WIP Wednesday: Jessica and Robert’s Dream Cushion Cover

WIP Wednesday

Two weeks ago, I was struggling with this project. My original idea of using Woolly Thoughts’ Curve of Pursuit as a design was not working and I was finding the colors challenging. So I was not making any progress, which I meant I felt guilty as this is a wedding present. An after-the-fact wedding present, but still. A couple of days later, I dreamt a design. I also bought more yarn as I was following Kaffe Fassett‘s Principle: “If you are unsure about the colors, add more”.

So here is the beginning:

Start of cushion cover

After my dream, I sketched out the pattern in my knitting journal:

The top shows one corner in detail and the bottom the whole cover in scale. Click on the pictures for more pictures.

There is a deliberate mathematics theme. The plus signs between the blocks of color, which were in the dream pattern, needed more company. I may duplicate stitch the initials of my friends somewhere on the cover. Mind you, this is one of three – two cushion covers, two sides each – so I could put their initials somewhere else.
