I was inspired by Gerbera flowers, when I created this cushion, with their vivid petal colours contrasting strongly with a dark centre.
I’ve added shaping to the garter stitch stripes which form the petals, this means they curve nicely into smooth petal shapes.
I use high loft stufffing which is very light and does not pull the knitting out of shape- it’s worth investing in good quality polyfibre. It makes ahuge difference to finished appearance of your projects!
