Cable cushions

Where does the time go? I made these cushions during the winter but have only just managed to find the time to finish them off! It’s not that they needed a lot of work but if truth be told I somehow ran out of steam and put them to one side. In a fit of finishing off jobs last week I made them up and cleared the pile of clothing needing repairs, left me feeling rather virtuous.

Made with lovely squishy yet hard wearing Jacob Yarn from The Knitting Gift Shop. It’s simple moss stitch finished with three wooden buttons. Worried that it was a little too plain I hooked up five roses using this pattern from Attic 24. Looks rather good I think.

There was also some lovely mid grey Jacab yarn that needed using up and as I was on a roll with cushion making and had recently mastered a cable or two I set to and made another.

A relatively simple stag horn cable pattern free from New Stitch a Day.

Once I got into the rhythm of this it was a joy to knit.

Don’t you just love envelope cushion covers? Such little sewing to do. Closures for this are 6 mis-matched buttons from my stash.

Of the two I think I prefer the grey, probably because I think I’m hooked on cables, I just love the texture and the Jacob Aran wool from The Knitting Gift Shop is just perfect for it. You can see my previous cable attempt here
