Rated 2 out of 5 by SDickens Lovely design but some issues
I am a beginner at knitting and thought this project with clear instructions and all I need would be ideal. However, there is a mistake in the pattern (the last cable doesn't come out right) and as others have already commented there was not enough wool to complete the cushion cover. Wish I had seen their reviews before I purchased this kit! Rather disappointed.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Roxee Straight forward instructions, great result
Straight forward instructions, easy to follow. Everything you need is included. Good way to learn cable knitting. Fits a standard sized cushion pad. The only negative is that I had to buy some extra wool to finish sewing it together. I was only about one metre short so hopefully Hobbycraft can fix this easily.

Rated 3 out of 5 by sarah25 Disappointed
I was initially very pleased with the contents of the knitted cushion kit, which even included sewing needles and thread. What was disappointing was the amount of joins in the yarn and also on nearing finishing the cushion realising there was not enough yarn to complete the pattern as set. Even allowing for a difference in tension it was still about half a ball short. Also as I bought one for myself and one as a gift , I assume both kits will be short on yarn.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Toonlass Quick and easy to knit
This is a nice pattern and is quick and easy to knit. The negatives are that the * on line 13 of the pattern is in the wrong place which could throw you if you are new to knitting and most annoying, I found that three out of the 4 balls of wool had breaks in them which had been joined with a knot, which is frustrating when you find it in the middle of a line. I would use the pattern again though, just buy different wool.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Jlo9 Nice and easy
I always thought that cable knit was really hard this proved different I managed to complete this with in a couple of days. The patten was really easy to follow and this was the first patten I have ever used as before I have just made blankets and have just stuck to squares.

Rated 1 out of 5 by pincanto chunky knit cushion cover
Out of the four chunky knit cushion covers I bought must say very disappointed the first one the yarn had a few knots in it which were very noticeable and the second one that I have done so far had buttons missing from the kit so the two I have done so far have had problems either in the yarn or missing parts

Rated 3 out of 5 by tobsters cushion kit
I was really impressed with this kit as it had everything needed to start knitting. Instruction were good, but unfortunately ran out of wool with a remaining 6 rows to complete project.

Rated 3 out of 5 by presentbuyer item not as described on website
This item was described on website as a crochet craft kit. I ordered this as a gift for a friend. It may be a nice knitting kit but was not what I wanted. Therefore will return.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Lizzydripping It's actually a knitting kit
This product is advertised as a crochet kit, but is really a knitting kit. It's for a present so have given it anyway, might be too hard for a beginner though.
