Built on a foundation of Norwegian folk art and a playful love for colour, the new cushion collection from ARNE & CARLOS for ROWAN features an array of designs that can be mixed and matched to the maker’s desire.
This pattern consists of one floral design and one geometric design, which can either be used with a plain cushion back, or paired front and back to spectacular effect!
Vesla Cushion – Version B (fair isle front, solid back in Tuscan Red 253)
NOTE: Lea is a substitute shade for Tuscan Red because of low stock quantities.

Version B kit includes: 4 balls of Softyak in colors:
H. Lawn 241 – 1 ball
I. Driftwood 244 – 1 ball
J. Tuscan Red 253 – 2 balls (J. is used for the pillow back)
