Santa Cushion

I was inspired make a machine knit version of this Bernat Santa Cushion crochet pattern.

The first challenge was to how to get the diagonal effect on the knitting machine.

I made a square and then folded back the corners. The seams were then mattress/kitchener stitched. 
I added several rows of latch tool chain stitch (behind the stitches); this firmed up the edge, before casting off.

The Chinese Ball buttons used for the closure at the back were fun to make.

I crocheted the red ball nose using the Amigurumi technique.

Eyelash yarn was added for the beard which was weaved with the white yarn.
