Knit Simple Magazine Winter 2013 #26

Design by Amy Bahrt

Dapper dachshunds with embroidered-on faces decorate the front of this cushion. Blocks of color created intarsia-style provide visual punch; garter-stitch bands separate each motif and anchor the button closure on the back. Knitted I-cord makes a cute 3-D tail for each perky pup.
