Knitting holidays in France Stitch along - a knitting and crochet project designed by Carol Meldrum and Sue Culligan

Scroll down the page to download the free patterns each week.

I have teamed up with Carol Meldrum to create a weekly stitch along. The finished project will be a cushion made up from 9 different squares, you have the option to work in either knit or crochet or combine the two crafts. The inspiration for the project comes from some of the photos we have taken at knitting holidays in France over the past few years. We hope you will all enjoy taking part in this free project and look forward to having a show and tell when the cushions are completed. 

The designs are worked in double knit yarn and are great stash busters, using up lots of oddments of yarn.

Materials needed to complete one panel of 9 squares - approx 270g DK weight wool or wool mix yarn. Some of the knitted squares require a few Debbie Abrahams beads size 6.

You can back the cushion cover with fabric, knit or crochet another panel of 9 squares or knit or crochet a striped back (pattern will be provided for this at the end of project). 

You can vary the colours according to your taste, we have used mainly neutrals, green and blue with splashes of colour.
