Knit a Cushion Cover with a Big Cable

big cable pillowAfter talking about knitting for spring yesterday, I have to say that cold weather (which I’m sure we’ll still see more of this season) makes me want to knit cozy things for the home. I mean, we’re inside so much this time of year, it might as well look nice, right?

The Feminine Touch has a great pattern for a cushion cover with a big cable the designer learned in a workshop with Martin Storey (doesn’t that sound lovely?). The cable is worked on the front with basketweave on the rest of the cover and a zip closure.

It looks super cozy and that cable is a fun one to try, too.

Have you even knit a pillow cover? I’d love to hear what you did!
