine-weight yarn with good stitch definition, and a luxurious feel thanks to the cashmere in the blend.
