Marius-Inspired Sofa Cushion

Remember the project I started a couple of weeks ago with the enormous balls of yarn?
I am pleased to announce that the first scatter cushion is now done! I am mainly relieved that it didn't turn into another never finished 'UFO project' as I tend to get impatient and put it aside...

I kind of made it up as I went along and the front is loosely based on the traditional Marius-sweater pattern while the back is much simpler (I don't know the English word for it - lus we call them in Norwegian). I even put in a zip which is rather advanced work for me... 72 stiches and thick knitting needles made light work of it, to be honest.


Sorry about the picture quality - as we know, evening light is not the best for taking pictures. 
I think it works well on the sheepskin in the sofa.  

I also think I need two complimentary cushions... 
I have a plan for another one with a slightly different pattern, but again I don't promise when it will be ready.

And, yes - the balls of yarn are still ENORMOUS!

  3. Puten blei jo kjempefin og lus på baksiden var jo smart....strikket du på rundpinne eller for- og bakstykket hver for seg?

    1. Jo, jeg er fornoyd med en. Jeg strikket hvert stykke for seg og strikket en rille rand i hver ende (4 rader rettstrikk). Det viste seg a vaere lurt for da ble det en god kant a sy dem sammen med og til a sette lasen i og det ser pent ut.

  4. Åh, den ble helt nydelig! Imponert over selvkomponert mønster. Veldig lurt med lus på baksiden, ga jo veldig mye mer liv enn bare helt ensfarget! Legg gjerne ut flere bilder av hele puta :)

  5. Mette,
    This is wonderful! Wow! How long did it take you? Very professional! Also, I have to thank you for the fitted sheet folding tutorial ... I knew part of it, but not the whole thing, so thank you!
    I guess you've got winter now like we do ... keep warm,
    Sarah
