HiKoo Simplicity Dutch Lente Cushion Kit
Dutch Lente Cushion Kit
In Dutch, “lente” means “springtime,” and Holland is famous for its springtime tulips! In The Netherlands, tulips symbolize perfect love; and each color has a different meaning. Let the colors change and shift on their own as your garden grows or pick your blooms carefully by choosing which part of HiKoo® Simplicity Multi to work with next.
This cheerful colorwork cushion is knit in the round, with only one seam along the top! The envelope closure is done at the end by picking up stitches along the sides as you knit the inner and outer ribbing, this technique ensures a snug fit that will keep your cushion closed with no need for snaps or buttons!
This project can be knit with two needles, one circular in a smaller circumference, or on a longer needle using the Magic Loop method.
Written and charted instructions are available for the colorwork.
