Knit a Cushion Cover based on the VW Beetle / Bug

Phew, it’s been a busy few weeks over the summer holidays trotting around the VW events in our camper van but we’ve now finished the VDub season and I’m frantically trying to get ready for Yarndale, a wonderful woolly extravaganza which will be at Skipton Auction Mart  on the 28th and 29th September.

I thought I’d share my latest creation with you because even though we may have finished the VW season ourselves there is still plenty going on out there and my head is still full of ideas for woolly Dubs.

This latest pattern is based on the VW Beetle (or Bug if you prefer depending which side of the water you’re on).

I made the cushion cover using Wendy Serenity Super Chunky yarn which I love – it knits up fast, it’s really soft and you only need 3 x 100g balls to make the cover.

If you fancy having a go yourself you can get the PDF pattern from our shop for just £1.99.  Of course we sell Serenity Super Chunky yarn and needles too but lots of you have probably already got a plentiful supply at home just begging to be made into a cushion cover.

Happy knitting 🙂
