Queen Bee is part of my new cushion collection.
The front of the cushion is knitted using the Intarsia technique to create a big bold bee design. The reverse of the cushion is as interesting to knit as the front, with a honeycomb pattern and the addition of embroidered bees.
I used Skein Queen Crush DK for the bee and Coopknits Socks Yeah DK for the background. Kits available soon!
You will also need a 45cm cushion pad.
