PDF Knitting Pattern for a Mini Cushion Cover


Judging by how many Minis I see out on the road, they are a very popular car!  I learned to drive in a Mini (though mine was Old School!).  This cushion cover is based on the modern Mini.

So here we have it, one cushion cover which measures approximately 40cm/16″ square (tension is 16 sts and 20 rows to 10cm/4″).  It is made using Chunky yarn and knitted up on 6.5mm needles.  It uses 4 colours in total, weight and length as follows: Cream (200g/320m), Red, (20g/32m), Dark Grey (20g/32m), Light Grey (20g/32m). A basic stocking stitch is used throughout. I used the intarsia method for my colour changes (lot’s of videos on YouTube if you’re not sure about this technique).  I’m based in the UK and my terminology/abbreviations are written UK style.

To finish your cushion off you’ll need:

a Cushion Pad 45cm/18”square

5 buttons approximately 2.5cm/1”wide
