By making just 2 motifs on the Large Butterfly Loom you can create this lovely pom-pom fronted cushion.
Loom used Large Butterfly Loom
Techniques used Knotting – Ladder & Cross stitch
Joining Double Butterfly Twist*
Materials 400g Aran weight wool
Cushion pad approx. 32x32cm
Wire dog brush (optional)
Follow Basic Wrapping and Knotting in the Instruction Booklet.
Front – Make one motif by wrapping 9 rows. Use the ladder knotting techniques.
Back – Make one motif by wrapping 6 rows. Use the cross stitch knotting technique.
Hold wrong sides together and using the Double Butterfly Twist* technique join the front and back together, when 3 sides are joined insert the cushion pad and complete the joining. (* If the yarn is too thick it is ok to use single Butterfly Twist).
To make the pom-pom effect, leave the first row of each edge and using a sharp pair of scissors, cut ¾ of the way through the side of each knot so the underneath strands are still intact. Using the dog brush, brush each pom-pom to make it fluffy.
