Cliff Edge Cushion Cover
Lion Brand Mandala, color 240D Groot

Create a soothing sanctuary with handmade throw pillows. Crocheted or knit in Lion Brand Mandala yarn, we love how that pop of color makes us smile. Make one as an accent or create a pillow oasis with multiples. Each pillow uses just 1 cake of Mandala!

It is impossible to resist the gorgeous colors of Mandala. Each cake of stunning, color changing yarn transitions from one magical hue to the next. The versatile, DK weight yarn is incredibly soft & easy to care for as well.

Our crochet option is the Cliff Edge Cushion Cover. Using a back post & front post double crochet stitch, the front & back of the cover are made separately, then crocheted together. One side is left open to slide in a pillow insert & then buttons are attached on that side.

The knit version is the Tassel Trimmed Pillow by Bobbie Fitzgerald. The smooth stockinette stitch really lets the colors of Mandala shine. Similar to the crochet version, the front & back are knit separately, then seamed on three sides. Fun tassels are attached & then the side is seamed closed after the insert is in place.
