Prowling Wolf Cushion

I have just put the finishing touches (amazing how long it takes me to sew on fasteners!) to this cushion.  It started life as a picture but needed more form so inspired by the recent trend for knitted home accessories a cushion it became.  The front is hand knitted in Rowan Fine Tweed and the back is a reinvention of a UFO in Rowan Felted Tweed  keeping as much of the sense of a sweater as possible as a nod to its original intentions.

  1. I love this, you have captured the essence of wolf… I can really appreciate the texture and feel of the wool through your design. I know I’m late with my comments, but have been nurturing a prowling wolf of my own…
