Nanna’s Cushion


NANNA’S CUSHION features three (3) variations of a cushion featuring the famous Mammy’s Love heart cable!

The instructions are for just one size (18″ x 18″ / 46cm x 46cm) and requires 4 buttons.  The variations are; one heart, two hearts and one heart with ribbed sides.  There’s lots of knitting involved in this pattern and the end result looks so smart – a great addition to the nursery or lounge!

NANNA’S CUSHION – a cushion incorporating the timeless Mammy’s Love heart cable!  There are three variations contained within this one knitting pattern to guarantee variety!  Choose from one or two hearts and the added extra of ribbed sides!

My Irish roots have inspired my love of the Aran style of knitting and I have introduced a modern twist to my creations.

Size Guide:  The pattern is three variations of a cushion featuring the Mammy’s Love heart cable.

Wool & yarn recommendation…

I often get asked which wool I use and who my yarn supplier is!  For this knit I have used Stylecraft Special Aran which I selected for its softness, it is very gentle on a baby’s skin.  There are over 88 different shades available through LoveCrafts, who are my preferred yarn and wool supplier.  (Spend over £25 to get free P&P and sign up their newsletter for 15% off your first order!)… I would also recommend Paintbox Aran for this pattern.

    What a lovely pattern to knit. The single cable cushion is good choice if you are new to cabling. Mine takes pride of place on my sofa. Will soon be making more.
