If you are thinking you would like to try your hand at Fair isle (multi-colored)
knitting, this would be a good project to start. The cushion front
is worked in three colors but only TWO colors are ever carried
at the same time. A tutorial for working from chart patterns is included.
As there is no increase or decrease shaping to do,
you can concentrate on the multi-color knitting technique.
The edges are finished with easy I-Cord edging and the backing
can be fashioned in either a knitted stockinette piece or a fabric backing.
