PDF Knitting Pattern for a Classic Mini Cushion


When I first started to drive it was in a mini – a classic mini that is – I’m old enough that the BMW version hadn’t arrived at that time!

My first car was a Mini Clubman Estate.  I loved Minis, it was like driving a go-kart.  I couldn’t resist knitting a Classic Mini inspired Cushion.  My Dad has helped me with the design (we thought that such a classic British car had to fly the flag).  This pattern is the result so now you can make your own Mini inspired cushion!

The finished cushion measures 40cm/16 inches square and if you’d like to knit your own this is what you’ll need:

1 pair 4mm knitting needles

Approximately 190 grams (570 metres/615 yards) of Double Knitting weight yarn.

I used five colours:

60g/180 m/194 yds Navy Blue

40g/120 m/130 yds Red

25g/75 m/81 yds Grey

20g/60 m/ 65 yds Denim Blue

45g/135 m /145 yds White

and a tiny amount of Orange for the indicators.

5 x 2.5cm/1 inch buttons (you also have an options to crochet covers for the buttons.  For this you’ll need a 4mm crochet hook.)

1 x 40cm/16 inch cushion pad.

I’m based in the UK so my patterns are all written in English using UK terminology.

The pattern includes colour charts as well as written instructions.
