A double-knit op-art seat cushion in bulky yarn
Despite the fact that it’s first in the collection, this is actually the latest Parallax pattern. I designed it to help my LYS, Mind’s Eye Yarns, move an overstock of bulky yarn inherited from the previous owner. It’s the largest yarn I’ve ever double-knit with and while I’m glad I had the opportunity to try, I’ll stick to smaller needles from now on.
Still, it’s a quick project in cushy yarn made doubly cushy with the double thickness. And what better to make from cushy yarn but … a cushion! The double-knit fabric makes it comfortable to sit on without having to stuff it, and the Parallax grid gives it the illusion of being more three-dimensional than it actually is.
This pattern is available as part of the Parallax collection in print and digital versions.
