Autumn Vine Cushion Using Rowan Felted Tweed
A striking blend of geometry and grace, the Autumn Vine Cushion weds crisp, colorblocked bands with a flowing, leafy motif. This cushion cover looks classic, yet modern, in three different colors—two tonal and one contrasting. Even the reverse side, with its simple, seed-stitch button band, is lovely.
The Autumn Vine Cushion is knit in Rowan Felted Tweed, a warm, woolly favorite. This fiber is on the finer side of DK-weight and blends merino wool with alpaca and viscose. As a result, it has softness and spring, drape and luster—and beautiful color options! In fact, for the Seasonal Palette collection, Dee Harwicke has composed a palette of eight colors inspired by the Welsh countryside and her watercolor paintings.
