"This is the 8th or 9th dead link I've hit this morning trying to look at the patterns from one newsletter, i can only presume that the person putting the newsletter together does not have time to check and verify the links."
"New pattern, first time I've seen a picture of it on this site. Unfortunately, there is a problem with the link, when you click on it you receive an "oops" message, that the pattern is no longer available."
"Not sure why you would leave your comment on an entirely different pattern but anyway, the pattern actually specifies and gives step by step instructions on what the chain 5 is- (Bring st back to left-hand needle. K1) 5 times Chain 5 made. Bring st back to left-hand needle. K4tog. Rep from to last 2 (3-1) st(s). Chain 5. Bring st back to left-hand needle. K3 (4-2) tog. Fasten off."

I made these charming rustic cushion covers when we first moved in to our new home together, I made them in a variety of different colours for each of the bedrooms and I have to admit they really make the rooms pop. Anyone that comes over always admires them. They were quick and simple but beautiful.

I am not crazy about the color but I think this is a really nice pattern. A friend has just made it and she did it in 2 different colors, all the knit sections in one color and all the purl sections in the other. The finished look is as though it really is a cover woven out of knitted strips and it really is very effective. I might just have a go myself.

I had pinned this pattern when I first saw it because I really liked the basket weave pattern and the simplicity of it. I wouldn't use a variegated or self-striping yarn because the basket weave offers enough texture already, but any tweedy or spotted-type yarn would be fine. A solid color would be great too.

I think this will be my first home decor item that I'll try in the knitting realm. I've always really liked the look of the basket weave and cushions are just so homey! Now I need to get busy and figure out what yarn I want to use. I think I'll change it up there a bit. Great pattern!

I have two cushions at home that have seen better days but have retained their shape, and this is just the pattern I need to give them a face lift. I would change the yarn from a tweedy to a more classic look, or even a variegated yarn, to fit my decor. The basket weave is a classic pattern so it fits in anywhere. Really nice!

This is the easiest of the three cushion covers I have found, and as I rather like things in threes, think it will be a great third with the other two. Oh but it is fun hunting through allfreeknitting.com to see what I can find that makes me want to break out needles and yarn at once - as Pop Larkin would say, it's perfick.

Pretty homespun pillow to use in your country cottage or lodge. I can imagine this design made up in Christmas colors for the holidays or in a soft off white to fit a shabby theme. The pattern is a simple knit and purl piece with no quirky finishes or increase/decrease.
