i knit this using yarn leftovers. the pattern is my own and i made the buttons out of fimo clay. it should be a little more square shaped, but i don't have enough stuffing in it yet. size is 11-inches by 9.5-inches.

Cute!  And I love the colors!  What're you stuffing it with?

i don't have a cushion (or stuffing) for it to cover yet so i have it stuffed with plastic bags for the photo. i plan on getting some stuffing at the craft store or finding a cushion for it. it is super stretchy so it should fit a 10 or 12 inch cushion.

CUUTE!  What a good idea!  Do the buttons actually button or are they just decorative?  I love how many there are.  That rules!  If you posted a pattern, I would be a happy happy girl.

they button.  Smiley

If you posted a pattern, I would be a happy happy girl. 

there isn't really i made it up as i went along. but i'll try:

yarn: less then one skein each of lambs pride worsted 85% wool/ 15% mohair. one each of brown, dark dark turquoise and light turquoise (or better yet what ever scraps you have)

needles: us size 9

gage: 4stitches= one inch

buttons: 8 1-inch buttons

begin ribs for back:
in brown cast on 50.
k 3rows of garter stitch
row 4: p2, k4* to end, p2
continue  knitting in patter for 5 rows.
next 2 rows: knit a 2 stitch button hole in the middle of each rib.
until it measures 9.5 inches. ending with a WS row.

begin striped front:
change to dark turquoise
knit 1 row
next row k25 p25
knit stitches as they appear until strip part is 12 inches
at the same time, begin stripe pattern.

finish ribs for back:
continue working in dark turquoise
 p2, k4* to end, p2
knit stitches as they appear for one inch
switch to brown,
continue knitting stitches as they appear until piece measures 5 inches
knit 3 rows in garter stitch.
bind off

finshing:
weave in ends.
sew seams.
sew 1 button on each rib.
stuff.

my stripe pattern:

color -----------------rows
dark turquoise --8
brown,  ---------------2
light turquoise  --6
dark turquoise--4
brown,  ---------------8
light turquoise  --2
dark turquoise --6
brown,  ---------------4

I LOVE the colors in this - you have a great eye!

This looks like one of those "extras" they include in the back of the Rowan magazine.  Very mod and very cute.  I love the contrast between the vertical ribs and the horizontal striping (or is it the other way around)
