What you need to know

Master the intarsia method with Nicola Valiji's caravan cushion project.

Pack up your bags and hit the road with this fabulous caravan motif cushion! The striped background is really easy to knit, and the bunting and caravan designs are knitted separately and sewn on afterwards. The caravan uses the intarsia method to work the door and window, and we've got both charted and written instructions. These could also be Swiss darned if you prefer.

Top knit tip

When knitting stripes, you don't have to cut and rejoin the yarn after every section. To save time at the end – and reduce the amount of yarn used – you can carry the yarn not being used up the side of the work. Twist the strands together every few rows to prevent large loops from forming.

Meet the designer

Nicola Valiji is a regular designer for Let's Knit Together – she first learned how to knit while making a Jean Greenhowe doll with help from her nan. If you enjoyed making this pattern, why not make this watermelon bunting next? You can view more of Nicola's designs here.
